Nancy Springer has already received an Edgar nomination--the Enola series' second! Nancy's fourth!!--for 2009 THE CASE OF THE CRYPTIC CRINOLINE, Springer's fifth title to feature Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes' brilliant young sister Enola. Late last week, CRYPTIC CRINOLINE was similarly honored with an Agatha Award nomination. We're rooting for you, Nancy!

In other award news, Strand magazine (which has the distinction of having first published over fifty of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories--a minor theme here, perhaps?) announced its Critic Awards nominees, including the much-ballyhooed, Man Booker shortlisted LITTLE STRANGER, by Sarah Waters. Great news for great writers--congrats to Springer and Waters both!!
