“The Edgar Awards, or “Edgars,” as they are commonly known, are named after MWA’s patron saint Edgar Allan Poe and are presented to authors of distinguished work in various categories.”
Re the technical disaster I was plagued with last week (both the computer and printer decided to quit) which prevented the Lyrical Pens post, I can now claim success. A new printer, three desktop computers (two were dead on arrival), and a two-hour visit from Geek Squad later has me up and running…I hope for a very long time.
I have to say, honestly, I was kind of grateful I didn’t have a computer available to me so I could play solitaire for hours on end (I’m guilty). I really did spend the last week slowly reading the 26 tributes to classic novels, short stories, and poems in the CLASSICS PIECES RETOLD anthology.
What a treat.
This anthology is one of the Mobile Writers Guild best productions. I found the variety of author voices awesome and heartily recommend the pieces to you.
You can order your own copies through The Haunted Book Shop https://www.thehauntedbookshopmobile.com/contact-us , a Mobile indie bookshop, or from your favorite book seller.
