A vote to the death: crime writers in morgue naming contest
Ten crime writers are competing for the honor of having a new morgue at Dundee University named after them, reports BBC Scotland. Now that’s what I call a lasting tribute. The university needs another £1 million to build the morgue, so some bright spark came up with a public vote.
Authors taking part in the “Million for a Morgue” campaign are: Tess Gerritsen, Kathy Reichs, Lee Child, Harlan Coben, Mark Billingham, Jeffrey Deaver, Jeff Lindsay, Stuart MacBride, Peter James and Val McDermid.
