Awards, awards, awards 

The Giller Prize shortlist is announced, and except for one surprise, John Gould, it's a pretty familiar list. Supposedly the thing they have in common is that they all have endings. So why didn't any crime fiction make the list?

Speaking of, The CWA has announced the shortlist for the Debut Daggers. So far, several of the previous winners (Joolz Denby, Caroline Carver, Edward Wright) and a runner up (Edwin Thomas) have parlayed their success into book deals. I read 3 of the 4 listed and they were excellent debut novels. Should be interesting to see who wins this year and whether I'll be seeing the book in stores in a couple of years from now...
