Yesterday, this year's Golden Derringer recipient, Ed Gorman, blogged that he'd heard about the award from SMFS member Terrie Farley Moran.
I got in touch with Ed through his blog post, sent him his Golden Derringer certificate, and put him in touch with plaque-maker Jim Doherty.
Here are Ed's words of thanks from his email to me:
Thanks so much, Gerald. This really means a lot to me. As I mentioned Ed was always so damned nice and helpful. And his talent was so varied and masterful. Thanks very much for writing and please thank the Committee for me.
I also mentioned if he'd like to blog or send in a further message of thanks, I would post or link to it here.
