Bryant & May Nominated For ‘Best Detective Duo’!
Well, this is nice. The lovely peeps at the Dead Good Reader Awards have nominated my detectogenarians Bryant & May for the Best Detective Duo Award, alongside Elly Griffiths for her characters Ruth Galloway and Harry Nelson, Tess Gerritsen’s Rizzoli and Isles, Sarah Hilary’s Marnie Rome and Noah Jake, Syd Moore’s Rosie Strange and Sam Stone, and P J Tracy’s Gino and Magozzi.
You can view the full list of nominations, and cast your vote here.
Now, I want to point out that this is a scrupulously fair-minded non-partisan site, and just because you visited it and Barry Forshaw in Crime Time this week described Hall of Mirrors as ‘one of the most sheerly diverting outings yet for his eccentric detective duo’, it doesn’t mean you have to vote for me. You’re more than welcome to vote for one of the other passably entertaining authors on the list, and while I’ll never forget the snub I certainly won’t judge you, or break into your house late at night and rearrange your furniture.
Awards mean nothing, especially when there’s no prize money attached, but it’s nice to thrash your worthless opponents into a pulp and walk away cackling to yourself. Just remember that if you vote for anyone else I won’t mind. It’s just that from this moment on you’re dead to me.
As you were.
