Name that award!
ROSEMARY: Okay the movies have the Oscars, the Golden Globes, the Independent Spirit Awards, and the lesser known Razzies (awarded to titanically bad films.) We've got Grammys, Tonys, Emmys and probably more female-sounding awards I've never heard of. And the mystery community has no shortage of honors it bestows. Bouchercon has the Anthony, MWA has the Edgar and Malice Domestic has the Agatha. There are Barrys, Davids, Macavitys, Loveys, Leftys, Watsons, Dilys Winns, Nero Wolfes and for all I know the Moes, the Larrys and the Curlys. Time to put your thinking caps on - if you were coming up with an award for an accomplishment in the mystery community - or not - what would it be called and what would it be for? Best answer wins a copy of Slugfest which comes out next Tuesday!!
