2012 Anthony Award Nominations

Anthony Award nominations peeked their head out the other day. It is a good mix of old guard and fresh young faces. Especially happy to see the awards limited to five this year. I know in the past other awards have been given, but I like the look of the Big Five. Classy. Award will be given at the 2012 Bouchercon in Cleveland Ohio. Congratulations to all of the nominees.
