Distinctive Works, Singular Groupings

The British crime-fiction Web site Dead Good is looking for help in selecting candidates to complete for its 2018 Dead Good Reader Awards. “Simply nominate your favorite books and authors from the past year …,” Dead Good managers explain, “and the most popular will form the shortlists and go to a public vote.”

There are half a dozen classifications of contenders for 2018, all completely different from last year’s:

• The Holmes and Watson Award for Best Detective Duo
• The Whodunnit Award for the Book That Keeps You Guessing
• The Cabot Cove Award for Best Small-Town Mystery
• The Wringer Award for the Character Who’s Been Put Through It All
• The House of Horrors Award for Most Dysfunctional Family
• The Dead Good Recommends Award for Most Recommended Book

Simply click here to enter your suggestions in any or all of these categories. The Dead Good nominating process is scheduled to close on Friday, May 21. People proposing contenders will reportedly have a chance to score “£200 worth of crime books and DVDs!”

Winners are to be announced during the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate, England, July 19-22.
