The Agatha Awards
The Agatha Awards honor the traditional mystery, stories best exemplified by the work of Agatha Christie. The genre is loosely defined as mysteries that contain no explicit material or excessive violence. The Agathas are given each year during Malice Domestic, an annual fan convention that takes place in the metropolitan D.C. area to celebrate such mysteries. There are six categories: Best Contemporary Novel, Best Historical Novel, Best First Novel, Best Nonfiction, Best Short Story, and Best Children’s/Young Adult.
