The Strand Magazine announced the winners of the 2020 Strand Critics Awards on Friday night at a fun Zoom Party which had people joining from varioous places. Andrew Guilli did the introduction and Hank Phillipi Ryan officiated the event. Great fun! It was wonderful to be part of the announcements as it is normally held in New York and I would not have been able to attend. Therefore hosting it on Zoom was a brilliant way to gather us all together.. The Awards recognize excellence in the field of mystery fiction and publishing.
