Everyone a winner

Sunday, 17 October 2010 14:42 Bouchercon in San Francisco has been amazing. I am already looking forward to next year in St. Louis.
 
We've already posted the Anthony winners (see below) and here are the other well-deserved honors. I still believe that every author who is nominated is already a winner.

Congratulations to all.
