Andrew Masterson Book List

Posted

Andrew Masterson is a journalist and author. An impressive array of awards for his work, he has twice won the Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Novel, with The Last Days: The Apocryphon of Joe Panther (1998) and The Second Coming: The Passion of Joe Panther (2000). The Letter Girl (1999) was shortlisted for the Aurealis speculative fiction award. In 2001 he published his fourth novel, Death of the Author. Incidently, I love this next assertion in his profile...when he is not writing, he is generally drinking Guinness. Good one! These books sound like they're terrific off-beat hardboiled fare.
