Big thank you to our partners: the British Library and Harper Collins

Every delegate at the conference received a goody bag which contained the British Library Crime Classics edition of Death of an Airman by Christopher St John Sprigg ( a name that sounds like it was a pseudonym of the type favoured by many Golden Age authors but it isn’t).

The British Library also gave delegates exclusive opportunity to buy the new British Library Crime Classics book Quick Curtain by Alan Nelville at their pop up bookstore at the conference before it goes on general sale on 1st July.

Harper Collins very generously included in the goody bags one of three new Collins Crime Club editions of classic Edmund Crispin mysteries featuring his Oxford don detective Gervase Fen.

Harper Collins also provided in each goody bag one of three historic Golden Age novels in new hardback Detective Story Club/Collins Crime Club editions with introductions by our own Dr John Curran, Martin Edwards and David Brawn.

We hope delegates enjoy reading whichever of the books they got in their own goody bag.
