Congratulations to Scott Mackay on his win last night at the Arthur Ellis Awards! “The Avocado Kid,” published in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, took the prize for Best Short Story. This is Scott’s second win, as he previously won an Arthur Ellis Award for his mystery short story “Last Inning.” Scott is the author of fantastic full length mysteries as well, including the Barry Gilbert series. Cold Comfort (Barry Gilbert #1) was a finalist for the Arthur Ellis Award.
Congratulations again, Scott!
