Five Decembers by James Kestral
On April 28, the Mystery Writers of America announced the winners of the 76th annual Edgar Awards in New York City. The awards, the Edgars, honor the best in mystery fiction, non-fiction, television, film, and theatre published or produced in the previous year.
One of the goals of this blog is to help mystery readers find different writers they may want to read. This week, the Mystery Writers of America announced their 2022 awards and the nominees for the 2022 Edgar Allan Poe Awards. The Edgar award is one of the highest awards given for the best in mystery fiction, non-fiction, and television.
If you are like me, first, I hope you recover. Second, following the nominees for awards like these help us discover the cream of the crop in the mystery field. And I always like seeing who the debut authors are, so I can learn what authors I should be on the lookout for. They also introduce us to different genres in mystery we may want to try.

The board of the Mystery Writers of America also announced their 2022 Grand Master, and the winners of the Raven and The Ellery Queen awards, The Raven Award recognizes outstanding achievement in the mystery field outside creative writing. The Ellery Queen Award, established in 1983, honors outstanding writing teams and people in the mystery-publishing business. I’ve posted the link here.
Congratulations to the recipients. These are well-deserved honors for all the work they have done.
