Derringer takes aim at Apple for the Creature


The Short Mystery Fiction Society has announced the finalists for the 2013 Derringer Awards for mystery short fiction, and the “Best Novelette” category includes two stories from AN APPLE FOR THE CREATURE, edited by our clients Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner.  The nominated stories are Iphigenia in Aulis by Mike Carey, and “Pirate Dave and the Captain’s Ghost” by Toni L. P. Kelner.  So our congratulations to Mike and Charlaine for their nominations, and we’ll aim two barrels of our Derringer at Toni L. P. Kelner for both the anthology editing and her own great fiction.  Society members will be voting on the awards over the next few weeks, with winners to be announced at month’s end.
