Genre: Crime Novels
The Top 100 Crime Novels of All Time is a list published in book form in 1990 by the British-based Crime Writers' Association. Five years later, the Mystery Writers of America published a similar list entitled The Top 100 Mystery Novels of All Time. Many titles can be found in both lists.
The Crime Writers' Association (CWA) is a writers' association in the United Kingdom. Founded by John Creasey in 1953, it is currently chaired by Alison Joseph and has almost 700 members.
Membership is open to any author who has had one crime novel produced by a bona fide publisher (or at the discretion of the committee) with associate membership also offered to those in the publishing industry and provisional membership to writers who have a contract with a publisher but whose book is not out yet. It enables writers to contact each other, promotes crime writing with annual awards, and organises social events. It also supports writing groups, festivals and literary events with authors. The main aims of Crime Writers Association are to promote the crime genre and to support professional writers. The CWA has been providing social and professional support for its members for more than half a century, as well as running the prestigious Dagger Awards.
The Director of the Crime Writers Association is Lucy Santos, who was previously Secretary of The Authors Club.
