RARA-AVIS: The Raymond Chandler Award

From: William Denton ( buff@pobox.com)

H.S. Bhabra, a minor figure on the Canadian literary scene who'd been having trouble writing and was depressed, threw himself off Toronto's Bloor Street Viaduct last week, it seems because of just that. I only mention it because the piece on him in the Globe and Mail mentioned he'd won the Raymond Chandler Award for his first novel. I've never heard of this before, and a search on the web only turns up what seems to be an Italian firm award. Does anyone know anything more about it?
