Lifetime Achievement:

Robert B. Parker

Robert B. Parker revolutionized the modern detective novel, helping to bridge the gap between the classic Hammett-Chandler-Macdonald tradition and the contemporary stories of Block, Grafton and Lehane. His creation of Spenser, the quintessential private eye, will live on long after his contemporaries have faded into obscurity. (Read the tribute essay to Robert B. Parker.)
