The Fate Of Bryant & May
It’s crunch time. The Bryant & May series has been hanging in the balance for some months now. The problem is simple; although the books do nicely they’re not blockbusters, and in credit-crunch times everyone is looking for Big Books. Bryant & May are ‘genre’, because mystery is genre, while crime is mainstream. I don’t write police procedurals. Bryant & May are are intended to represent something unique – Golden Age detectives in the 21st century. But in the next few days I’ll know whether the series is going to continue. Bear in mind that continuing Bryant & May wouldn’t affect my current project, which is a big thriller.
I hope I’ll be able to post the decision on this site early next week. You’ll know then whether it’s time to welcome the old gits in a new adventure, or if it’s time to wave them farewell.
