A Gracious Word of Thanks (or three) from the Editors

Matt Hilton says:

A few weeks ago, I posted here to say that Thrillers, Killers 'n' Chillers was nominated in the Preditors and Editors readers' poll to find the favourite webzine on the Net. Now, I must say that the site is primarily aimed at readers of Horror and Dark Fiction, so we were in a more favourable position than some of the other crime/noir sites (some of them that I would quite happily have voted for myself) due to the fact that a pretty large quota of our contributors are writing in the horror and dark fiction genres. Well, it's with great pride and with great gratitude that I announce that TK'n'C did indeed win the coveted first place position, beating off some pretty damn fantastic competition along the way. We don't claim that we're better than they are, maybe we just have more voters. Have a look here for confirmation of the results: http://anotherealm.com/prededitors/votefictzine09.htm

Now then, I like to think of myself as a humble and self-effacing kind of guy, so I don't want to take all the praise or adulation. I want you, our contributors, our readers and our supporters to bask for a moment in the glory. Without any of you TK'n'C would be a pretty boring place to visit.

Thanks to everyone who voted. Thanks also to Col Bury for all his hard work in making the site as great as it is. And thanks to Preditors and Editors for bestowing the award on us.

Col Bury says:

To beat off some extremely stiff competition and win this accolade in our first year is breathtaking . It's an absolute pleasure and honour to accept this award on behalf of our fantastic band of contributors. It's a privilege to be the co-editor of such a diverse and entertaining site, so a heartfelt 'thanks' to Matt for giving little old me the opportunity to play my part. This award proves there's not only an abundance of undiscovered talent out there, but also here on TKnC. It's customary to thank me mum so 'thanks mum!' Also I raise a glass to blog-monster extraordinaire, Lee Hughes (there's summat in it,am not gonna smash it over his head TKnC style!), for nominating us, and of course to Preditors & Editors for running the poll.

Most importantly thanks to all our writers, readers and to everyone who voted.
Onwards 'n' upwards,
