Ellery Queen and Raven Awards
Though the news has been slowly leaking out, the Mystery Writers of America has made their official announcements for these awards, as follows:
The first Raven award goes to
Joan Hansen, who six years ago originated “Men of Mystery” for the
non-profit Literary Guild of Orange County (CA), an all-day gathering
that this year presented 60 authors to an audience of more than 600.
The second Raven award goes to Bonnie Claeson & Joe Gugliemelli, co-owners of the Black
Orchid Bookshop, which has become a major
supporter of established and emerging authors of crime fiction and
non-fiction since it opened in 1994.
The Ellery Queen Award will go to Brian Skupin and Kate Stine, co-publishers of Mystery Scene Magazine.
Congratulations to everyone — the honors are very much deserved.
