Today is a day of mixed emotions.
Had the pandemic not intervened, I would have been travelling up to London to help set up for the Bodies From The Library conference scheduled for tomorrow, that is sadly deferred till next year. But, on the glass half full side, I have just received my advance copy of Tony Medawar’s third collection of lost stories from the Golden Age.
And although there is no conference tomorrow, there is still time to enter the competition which we are running in conjunction with HarperCollins to mark the publication of the third volume of the Bodies From The Library series.
All you need to do is to decide which of the authors whose stories feature in the new volume (listed below) began one of their tales with the sentence:
“Adrian Belford, emerging from the offices of Messrs Golding & Moss, Financiers, hesitated uncertainly at the corner of Conduit Street and Bond Street.”
Authors included in Bodies From The Library 3 are:
John Dickson Carr
William A. R. Collins
Christopher St John Sprigg
Dorothy L. Sayers
Ethel Lina White
To enter the competition you should send an email to BFTLCompetition@gmail.com with your selected author’s name as the email Subject/Headline/Title and giving your name for us to contact you should you win.
There will be two winners of the competition. Each will win a ticket to next year’s Bodies From The Library Conference.
The competition closes at midnight on 4 July.
Only one entry per person will be accepted.
All correct entries will be entered into a draw to select the winner.
Full Competition Rules are available at our website.
