I was very happy that Harley won. She’s both a fine writer and a terrific person.
Great headline per Otto Penzler-Ed Gorman
Just out of curiosity, are any of the winners “cozies?”
That Penzler character would get on well with the President of Harvard, methinks.
All the winners are cozies. The Agatha awards are for cozy mysteries.
I was thrilled to see DATING DEAD MEN won as well. I just read it and loved it.
Oh, my bad. I was thinking these were the Edgars.
I absolutely loved Chasing Vermeer!!! It was ssssoooo suspenseful. There were so many Red Herrings I could not believe it!!! I am so happy that Chasing Vermeer won an award!!! It is truly a FANTASTIC book!!!
