Photos from the 2015 Edgar Awards banquet

James Ellroy
The Edgar Awards, given by the Mystery Writers of America, are coming up April 28, 2016, and this year two friends and associates of Detectives Beyond Borders' are up for awards: Adrian McKinty, up for Best Paperback Original Novel for Gun Street Girl, and Duane Swierczynski, nominated in the best novel category for Canary.

Ian Rankin, Stephen King,
Karin Slaughter, Stuart Neville
I'll be there taking pictures, schmoozing, and maybe asking a question or two of 2016 MWA Grand Master Walter Mosely.  In the meantime, some photos I took at the 2015 Edgars.

My favorite: the Parestsky shot! Super!

Thanks. I took a few other shots in which Paretsky is a more corporeal presence.

I like the spectral trope -- the author invisible except as a mere shadow in the text.

I worked my way to that shadow picture with a similar photo I took of Christa Faust I took at a convention. I'll post it if I can't find the damned thing.

As I am a night-crawling creature influenced by spectral suggestions, you now have me eager to read some things by both Paretsky and Faust, and then I will have to post some reactions at Detectives on the Shelves. Onward into the crimes and shadows!

I like that Ellroy over the typewriter.

Tim: I would recommend Christa's Choke Hold especially.

Seana: That Ellroy shot is a detail from a slide that the organizers project on big screens when the newly inducted MWA grand masters speak.
