"When I heard there would be a plaque, there was much discussion amongst my friends as to what would constitute a horror award. The verdict when it arrived was, 'that’s the coolest trophy ever.' The design is really great and I’m sure this year’s winner will love theirs as much as I do. I keep it in my library, next to the horror novels of course." Siobhan Bailey, May '06
