The award given for an outstanding writers of horror or an awesome 'dark fantasy' writers.
Although this is an annual award, but the award criteria itself more to the achievement of the author, and not about their work in that year. Thus, although their work maybe not published in the same year with the awards, but the author could still be nominated for the award.
