Agatha Award
Named in Honor of Agatha Christie, the awards are given for materials first published in the United States by a living author during the calendar year, either in hardcover, as a paperback original, or e-book.  At an annual convention in Washington, D.C., the awards are handed out by Malice Domestic Ltd. The Agatha Awards honor the "traditional mystery." That is to say, books best typified by the works of Agatha Christie as well as others. For our purposes, the genre is loosely defined as mysteries that:
- contain no explicit sex
- contain no excessive gore or gratuitous violence
