First awarded in 1946 by The Mystery Writers of America, the Edgars honor achievement in mystery and crime writing in fiction, non-fiction, movies, television, and motion pictures. They are named after the “father of all mystery writing”, Edgar Allan Poe, who once said, “I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.” Here’s a photo of my daughter’s mysterious kitty-cat, “Mr. Boo”.
