Anthony Award Nominations 2018!

It's that time of year! The Anthony Award ballots are out and Bouchercon alums and attendees are now scrambling to put together their crime fiction nominations. To make things easier, I've compiled a list of eligible novels, stories and collections. This is by no means an exhaustive list- I'd say that Jay Stringer over at Do Some Damage has the most comprehensive list going at the moment- but rather these are the titles that have been somewhere on my radar over the past year. Happy nominating, happy voting and most importantly, happy reading!
