Original and Laudable

I evidently missed mentioning a recent announcement of the various books and authors nominated for this year’s Scribe Awards, sponsored as usual by the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers. There are a half-dozen categories of prizes (you will find the complete list here), but for Rap Sheet readers, the most interesting might be those novels featured under the Original General heading. They are:
Don Pendleton’s The Executioner: Fatal Prescription,
by Michael A. Black (Gold Eagle)
The Will to Kill,
by Mickey Spillane and Max Allan Collins (Titan)
Robert B. Parker’s The Hangman’s Sonnet,
by Reed Farrel Coleman (Putnam)
Winners of all the 2018 Scribe Awards will be declared during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International, July 19-22.

(Hat tip to Max Allan Collins.)
