  Arthur Ellis Award  

[Ellis Trophy][Ellis Trophy]

The Crime Writers of Canada's Arthur Ellis Award is named after the pseudonym used by Canada's last official hangman. When you pull the cord attached to the trophy, the poor fellow hanging from the noose does death spasms . . .

The trophies are designed and built by Canadian artist Barry Lambeck.

I won the Arthur Ellis Award for my story "Just Like Old Times," commissioned for Mike Resnick's anthology Dinosaur Fantastic, and first published in On Spec magazine.
