Pronzini Has a Lock on Hoch

Kevin R. Tipple brings us the news that 69-year-old California novelist Bill Pronzini--creator of the long-running Nameless Detective series--is this year’s recipient of the Edward D. Hoch Memorial Golden Derringer Award, given out by the Short Mystery Fiction Society. This commendation is of course named after prolific short-story writer Hoch, who died back in 2008.
