Since 1998, the Short Mystery Fiction Society has awarded the annual Derringers—named after the popular pocket pistol—to outstanding published stories and people who've greatly advanced or supported the form. Nominees and winners are selected by members of the Short Mystery Fiction Society. The 2018 winners will be announced on May 15, so if you are an SMFS member, read these stories and vote!
Last year I published my first two short stories ever, and both of them have been nominated for Derringer awards! This is a huge, huge, honor for me!
