The Horror Writers Association has announced that the 2009 Specialty Press Award has been awarded to Bloodletting Press.
Bloodletting Press is based in Modesto, California and is run by Larry Roberts and his wife, Debra Roberts. They have been publishing fine limited edition books since 2002. Their titles are all highly prized by both collectors and readers alike.
Recently, Bloodletting has formed a new imprint, Morning Star Books as well as a joint venture with Delirium Books for very high-end collectible books, Infernal House Books.
Bloodletting and Delirium have also collaborated to create the Horror Mall, one of the world’s largest bookstores specializing in horror, as well as The Haunt, a social networking site for horror fans.
In its several dozen books, Bloodletting has published many of the modern masters of the horror field including Brian Keene, Douglas Clegg, Edward Lee, Jack Ketchum, Ray Garton, and James A. Moore. All of their books have used outstanding design and production techniques.
