Congrats to James Sallis on receiving this year's Hammett Prize

The International Crime Writers announced that James Sallis' novel The Killer is Dying is the winner of this year's Hammett Prize for excellence in the field of crime writing. I'm a huge fan of Sallis and a great fan of the book. Honestly, though as someone who read four of the five finalists for this year's prize (including Sara Gran's masterful novel Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead, which I'll be writing more about later) I would have been happy with almost any of them winning.

Congratulations, Jim.
