Back in 2012 I began digitising the five detective novels of Simon Nash, all of which were published in the 1960s. I still have three more to finish off (the third one won’t be long I hope), but recently there has been a flurry of interest in this forgotten writer. In March 2014 CADS (Crime and Detective Stories) magazine published a great piece by John Cooper on Simon Nash in issue 67. CADS doesn’t seem to have a website, but it’s published by Geoff Bradley, who can be contacted at Geoffcads [AT] aol.com. The magazine has an old-style fanzine look about it, but the content seems very good indeed.
Elsewhere, I published a short guest post about Simon Nash on the blog of crime fiction writer Martin Edwards, who I met at, of all places, a James Ellroy conference organised by Dr. Steven Powell of Venetian Vase fame.
Also by Simon Nash in ebook, Killed by Scandal.
“When a student is found murdered at Mudge Hall, lecturer and literary critic Adam Ludlow pursues her killer around the seedy pubs, nightclubs, and boarding houses of early 1960s London. He meets small-time criminals, a communist cell, and a police inspector keen to show off his knowledge of English Literature. But to solve the mystery, Ludlow must discover the secret of an incriminating bracelet.”
