The only place to get your copy of Bodies From The Library 2, Tony Medawar’s second collection of lost classics from the Golden Age of Detective Fiction, before anyone else is at The Bodies From The Library Conference. Copies will be available for delegates at the conference to purchase before the book goes on sale officially the following month.
The publication of the first Bodies from the Library volume in 2018 was an unexpected treat for fans of some of the genre’s cleverest and most popular writers. With lost stories by authors including Georgette Heyer, A.A. Milne, Anthony Berkeley, Nicholas Blake, Cyril Hare and Roy Vickers, the book was a unique opportunity finally to fill the gaps in some of the greatest canons of detective and thriller fiction.
This follow-up volume is a showcase for fifteen more popular names from the Golden Age, including Margery Allingham, Helen Simpson, Ethel Lina White, John Rhode, Agatha Christie and S.S. Van Dine – plus a few big surprises – with stories so rare that many don’t yet appear on their writers’ established bibliographies.
Selected and introduced by Tony Medawar, who also writes a short essay about each contributor, Bodies from the Library 2 is a genuine treasure-trove of missing episodes from the work of some of the world’s favourite classic crime writers.
