Howard Hopkins receives lifetime achievement award.
Known for his ability to work in multiple genres as well as his absolute love for all things Pulp, Howard first came to the notice of many Pulp fans as the publisher of Golden Perils, one of the first and premier Pulp fanzines. Hopkins' publishing career involved many stories in many genres and included him working not only as a writer, but as a Pulp historian and an Editor.
This award will be given posthumously as Hopkins passed away suddenly on January 12, 2012. "This recognition," Hancock acknowledged, "is well deserved. Nominated last year, Howard was the fifth highest nominated in 2011 for the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award. One needs simply to look at the voluminous list of fiction as well as non fiction and editing Howard did to see that this award is the least that he is worthy of. Many of us have learned how to better our craft because of Howard. And we will continue to learn from him for years to come."
