message 1: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl FYI here is a list of the Edgar winners for fiction.

http://www.powells.com/prizes/edgar.html

Some of the books voted in above appear to be ineligible....


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) MOST of the recent additions to the list are ineligible!


message 3: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Not surprising.


message 4: by Annie (last edited Mar 13, 2010 09:12AM) (new)

Annie Hope the Weight of Silence wins an award for 2010!!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Removed, for not being an Edgar Award winner in any category according to the searchable database at http://www.theedgars.com/edgarsDB/ind... :

The Quiet Game


message 6: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Removed a bunch of classics and science fiction. If you aren't sure whether it won an actual Edgar Award, check BEFORE you add it to the list. The Edgar Awards are for mysteries and crime-related non-fiction.


message 7: by Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (last edited Jul 02, 2012 02:22AM) (new)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Also removed, for not being Edgar Award winners in any category according to the searchable database at http://www.theedgars.com/edgarsDB/ind...

The Godfather
Briarpatch
Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors


message 8: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Removed for not being an Edgar winner:

The Other Side

The Godfather
[book:Briarpatch|460..."


Apparently the book is in the database as Briar Patch. It was the winner for Best Novel in 1985


message 10: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell I have now voted for all of the Edgars which won for Best Novel. There were a surprising number of these not already on this list. There were 66 winners. And this list has 105 books. It is possible that some of these books won in other categories. If not I will remove them. I would suggest that this list only be for Best Novel - it would make it easier to maintain.


message 11: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell I went ahead and added Edgar Award Winners for Best First Novel, feel free to vote on that list - it should be complete.
