The Rap Sheet Gets a Nod

Congratulations to our own J. Kingston Pierce and The Rap Sheet for receiving a nomination for an Anthony Award for Best Web site.

The Rap Sheet started life nearly a decade ago as January Magazine’s crime fiction newsletter under January senior editor Pierce’s direct control and influence. Two years ago, we opted to spin TRS completely free from January, and though some of our regular contributors -- myself and Pierce included -- write for both publications, The Rap Sheet is an independent entity. That being the case, we couldn’t be more pleased with this nomination. Everyone at January is very proud to see the Sheet recognized in this way.

The Anthony Awards rank among crime fiction’s highest. The winners are selected by attendees at the annual Bouchercon World Mystery Convention, which is also where the awards are presented. This year, the convention will be held in Baltimore, from October 9th to 12th.

To see the complete Anthony shortlist, as well as some of Pierce’s thoughts on the nomination, the Rap Sheet piece is here.
