Last night was the Mystery Writers of America dinner at which the 2007 Edgar Award winners were announced. In January, in a post titled Your Merits Should be Publicly Recognized, I listed six categories containing seven entries which featured Sherlock Holmes (or his friends). Of those, I am happy to inform you that two were presented with Edgars:

Best Critical / Biographical
The Science of Sherlock Holmes: From Baskerville Hall to the Valley of Fear, The Real Forensics Behind the Great Detective's Greatest Cases by E.J. Wagner

Best Play
"Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure" by Steven Dietz (Arizona Theater Company)

Congratulations to Ms. Wagner and Mr. Dietz!
