I just got word that the 2013 Nero Award Nominees have been picked. The Nero Awards are given to authors who write mystery novels similar to the way Rex Stout wrote his Nero Wolfe mystery books – which are definitely classic mysteries.
The Wolfe Pack is a society of literary people who, simply put, love everything about Nero Wolfe (Rex Stout’s main sleuth – although Archie Goodwin might think he’s the main sleuth!) The Wolfe Pack hosts the Black Orchid Banquet each year, during December – on the first Saturday of that month. It is at this time that the winners is announced.
Here are the 2013 Nero Award Nominees:
Kieran Shields: The Truth of All Things
Loren D. Estleman: Burning Midnight
Chris Knopf: Dead Anyway
Congratulations to all the 2013 Nero Award Nominees!
