Candas Jane Dorsey wins award!

SF Canada member Candas Jane Dorsey’s mystery novel, What’s the Matter with Mary Jane? has won the Crime Writers of Canada’s Whodunit Award for Best Traditional Mystery!

Dorsey manages to write with humour while remaining sensitive to serious issues like grief, gentrification, and privilege as well as how privilege might best be used for the greater good. The mystery itself unwinds as it should with information crucial to the solution sprinkled throughout, eventually arriving at a satisfying, though bittersweet, conclusion.
