Getting in on the Barrys

Here I was just thinking that organizers of this year’s Macavity Awards are cutting it rather close, asking eligible voters to choose their favorite 2021 books by August 15.

Now, though, comes George Easter, editor of Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine, letting us all know that we can have a hand in selecting the winners of his 2022 Barry Awards. But we must act within an even tighter time frame, by this coming Monday, August 1!

A new post in the DP blog recaps the four categories of Barry nominees, and says you can e-mail your selections—“one vote per category”—to george@deadlypleasures.com. “The easiest way to do this,” Easter writes, “is to cut and paste the … list into an e-mail and put an ‘x’ or a double ‘xx’ next to your four choices.” As with the Macavitys, the Barry Award winners will be announced during this September’s Bouchercon, to be held in Minneapolis.

I’ve already submitted my four choices. Will you be next?
