Have Your Say On Bryant & May No.19
Much to my surprise, the Bryant & May books are only up to their sixteenth volume. The hardback graphic novel isn’t part of the canon, and at any given time I’m two years ahead of you lot, so I sometimes lose my place.
With the seventeenth volume currently going through the editing process and a cover already designed (very evocative and atmospheric) it will feature my decrepit detectives back in the present day not long after the events of ‘Wild Chamber’. It’s a standalone, but there’s a question perhaps a few of you want answered, which is – what the hell happened to the body in the PCU basement?
To find out about that you’re going to have to wait for ‘Bryant & May: England’s Finest’, the second volume of missing cases, thirteen in all, one of which solves that particular mystery.
The nineteenth novel will also be present-day, and although I have a few ideas for that I haven’t settled on anything final. If there’s any London theme, character or location you feel I’ve missed so far or haven’t full explored, let me know and I’ll consider it for the nineteenth book.
I plan to take the series to twenty, but what that anniversary volume will feature is anyone’s guess.
BTW, the artwork at the top was done by a reader, who worked out that all of the chapter headings of ‘Hall of Mirrors’ were song titles – except one. I can’t find your name, but thank you for this!
