This morning Dundurn Press was pleased to learn that three of its crime writers were shortlisted for this year’s Arthur Ellis Awards, further concretizing its reputation for producing stellar Canadian crime and mystery writing and publishing groundbreaking new authors. The shortlist was announced yesterday evening in events across the country.

Presto Variations, by former Toronto crime reporter Lee Lamothe, is shortlisted for Best Novel. The novel is the third in the critically acclaimed Ray Tate and Djuna Brown Mystery series.

Almost Criminal, the debut novel by Vancouverite E.R. Brown, is shortlisted for Best First Novel. The debut has already been nominated in the same category for the Edgar Awards.

And finally, Sam Wiebe was shortlisted for Best Short Story for “The Third Echo.” His highly anticipated debut novel, Last of the Independents ─ which won the 2012 Unhanged Arthur Award ─ is slated for release in August 2014.

Congratulations to all the nominees! The Arthur Ellis Awards are present annually by the Crime Writers of Canada. Winners will be announced at the Arthur Ellis Awards gala dinner on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at the Arts & Letters Club in Toronto.
