I saw over at the Candy or Medicine blog that Ed Moorman has been selected as one of the new Xeric Grant winners. The book will be Ghost Stories (pictured above). I don't know if I've seen any of the stuff that will be in that book but I've seen a lot of Ed's comics over the past year and have been very impressed. Congratulations to Ed and all of the other Xeric winners. This combined with some other news bits I'll comment on later make me sure that 2009 will be a big year for a lot of minicomic's finest.
