The winner of this year’s CWA Short Story Awards was announced at a reception as part of the prestigious Ilkley Literature Festival.
Last year’s winner, Robert Barnard, presented the £1500 prize to Peter Lovesey for his story, Needle Match in the Best British Mysteries IV anthology edited by Maxim Jakubowski and published by Allison & Busby. The judges commented: “Set during the Wimbledon fortnight in 1981, with the Cold War raging, and a Russian tennis player's mysterious death leading to potentially global consequences. Excellent writing, evocative setting.”
Philip Gooden, Chair of the CWA, said: “The CWA is delighted that such a distinguished and long-standing member of the Association has won the short story award for 2007. We're grateful to Ilkley Literature Festival for hosting the event and to the judges for their work, and congratulate Peter Lovesey on this fresh achievement.”
