RARA-AVIS: Shamus Nominations

From: Bludis Jack ( buildsnburns@yahoo.com)

Congrats to Charles Ardai and Hard Case Crime for the nominations of Little Girl Lost and Fade to Blonde. I understand that Max Allen Collins was also nominated for "Best Paperback Original."

Unlike Jim Dougherty, I hope I Jack Bludis wins--but then I, as Jack Bludis, have a personal statke in it.

It is great, however, to be nominated in a category with both Max Allen Collins and with an original in Hard Case Crime.

Super congrats to Charles and Domenic Stansberry. As some of you know I have been pushing Stansberry on this list for a couple of years. The Confession is a terrific book and it deserved the Edgar. It was not, however, eligible for a Shamus--no P.I. or similar character involved, but it was one hell of a read and as noir as a book gets. And yes, Jim, it does mee both yours and my definitions of "Noir."
