Time to Don Your Critic’s Hat

Word is that nomination forms for the 2018 Anthony Awards have been dispatched via e-mail. Everyone who attended Bouchercon 2017 in Toronto, Ontario, or is registered to participate in this year’s Bouchercon in St. Petersburg, Florida, is eligible to suggest books and other works worthy of special recognition. In addition to the usual categories—Best Novel, Best First Novel, Best Critical/Non-fiction Book, etc.—St. Petersburg organizing committee members have added three others: Best Short Story Anthology, Best Online Content, and the Bill Crider Award for Best Novel in a Continuing Series.

Nominations will be accepted through April 30.

“If you registered for Bouchercon 2018 in the last few days,” convention co-chair Erin Mitchell explains in a Facebook post, “you might not have yet received a nomination form. Don’t panic. You’ll receive it soon. Likewise, if you register between now and the end of April, you will receive a nomination form.“

If you haven’t yet signed up for the St. Petersburg Bouchercon, you’ll find all the information you need to do so by clicking here.
