We're thrilled to announce that David Zeltserman's THE CARETAKER OF LORNE FIELD was shortlisted by the ALA for the 2011 RUSA Reading List in the Horror category. It was a great year for genre fiction in general (two Overlook favorites, Olen Steinhauser and Louise Penney, were also winners) but we're excited that Zeltserman's quirky "superb mix of humor and horror" (Publishers Weekly) got some much-deserved recognition.
