There are always certain people who make such an impression on you that their memory is always a part of you. Kelly Goldberg was one of those people. We only met once or twice at conventions, but her personality and writing ability made a strong dent in my memory that has lasted long after her passing in 2005.
She also made a strong impression on Jean Goldstrom, Gary Markette and the readers of Anotherealm.com. After she died they started the dgk goldberg Horror Award, but due to the economy and other factors it has not been awarded.
This week I received an email from a friend of Kelly's, Elaine Dinerman, and was able to put her in touch with Jean and Gary. She is going to fund the award and the other awards that Anotherealm bestows.
Thank you Elaine for doing this and helping to keep Kelly's memory and legacy alive
