Anthony Award Nominees 2013
Posted by: Liz Teahan

Bouchercon, the World Mystery Convention, and Booklist are proving the old saying “great minds think alike” to be true: not only has Bouchercon’s announcement of  their 2013 Anthony Award Nominees lined up with Booklist’s Mystery Month, the two also have mysteriously similar taste in literature: many of the Anthony Award nominated titles have earned starred reviews from Booklist.  Read on […]

Agatha Awards
Posted by: Liz Teahan

We’re a little late in recognizing these Agatha Award winners, but, considering it is Mystery Month here at Booklist, we thought it would be a crime—a crime!—to not pay them some attention. Following is a list of the winners published in the calendar year of 2012, awarded by Malice Domestic, Ltd. to books best typifying the works of […]

Nebula Awards
Posted by: Liz Teahan

It may be Mystery Month, but our May 15 issue, Spotlight on SF/Fantasy, proves we have more than crime on our minds. And, in a case of cosmic good timing, The Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, Inc. announced the winners of the 2012 Nebula Awards for outstanding sf/fantasy at their annual banquet this past […]

I like to think that the Mystery Writers of America planned to announce the winners of this year’s Edgar Awards to coincide to Booklist‘s Mystery Month celebration (surely it’s not the other way around).  Here are the winners in each category with links to Booklist reviews where available. BEST NOVEL Live by Night, by Dennis Lehane BEST FIRST […]

Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title
Posted by: Sarah Hunter

It’s Friday afternoon, the perfect time for looking at  cat pictures, discussing weekend plans, and eating doughnuts for lunch while counting down the minutes until quitting time. You’ve got a while until you can skedaddle, though, so how about spending the  next 5-10 minutes chuckling over the winner of this year’s Diagram Prize for Oddest […]

Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalists
Posted by: Sarah Hunter

L.A. is where it isn’t 10 degrees, right? In case you haven’t guessed, we’ve passed the happily tramping-through-the-snow phase in Chicago’s winter to the point where any place warmer than the temperature at which moisture from your breath freezes your scarf to your glasses starts to look mighty appealing. The mythical land of “Los Angeles” […]

Youth Media Awards

Well, that was a whirlwind hour, and I only say that because I was not in Seattle but here in Chicago, frantically trying to keep up with the rapid-fire Youth Media Awards announcements on our Facebook page (check out all the covers!). I’m sure for real-life attendees of yesterday’s announcements, the presentation was full of […]

Edgar Award Nominees
Posted by: Sarah Hunter

Let’s suspend our disbelief for a brief moment and imagine that Edgar Allan Poe, now 204 years old, were still alive. Perhaps he’s revising his latest rewrite, “The Purloined Email.” Maybe he’s picking up a book to read, no doubt assisted by his scientifically advanced cyborg eyes (204 years is a long time, people). Is […]
