Since 1987, the Horror Writer's Association has handed out the Bram Stoker Award for superior achievement in several categories of horror. By rewarding superior achievement, instead of the best novel, the HWA intended to make ties in a category possible.

This year they handed out the awards during Stokercon 2017 aboard The Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at the annual Bram Stoker Award banquet.

Besides awarding the authors of some of the best horror books published last year, they also gave out special recognition awards.

Dennis Etchison and Thomas F. Monteleone both received the Lifetime Achievement Award which is "presented to individuals whose entire body of work has substantially influenced Horror."

Caren Hanten received the President's Richard Laymon Service Award.

James Chambers received the Silver Hammer Award.

Linda Addison received the Mentor of the Year Award.
