Crimespree Magazine is opening the door to nominations for this year’s Crimespree Awards. You are invited to choose as many as five mystery/crime novels in each of three categories:
• Favorite Book of the Year
• Favorite First Book of the Year
• Best Book in an Ongoing Series
All books must have been published in 2009.
Send your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org (deadline is 1st August 2010). Winners will be announced during opening night ceremonies at Bouchercon World Mystery Convention in San Francisco (October 14-17).
Now it's totally up to you, but if you want to you could always mention a certain 'Joe Hunter' fellow in your list of picks. Dead Men's Dust was a first book, and both DMD and Judgement and Wrath were both published in 2009, and they're both part of a series.
A hat tip to The Rap Sheet for bringing me the news.
