Extolling Inclusivity

Organizers of the annual Lambda Literary Awards (aka the “Lammys”), which celebrate the best of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer literature, have announced their finalists for the 2024 prizes. There are 26 categories of nominees, including LGBTQ+ Mystery. The half-dozen novels vying for the prize in that division are:

A Calculated Risk, by Cari Hunter (Bold Strokes)
Don’t Forget the Girl, by Rebecca McKanna (Sourcebooks Landmark)
The Good Ones, by Polly Stewart (HarperCollins)
Transitory, by J.M. Redmann (Bold Strokes)
Where the Dead Sleep, by Joshua Moehling (Poisoned Pen Press)

In addition, Sarah James’ witty, 1940s mystery, Last Night at the Hollywood Canteen (Sourcebooks), is among this year’s contenders in the Bisexual Fiction category.

The winners of these commendations will be declared on June 11 during a ceremony at New York City’s Sony Hall.
