MrT said: By the way, a few years ago I heard a very sensible comment regarding the MWA's Grand Master awards, and it was this: what business does the MWA have bestowing such an honor on P.D. James when they haven't recognized Donald Hamilton? This strikes me as obvious neglect. I would say the same about Richard Prather. These guys are alive and their contributions are legendary.


i'm not familiar with prather, so i checked him out on amazon.com. i haven't gone wrong so far on your recommendations in authors, so i trust that prather is a good author.

but those E-read book covers for a lot of his in-print shell scott novels, like slab happy, the cockeyed corpse, and dagger of flesh are horrible.
