Bouchercon announced the finalists for the 2020 Anthony Awards yesterday, and I was thrilled to learn that Malice Domestic 14: Mystery Most Edible (Wildside Press) is one of the five contenders in the Best Anthology/Collection category!
“Dining Out,” my tale of a bent restaurant reviewer, is one of the 36 crime stories in the collection. As the title, Mystery Most Edible, suggests, each story revolves around food in some way. And there aren’t any recipes!
The prestigious Anthony Awards are named after Anthony Boucher (1911-1968), an American critic, editor, and one of the founders of the Mystery Writers of America. The awards are presented every year at the Bouchercon World Mystery Convention. This year, voting for the Anthonys will take place at the 2020 Virtual Bouchercon, Oct. 16-17. The awards will be presented as part of an online ceremony on Oct. 17.
