Esme Miskimmin and I have just been offered a contract with Palgrave Macmillan to write a reference book called 100 British Crime Writers. This will be a companion to 100 American Crime Writers and will follow the same format of a detailed introduction followed by 100 biographical articles. Both books will be published as part of the Crime Files series. We’re very excited about this and looking forward to starting work. The two books will go very well together. News, information, and samples from both books will be available here, though for the time being the site is limited to the 100 American project. More to follow.
