Pitt Horror Studies Collection grows

The University Library System’s Horror Studies Collection has two new additions: the archive of the Horror Writers Association and the papers of Kathe Koja.

Ben Rubin, the Horror Studies Collection coordinator, made the announcement May 22 during an online event for Stokercon, the Horror Writers Association’s annual convention.

The association’s archive includes newsletters and convention guides showing the community built through the organization. Koja's papers document her career and illuminate her creative process through drafts and manuscripts. She won the Bram Stoker Award and the Locus Award for her first novel “The Cipher.”

The Horror Studies Collection also includes the George A. Romero Archival Collection, the Daniel Kraus papers, and the John A. Russo collection
