For the record, there is another writer who won the Edgar three times in three different categories: best first novel, best paperback original, and best critical work. William L. DeAndrea won the three Edgars for KILLED IN THE RATINGS (first novel, 1978); THE HOG MURDER (paperback, 1979); and ENCYCLOPEDIA MYSTERIOSA (critical, 1994).

Would you know who are Edgar winners (plural) who won three Edgars in the same categories? No, it is not off-topic. (hint, hint) Sorry, no prize.
