The Black Tentacle is a special achievement award. It is handed out at the discretion of The Kitschies’ board, which is comprised of editors, authors, marketers and entrepreneurs.
The prize is awarded for a work or body of work that does not otherwise fit The Kitschies’ criteria. The winner receives a hand-crafted tentacle.
Previous winners include Patrick Ness’ Save the Children fundraiser, Sarah McIntyre for the #PicturesMeanBusiness and *NonIdentikit campaigns, Malorie Blackman, OBE, The World SF Blog, innovative comic book publisher SelfMadeHero and Donald Westlake’s stunning posthumous novel Memory, published by Hard Case Crime.
