Winners of Eddie LaCrosse Packs and Brooklyn Knight



Loads of people entered both of these contests.  For the Bledsoe contest I asked for your favorite Literary Detectives and I got some great answers.  The clear winners were the new and old standards Harry Dresden and Sherlock Holmes with the most votes.  But everyone from October Daye, Thursday Next, and Trixie Belden to Philip Marlowe, Hercule Poirot and the Famous Five by Enid Blyton were mentioned. Glad to see all the variety.

The winners of the two Eddie LaCrosse complete series are Hinge Antoine from France and Nicholas Askren from Colorado.  Nicholas is a fan of the rough and tumble Joe Pitt so he should definitely find plenty to like in Bledsoe's series and Antonie is a fan of Joseph Rouletabille who is a popular French detective from the early 1900s still gracing the screens of French cinema today that I'm unfamiliar with.

The winners of Brooklyn Knight by C.J. Henderson are Dawn Antoline from New York, Patrick McGee from Kentucky, and Scott Bussey from Alabama.

The contest for The Winds of Khalakovo by Bradley Beaulieu is still open for a few more days as well.

Yay ! Thanks a lot !

Rouletabille is an interesting detective and the movies were quite good too. Gaston Leroux wrote a lot since he was published in the newspaper and there are many stories of his that are interesting for the amateur of speculative fiction ( he wrote a story with both a robot and a vampire and it's quite funny).

The french one
