Edgar Award Winners Announced

eap.jpgThe Mystery Writers of America announced the Edgar Award winners last night. The annual prize is named after Edgar Allan Poe, awarded to the best authors in the mystery genre since 1945.

Founding MWA member Dorothy B. Hughes once said this about the formation of the Edgar Awards: “It was yet another step in dignifying the mystery writer, in enhancing his work, and let’s face [it] crass materialism … anything that enhances the author and his work means more money in his pocket.”

Follow this link for the complete list, but here are a few of the winners: Best Novel: “Blue Heaven” by C.J. Box; Best Paperback Original: “China Lake” by Meg Gardiner; Best Young Adult: “Paper Towns” by John Green and Best Critical/Biographical: “Edgar Allan Poe: An Illustrated Companion to His Tell-Tale Stories” by Dr. Harry Lee Poe
