Forget the royal wedding news today--it's all about the Edgar Awards! Honoring the best in mystery fiction and nonfiction produced the previous year, the Edgars began in 1954 and are named in honor of Edgar Allan Poe. Here are the winners, as announced last night at the Mystery Writers of America banquet (sorry the hats weren't as good as those worn at Westminster Abbey, so we'll just stick to announcing the books):
Best Short Story: "The Scent of Lilacs" "“ Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine by Doug Allyn
Grand Master Award: Sara Paretsky
