Here's some exciting news! (Well, it's exciting to Mike, maybe not you, but hey.) The Ellery Queen 2020 Reader's Poll has just been announced and it turns out that Mike has placed 10th on the list! Granted, it's last place, but what the hell, beggars can't be choosers, and considering that Mike ranks alongside such luminaries as Doug Allyn and the legendary Joyce Carol Oates, it goes without saying that he's stoked.
