Ben Winters’ THE LAST POLICEMAN nominated for an Edgar!

23 January, 2013

We wer179339642e so thrilled to know that the Mystery Writers of America have nominated the first in a projected trilogy by Ben H. Winters for a prestigious Edgar Allen Poe Award for 2012 in the Paperback Original category (for a novel published in 2012). Quirk Books is Mr. Winters’ adult fiction publisher, and together, they have struck gold in developing a vision for a hark, dare we say quirky, pre-apocalyptic world in which a young policeman tries to solve crimes when no one much cares; after all, the world is coming to an end, so what’s a murder or two? The sequel to THE LAST POLICEMAN will be published by Quirk in June, 2013.

This is the second nomination for the talented author whose middle grade novel, THE SECRET LIFE OF MS. FINKELMAN, was nominated previously.
