“The Cuckoo’s Calling” wins LA Times Book Prize

It seems that one of our favorite fantasy authors has now cemented herself as a real talent in the world of mystery as well! Last night, the winners of the 34th annual Los Angeles Time Book Prizes were announced, and J.K. Rowling, writing as Robert Galbraith, was awarded one of these prestigious prizes.

The Cuckoo’s Calling, which caused a stir last summer when it was revealed that J.K. Rowling had written the mystery novel under a pseudonym, won the prize in the category of Mystery/Thriller. As we posted back in February, the book was one of five finalists for the award, and we’re pleased to see it come out on top!

There was a ceremony to honor all of the nominees and winners, but J.K. Rowling was not in attendance. Congratulations to Jo!

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
