From Oct. 13 to Oct. 20, we're celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Dilys Award by reviewing a batch of award winners -- this is given by IMBA, the Independent Mystery Booksellers Assocation, each year to the book that the members have most enjoyed selling. We're especially honoring S.J. Rozan's book Ghost Hero this year, and we'll be giving away two signed copies of the book at our event for Archer Mayor on Oct. 20.
