Laura Lippman ties with Megan Abbott for the Strand Magazine’s Critics Award for Best Novel (Comments)

“As one of Megan Abbott’s biggest fans, I was happily, hopefully expecting her to take the Strand Award for best novel of 2014. We had joked about it much of the day, via Twitter, while one of our mutual friends staunchly predicted a tie. When it actually happened, I truly wondered if it were a dream. Crime fiction is so varied today, wonderfully so, that a tie reflects how hard it is to say what best represents the genre. Sharing a award with a friend I consider one of the shining lights of crime fiction was truly special.”

Megan Abbott ties with Laura Lippman for the Strand Magazine’s Critics Award for Best Novel (Comments)
“I couldn’t be more honored and thrilled to be a part of this grand crime fiction tradition. And to share this award with the extraordinary Laura Lippman, whose work is a constant inspiration, makes it all the sweeter. Thank you!”

Elizabeth Little wins the Strand Critics Award for Best First Novel (Comments)
“I wouldn’t be a mystery writer if I weren’t also an avid and ardent mystery reader, so it was almost unbearably thrilling to win an award presented by The Strand, which means so much to me, and to the mystery community at large, and to share a stage with Megan Abbott and Laura Lippman, two writers I admire to such an extent that I fear I probably acted a bit silly around them. It was a very, very special night for me—and a real honor.”
