Books to Die For gets an Edgar nomination

Books to Die For US

And how exciting is that? The anthology has been nominated for a 2013 Edgar Award in the category Best Critical/Biographical Book. Congratulations to editors John Connolly and Declan Burke, whose passion for the project has resulted in such a sterling anthology. I’m delighted that their hard work has been recognized by the Mystery Writers of America with this nomination.

And I’m jazzed to be even a small part of the project. Thanks, guys, for including my essay on Sue Grafton’s A is for Alibi in the anthology.

And congratulations to all this year’s nominees. Here’s the complete rundown.

Speaking of Books to Die For…

Yesterday I mentioned Books to Die For, the new anthology of personal essays — crime writers writing about our favorite crime novels. Today the editors have posted a video I made, explaining why I wrote my essay on Sue Grafton’s A is for Alibi.

And yeah, dig that head-banging rock music.
