Linda Landrigan, editor of Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, receives the Mystery Writers of America Ellery Queen award.
"The Ellery Queen Award was established in 1983 to honor “outstanding writing teams and outstanding people in the mystery-publishing industry.” This year the Board chose to honor Linda Landrigan. Ms. Landrigan came to Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine in 1997 as an associate editor and has been its editor since 2002. Under her leadership, the magazine has not only continued to thrive but has also navigated dramatic changes in the publishing industry—she has overseen the introduction of AHHM in digital formats as well as the creation of a podcast series featuring audio recordings of stories from the magazine as well as interviews with authors."
It's not an easy task to keep a print magazine (now digital also) going in this tough publishing climate. And to top it off, Ms. Landrigan is such a genuinely nice person! Congratulations!
The final installment of the Gladys Mitchell reading group concluded earlier this month. I had a fun experience. I don't have time for a traditional reading group or book club. This offered the chance to hear the impressions of other readers to this classic mystery author without having to physically meet with people.
Our host and guide Jason Half proposes to have another Gladys Mitchell group read in 2019.
