The ICFA is delighted to announce a prestigious new annual book prize. The prize will recognise ingenuity, innovation, and scholarship in the academic study of crime fiction and crime writing in its widest sense.
Monographs and edited collections can be nominated by publishers, members of the association, and authors.
There will be one winner who will receive £100 plus a write up from the independent judges which can be used for publicity purposes.
Shortlisted books will also receive comments from the judges which can be used for publicity purposes.
The winner and the shortlisted authors will be announced at our 2019 conference.
The competition is open to any monograph or edited collection, published in 2018, on the academic study of crime fiction and crime writing in its broadest sense.
