I'd like to congratulate the following authors nominated for Edgars who've been connected to Hardluck--either from allowing us to publish their excellent stories, acting as guest editor, or being profiled on our pages:
Ken Bruen--Priest (Best Novel)
Craig McDonald--Head Games (Best First Novel)
Vicki Hendricks--Cruel Poetry (Best PBO)
Reed Farrel Coleman--Soul Patch (Best Novel)
I'd also like to congratulate both MWA for recognizing such an excellent noir novel as Russell Hill's "Robbie's Wife" for a PBO nomination, and Russell Hill for this well-deserved recognition. This is one of the best pure noir novels I've read in years, and it was great to see something this unrelentingly dark nominated.
