December is a busy time for bloggers, looking back at the books they have read, the ones they wish they hadn’t read and the ones they really meant to read but never got around to, and yes at some point one such type of post will probably adorn this blog (bet you can’t wait!).
However today’s post is looking at some of the books which have come onto my radar as being released next year and for all us fans of vintage mystery fiction there seems to be a good selection in store.
First up the British Library are spoiling us with the following titles…
Next up is Harper Collins who have an equally interesting array of vintage crime…
They will also be reprinting The Deductions of Colonel Gore by Lynn Brock and The Vase Mystery by Vernon Loder (no cover art available as of yet).
Across the Atlantic Felony and Mayhem are starting the year with some new reprints by Lenore Glen Offord and Patricia (which I will hopefully be sampling)…
I tried Celia Fremlin for the first time this year with her novel, The Hours Before Dawn and have been eager to try more of her work, so it was very pleasing to see that her novels are being reprinted by Dover Publications next year.
Fellow Boris Akunin fans will also be pleased that another of his works is being translated, Black City.
Ngaio Marsh fans will be intrigued to know that Stella Duffy’s completion of Marsh’s Money in the Morgue will be coming out in 2018 as well.
That’s all for now. But as and when I find more interesting upcoming titles I’ll add them to the list. Or of course you can save me a job and add relevant missing titles in the comments below.
