This week the Mystery Writers of America will announce the nominations for this year’s Edgar Awards, the Oscars of the crime fiction world. This weekend, I had the pleasure of joining the board of MWA. I took the opportunity to ask incoming, outgoing, and recurring members of the Board to recognize the works they would most like to see nominated for an Edgar Award this year. What do you think? What novels, debuts, paperback originals, short stories, true crime books, plays, TV shows, or movies would you like to see recognized this year?
Update: The nominations are posted here. I had no new works out in 2009, so for once I can simply celebrate the nominees without a milligram of resentful pouting. Congratulations!
