There was so much news in the mystery community yesterday that I forgot to post the Dilys Awards. The Dilys Award is given annually by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association to the mystery title of the year which the

in honor of Dilys Winn, the founder of the first specialty bookseller of
mystery books in the United States, and is presented at the Left Coast
Crime mystery convention.
