Macavity Awards

I just presented the Macavity Awards for mystery works published in 2008. I'm in Indianapolis for Bouchercon, the World Mystery Convention. Great turn out for the Awards--and a wonderful line-up of nominees.

And, the winners are:

Best Mystery Novel: Where Memories Lie by Deborah Crombie (Wm. Morrow)

Best First Mystery: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson (Knopf)

Best Nonfiction/Critical: African American Mystery Writers: A Historical & Thematic Study by Frankie Y. Bailey (McFarland)

Best Mystery Short Story: "The Night Things Changed" by Dana Cameron (Wolfsbane & Mistletoe, ed. by Harris & Kelner, Penguin)

Sue Feder Memorial Historical Mystery: A Royal Pain by Rhys Bowen (Berkley)

Congratulations to all!
