The Strand Magazine just announced its Critics Awards… and they’ve tapped MysteriousPress.com publisher and Mysterious Bookshop owner Otto Penzler for a Lifetime Achievement Award!
More, from the press release:
For over four decades Penzler stood as a giant in the crime publishing genre—he founded Mysterious Press in 1975 and has published authors such as Nelson DeMille, Elmore Leonard, Patricia Highsmith, Eric Ambler, and scores of other bestselling authors. He’s also edited dozens of mystery themed anthologies which have included original works by Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Ed McBain, and J.A. Jance. And last but not least, he’s the proprietor of the legendary Mysterious Bookshop in New York City.
“I have been at every award ceremony since THE STRAND MAGAZINE began to honor the stars of the mystery world and have celebrated with those who received these prestigious prizes,” says Penzler. “In all humility, I was stunned to join their ranks and my heart swells with joy and pride.”
Congrats to our fearless leader!
