His novel Flesh was named Best Horror Novel of 1988 by Science Fiction Chronicle, and both Flesh and Funland were nominated for the Bram Stoker Award, as was his non-fiction work A Writer's Tale. He won this award posthumously in 2001 for The Traveling Vampire Show. His win was used as an answer for a question on the syndicated Jeopardy program.
The tribute anthology In Laymon's Terms was released by Cemetery Dance Publications during the summer of 2011. It featured short stories and non-fiction tribute essays by authors such as Bentley Little, Jack Ketchum, Gary Brandner, Edward Lee, and scores of others.

It is about 2 sisters written alternately from the point of one sister - Penelope - and from the point of the other sister (Melanie)' s boyfriend, Bodie. Both of these characters are very likeable as always with Laymon.
I found this book stange as it seems more of a mystery thriller than a horror, the plot being of combination of Penelope being increasingly afraid and paranoid of some obscene phone calls she recieved and Melanie, Bodie and Penelope trying to find out how the girls' father ended up in hospital after a hit-and-run (as Melanie suspects their step-mother and her lover).
Slightly different from Laymons usual style but a very good and enjoyable read, with an interesting twist at the end.
