A Hardluck Edgar Congrats

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.

Read SOUL PATCH but not the others.

Which was something i really noticed this year with the nominations. Almost all of them I had not read and had not heard of before they were announced. And here I thought I was hip to what was/is out there.
