Nightmare Noir, by Alex Azar, was the heavy hitter. "Liquid Marble" was chosen as the best horror short story. The collection itself took second place in the Anthology category.
The book cover (by T.J. Halvorsen) also finished in the Top Ten, and, in an interesting twist, Nightmare Noir was in the Top Ten in both the Best Anthology and Best Mystery Novel categories.
"Dead Man Hanging" by Georgia Ruth (from History and Mystery, Oh My!) and "Alien Dust" by Chelsea Nolen (from Strangely Funny 2 1/2) both placed in the top ten of the "Best All Other Short Stories" category.
