"Plague of Zombies" nominated for an Edgar!

Congratulations to Diana Gabaldon, whose novella, "Lord John and the Plague of Zombies", has just been nominated for an Edgar award by the Mystery Writers of America.

You can see the full list of Edgar award nominees here.  The winners will be announced on April 26.

Thanks to Lynne Perednia on Compuserve for letting us know about this.  (Even Diana didn't know until Lynne posted it on the forum this morning.)

If you've been waiting for an excuse to read "Plague of Zombies", this seems like a good opportunity to check it out for yourself.  For more information about the story, look here.  I really enjoyed it (and I'm definitely not a fan of zombie or horror stories normally!) and I think the rest of you will, too.

There's a thread on Compuserve here if you want to send congratulations or good luck messages to Diana directly.
