HNU lecturer in English David Goldweber’s latest book, Claws & Saucers, has been nominated as the 2012 Book of the Year by the 11th Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards. The Rondo awards were created in 2002 by David Colton and Kerry Gammill at the Classic Horror Film Boards (CHFB). Nominees are selected by suggestions from horror fans at the CHFB and finalized by Colton and 20 other fans.
Claws & Saucers is an encyclopedic guide to classic science fiction, horror, and fantasy films. It covers nearly every film of the genre from 1902–1982. Goldweber introduced the book to a salon audience in July 2012 at the Paul J. Cushing Library.
