Waikato Times highlights local author's Edgar nomination

Further to my blog post last week congratulating Wellington-based novelist and TV screenwriter Neil Cross and Hamilton-based short story writer Stephen Ross for their Edgar nominations, it seems that some of the mainstream New Zealand media have started to pick up on the story.

The Waikato Times (the newspaper for Hamilton and surrounds, and one of the bigger newspapers in New Zealand) has over the weekend included a news story on Ross and his achievements, which is great to see. The news story, which you can read online here, also gives a bit more information about Ross, and his nominated story, "Monsieur Alice is Absent" - a murder mystery story set in France in the 1970s.
