Edgar Nominees

Just a couple days ago I was writing only semi-good things about John Green's Paper Towns which I just finished, and today I hear from his blog that it's been nominated for an Edgar Award. The Edgars are given by the Mystery Writers of America for (not surprisingly) good mystery writing. I'm chagrined that I had to wait for an author to announce his own nomination rather than being on top of this myself, but whatever. We can't win them all, and it's still fresh news.

Here are the nominees—and it's a good looking bunch:
Bog Child, Siobhan Dowd
The Big Splash, Jack D. Ferraiolo
Paper Towns, John Green
Getting the Girl, Susan Juby
Torn to Pieces, Margot McDonnell
