Shortlists for some 2010 CWA Dagger Awards Announced

Mystery Book Awards: The Edgars, The Agathas, The Anthonys, and many more.

The Crime Writers' Association (CWA) announced yesterday the shortlists for several of its prestigious Dagger Awards.

Included in the announcement were nominees for the CWA International Dagger (for novels translated into English from their native language), the CWA Gold Dagger for Non-Fiction, the CWA Dagger in the Library (for authors judged on their body of work), the CWA Short Story Dagger, and the CWA Debut Dagger (a competition for writers who have yet to have their books published commercially).

The winners will be announced on Friday, July 23rd, during the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival.

Shortlists for the CWA New Blood Dagger, the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger, and the Gold Dagger will be announced later; these winners will be announced during the fall at the Crime Thriller Awards ceremony.
