Anthony Nominations 2011

The Hungry Detective was unable to attend last year's Bouchercon in San Francisco. I have looked forward to the St Louis Con with some anticipation. There was the hope that being in the middle west of these United States I would find some way to attend. Alas it not to be, and neither does it seem the 2012 and 2013 editions. Perhaps surprising to me is that while my interest in Crime Fiction has waned over the last year or so, my interest in attending the year B'Con remains pretty high. Maybe Albany, maybe.

Anyway Anthony Nominations are out.... and about.
