Agatha

WWW stránky ocenění: Agatha

Uděluje se od roku 1989 za tradiční romány a povídky „old school“, které jsou psané ve stylu Agathy Christie (žádné přehnané násilí, žádný explicitní sex, děj musí mít logické vyústění). Společnost Malice Domestic, která cenu udílí je složena ze 7 lidí, kteří jsou zvoleni každý rok po udílení cen, je mezi nimi vždy zástupce autorů, fanoušků, kritiků atd.
