Bryant & May: The Verdict
I’m still reeling from this. Random House, my excellent US publisher, has just announced that it is going to let me continue with the Bryant & May books, and rebrand them to gain a bigger readership. No word from the UK yet, but I’m hoping that they may now follow suit.
The next volume will therefore be ‘The Memory Of Blood’, and involves a defenestration, a strange private museum, an impossible crime and a return to the theatre, the setting of the first novel. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. I hope to be able to ht a deadline that will allow the series to continue unbroken, although I’m also in the middle of writing a thriller, and of course, my first play.
‘Life is all a dream,’ says Arthur Bryant at the end of ‘Off The Rails’ – and I concur with that!
PS Artwork is by Keith Page, who I’d love to do a graphic novel with.
