Anthony Award Nominees

The Anthony Award Nominations were just announced. The Anthony Awards are given each year at Bouchercon, the award and conference named for Anthony Boucher. Nominees are suggested by fans and winners are chosen by a vote of registered convention attendees.

There are some wonderful authors on this list, as well as some I know as very nice people. Congratulations to all of the nominees!
