Congratulations! You richly deserve this.

I didn't have a vote, but my neighbor did, and she voted for Sarah Weinman's site, mostly because Sarah Weinman rarely wears pants.


Yes, yes, yes!!!

Sometimes people do the right thing.

Well deserved indeed! Congrats David...


Way to go! Congrats!

I just clicked on the link and perused the nominees in all categories. The list of nominees is superb, which I suppose is another way of saying I share the Anthony committee's opinion of these works.

But I happily confess, the nomination that gives me the greatest pleasure is David's Crime Fiction Dossier.

Leaving aside the matter of the nomination for the CFD, they have a fine slate of nominees there. Much better than the Edgars, I think. Granted, it's mostly a popularity contest. But there are still some damn good books, and only a few stinkers.


What's wrong with a popularity contest in this situation? It just shows that fans make some pretty good choices.I know what I like, and I like to see my favorites recognized. (And yes, David, I did nominate you.)

Thanks for your vote, Cheryl! I'm honored.

Congrats. It is so wonderful. I am so glad for you.
