Dear %%First Name%%,
Our Weekly Special gives you a chance to pick up a thriller from a popular author with savings of 20%. In This Week's Special a high-level Russian defector may not turn out to be quite the godsend that the British government thinks he is.
Just a reminder that the MLB News for December-January is available on the website. You can view it in a browser or print it out.
The Mystery Writers of America have announced their nominees for the 2009 Edgar Allan Poe Awards for the best mystery fiction published in 2008. You'll find all the 2009 Edgar Nominees in the categories of Best Novel, Best Paperback Original and Best First Novel as well as the nominees for the Mary Higgins Clark award on our site.
The Edgars are a great way to find interesting new authors and we invite you to take a look at the nominees and order a few titles to broaden your mystery reading list.
The winners will be announced at the MWA Edgar dinner on April 30, 2009.
This has absolutely nothing to do with mystery but we really couldn't let the moment pass without some mention that the Pittsburgh Steelers will be playing on Sunday, February 1 at 6 pm. Yikes, that's the Super Bowl!
Our apologies to any of the teams we beat on the way. I hope you'll excuse our little bit of gloating. Also, a special message to those of who are rooting for the Cardinals: Remember, it's an honor just to play in the Super Bowl.
Just a trickle of New Arrivals as we await the February books which will start coming in at the end of the month. We've got new titles by Louise Penny, Jack Higgins, Bernard Cornwell and others.
See New Arrivals for the complete list.
Mystery Scene magazine has a special offer for a free, sample copy. Naturally, since we write a column for them we think they're the best mystery magazine around but you can judge for yourself by getting a sample.
Here's what you can find at www.mysterylovers.com:
We have a very special evening coming up in February with author T.C. Boyle and we wanted to give our online subscribers a head start on the tickets.
Friday, February 13 T.C. Boyle will give a talk and signing of his new book, The Women, at the Oakmont Carnegie Library at 7 pm. Boyle, the author of ten novels including Road to Wellville and The Inner Circle, is a noted speaker and his subject will be Frank Lloyd Wright. The Women tells the story of Wright's tempestuous life through the perspective of the four women in his life: his three wives and his mistress.
Tickets for T.C. Boyle's talk and signing are $31 and include a copy of the book, The Women. Companion tickets, which do not include the book, are $9 and are only available when purchasing regular tickets.
Best wishes for the new year .
Richard, Mary Alice and the MLB Staff
