Not that you can see the entries yourselves yet, of course, but the winner of Crimeculture’s alt-Holmes flash competition, as chosen by yours truly, has been announced. All ten shortlistees will be published on Crimeculture in July, and they’re well worth a read; expect linkage as and when.

Thanks again to Kate Horsley for asking me to don my wig and gavel (the latter something I’ve been banned from waving around in public since that unfortunate incident in 2007), and if you’re one of the non-winning entrants, please don’t hate me. I’m lovely.
