Rex Burns Shoots for Derringer

Rex Burn's short story "Shadow People," which appeared in Alfred Hitchcock, was nominated for a 2007 Derringer, an award for the best mystery short stories of the year. Sure, this is somewhat old news, but it was new to me. Besides, Dr. Burns (as I knew him) was my professor at UCD awhile back. Took a fiction workshop and a lit class from him (I remember reading five Great American Novels in a week to pass my final).

His short story "Homestead" came out in the November 2007 issue of Alfred.
