I wonder how many cozy mystery readers would be able to answer the "How was your weekend?" question with "Fantastic!" "Fabulous!" "Wonderful!" "Exciting!" "Interesting!" "Phenomenal!" "Cozy!"??? If you were lucky enough to have been in the Washington, D.C. area (Arlington, VA)… at the Marriott Crystal Gateway April 25-27 (2008)… then you probably would be able to answer that question with just such words.
The Malice Domestic 2008 took place last weekend, and, for those of you who don’t know… it is "the cozy mystery book" convention of the year. All sorts of cozy mystery authors, publishers, and readers attend this particular convention, at which the yearly Agatha Awards are chosen. (Remember… the 2008 convention gave out awards for the 2007 year. I know that it’s confusing, but I have posted the winners as the 2007 winners, since that is the year their works were published, even though they had to wait until 2008 to receive the awards.)I have included the winners and nominees on my Agatha Awards pages… divided into the different categories:
I think that you will recognize a lot of the names!
