DC Wins National Mystery Novel Award

By Editorial Staff

Dr. Herbert R.

Congratulations go to Herbert R. "Chap" Reaver, D.C. who recently won the prestigious Edgar Allan Poe Award for his mystery novel Mote. The "Edgar Awards" -- the crime writing genre's equivalent of an Oscar -- are voted on by members of the Mystery Writers of America. Winners are given a statuette of Edgar Allan Poe.

"I'm still kind of spinning," Dr. Reaver told a local newspaper in his hometown of Marietta, Georgia, "I didn't realize what a big deal it was. The nicest part is that you are honored by your peers and your fellow writers."

Mote is Dr. Reaver's first novel, and won in the Best Young Adult Mystery category. See the February 15, 1991 issue of "DC."
