We're a day late with the news (gee, we were out yesterday buying books), but super excited: Dave Zeltserman's novelette "Julius Katz," already in print in the Sept/Oct 2009 issue of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, just received a Derringer Award in short fiction. Hurrah! For more, see Zeltserman's blog, http://smallcrimes-novel.blogspot.com, and here's yesterday's announcement from the Short Mystery Fiction Society, which gives the award.
Zeltersman's spring 2010 release, KILLER, hit the stores yesterday, too, the third in his trilogy of "what happens when a career criminal gets out of prison?" If you like it dark, grab a copy. Here's our review from earlier this winter.
PS: Yes, there's another Zeltserman book coming out in the fall, too!! More on that later.
