One of the ways the group set about achieving its goal was to give annual awards to the best fiction written about private eyes. Known as the Shamus Awards, they've been given out to the biggest names in the field, and now the winners of the award for the short story have been collected in two big volumes edited and introduced by Mr. Randisi, himself.
But wait. That's not all. There are bonus stories in each volume, by some of the big names in the field. And if you pre-order at Amazon right now, you'll get a list in the back of the book of all the Shamus winners in all categories during the years covered in that volume.
