The Macavity Award Nominees & Practical Cats

Most awards are named after boring ol' humans. I know, snoozefest, right?

Well, I'm delighted to tell you that The Macavity Award brings something new to the table. This award is named after a cat, the "mystery cat" of T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats to be exact.

Naming an award after a cat is understandable; naming an award after a mysterious, yet practical cat is really the only way to go.

The Macmillan Macavity Award-nominated titles for 2011 are as follows:

Best Mystery Novel
BURY YOUR DEAD by Louise Penny*

Best First Mystery Novel
THE DAMAGE DONE by Hilary Davidson
ROGUE ISLAND by Bruce DeSilva
THE POACHER'S SON by Paul Doiron

Sue Feder Memorial Historical Mystery
CITY OF DRAGONS by Kelli Stanley**
