The winner of the Toys for Tots Horror Style library is Paul Cardullo of North Carolina! The winner was selected by drawing; Cardullo receives an entire library of horror novels, short story collections, magazine, music and other goodies donated by horror writers and publishers. The kitty includes a signed copy of Peter Straub’s Floating Dragon, William Meikle’s The Amulet, Gary A. Braunbeck’s In the Midnight Museum, and loads more (I was honored to donate a copy of Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole).

To enter, participants purchased a toy that was $5 or more, took photos of themselves holding the toy and in a Toys for Tots donation box, and posted their photos on the Toys for Tots Horror Style Facebook page: (you can head over to their page and see all the submissions under their Photo Album “Toys for Tots ~ Our Santas in Training.”) The winner was announced on YouTube; you can see that video here:
