Giles Blunt, my favourite Canadian mystery writer, has a new one in his John Cardinal series, which is going to be released August 7. Cardinal was last seen in Crime Machine, which I reviewed here last year. This was exciting enough to discover.
Of all things, Alan Garner has a sequel - ok, third book, in the now Brisingamen and Moon of Gomrath two books series, now after 50 years has the third book due out next month, here is the link to the Guardian article. Click on Boneland in the article.
I don't know when it's coming out in Canada, though it's on my wishlist now. One of the best fantasy series ever. I'm due to reread the two books now, so it will be fresh whenever Boneland is out here.
Here, is the cover of the new Artur Indridason, due out July 24. It features Sigurdur Oli, last seen in Outrage, which was supposed to be in paperback this month, and has now been put back to October. I don't know if I should read Outrage first, I guess I should. But why would the second one be out in softcover before the first one? Mysteries of publishing.
And then, finally: the very first Harry Hole mystery is going to be published. It's not coming out here until October, but here it is, the cover of The Bat.
It's set in Australia, and is the case that made his name (that we have seen referred to in The Red Breast and some of his other books). I am so thrilled. I am currently reading Phantom, his latest mystery, and am totally engrossed in it. The Bat was never published before in English, the Harry Hole series in English started with The Red Breast, so this is wonderful news.***edited to add: We get the whole series!
So what books are you waiting for, or that you have just learned are going to be out later this year?
