Um concurso que celebra “mistérios tradicionais” que leva o nome de Agatha… e os vencedores da versão 2013 foram anunciados em 05.05.2014:
Two Washington-area writers who frequently review for Book World won prizes at this weekend’s Agatha Awards ceremony in Bethesda, Md.
Art Taylor won the short story prize for “The Care and Feeding of Houseplants.” His tale about a deadly case of adultery was originally published in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine.
Daniel Stashower won the nonfiction prize for “The Hour of Peril: The Secret Plot to Murder Lincoln Before the Civil War” (Minotaur). A full-time writer who lives in Bethesda, Md., Stashower barely had time to relax from winning the nonfiction prize at the Edgar Awards given by the Mystery Writers of America two days earlier in New York.
The Agatha Awards, named for the genre’s legendary practitioner, Agatha Christie, are sponsored by Malice Domestic, a nonprofit organization dedicated to celebrating traditional mysteries. The group’s Web site defines these books as “mysteries which contain no explicit sex or excessive gore or violence.”
