As I have mentioned often, I am thrilled to be living in an (oft-eBookish) age where classic detective fiction titles and many obscure or forgotten authors and mysteries are being made available once more to a new generation of readers. Dean Street Press is certainly one of the busiest publishers of Golden Age crime fiction, and its catalogue is growing impressively wide and deep. Detective series from prolific authors like E.R. Punshon, Christopher Bush, and Patricia Wentworth are made available once more, and DSP is adding new names and novels all the time.
Coming in March, five additional Moray Dalton titles are added to the mix, as well as three books from crime-writing couple E and M.A. Radford and four books from a newly represented writer, Henrietta Clandon. Dean Street Press is also releasing Kind Hearts and Coronets, the famed 1907 murderous satire by Roy Horniman.
January continues to be a busy work month for me, but I look forward to February for just a bit of free time and a chance to try a new (to me) mystery and author offered up at Dean Street Press. Thank you, Rupert, for all of your hard work and dedication!
Lots of book reviews and discussion of classic and contemporary mystery fiction. I welcome comments and continuing conversation.
