With all the chaos of the last several months, it can be easy to forget that summer is here, and with it comes awards nomination season. We are thrilled to announce that Michael Pool’s short story, “Weathering the Storm,” which introduced the world to our series detective Riley Reeves, is a finalist for the Shamus Award for Best Private Investigator Short Story!
The story was published in The Eyes of Texas: Private Eyes From The Panhandle To The Piney Woods, an anthology of Texas-set detective stories edited by Michael Bracken and published by our friends at Down and Out Books. The Eyes of Texas has received some love of its own, in the form of an Anthony Award nomination for Best Anthology or Collection. Congrats to all the nominees for both awards!
