CWA Dagger Award Nomination

My story “Bag Man”, from The Outcast Hours, ed. by Mahvesh Murad and Jared Shurin (Solaris), is on the shortlist for the 2019 Crime Writers Association Short Story Dagger!

The Daggers are huge, and this was a complete surprise! This is my first nomination for a crime fiction award, and a rare nomination for short fiction, so it’s a double hooray! I really don’t expect to win, but it’s lovely just being nominated.

  • Strangers in a Pub by Martin Edwards in Ten Year Stretch, edited by Martin Edwards and Adrian Muller
  • Death Becomes Her by Syd Moore in The Strange Casebook by Syd Moore
  • The Dummies’ Guide to Serial Killing by Danuta Reah in The Dummies’ Guide to Serial Killing and other Fantastic Female Fables
  • I Detest Mozart by Teresa Solana in The First Historic Serial Killers by Teresa Solana
  • Bag Man by Lavie Tidhar in The Outcast Hours, edited by Mahvesh Murad and Jared Shurin
