Of “Death” and “Daggers”
Posted by: Courtney Jones

death-of-a-gunfighterI was tipped off  about the Wild West History Association’s “Best Western of 2008″ winner, Death of a Gunfighter: The Quest for Jack Slade, the West’s Most Elusive Legend (2008), literally one hour after the announcement yesterday afternoon.  Author Dan Rottenberg was in attendance at the ceremony in San Antonio, where he received a plaque and an unspecified cash prize. 

Moving on from guns… to shivs: The Crime Writers’ Association has awarded the International Dagger award to The Chalk Circle Man, by Fred Vargas,  and Collin Cotterill (The Merry Misogynist, 2009) won the Dagger in the Library Award. The award is given to a living author whose body of work is currently being enjoyed by library patrons across the UK.
