  1. That is such good news about Arthur Upfield finally being reissued – I only ever managed to find an ancient copy of one of his novels at the library and would love to read more.

    • I couldn’t agree more, Marina Sofia. It’s a fantastic series that deserves much wider readership than it’s had in the last years. A re-release was more than in order.

    Hey Margot, just wanted to say how much I liked your crime fiction news break! Wow! Its the first one I’ve seen – sorry if I’ve missed others. It’s so professional and great to sort of meet you – and thanks for the crime update 🙂

    I would love to see AC’s play in London. Thanks for the great news.

  4. Thanks, Margot ! Just popped over to the Australian authors vote – Phew! Thank goodness we’re allowed to vote for more than one…

    • FictionFan – Glad the linked worked properly for you. And yes, it’s a very good thing one’s allowed more than one choice. I honestly couldn’t narrow down my choice, that’s for sure!

  5. I love the crime news break! You’re so professional and with great information to share. Can hardly wait for the next one. Are they scheduled at certain times?

  6. You know I always love these Margot and YouTube is something I intend to utilise more this year.

    • Thanks, Rebecca. YouTube is, as you know, easy to use. And FWIW, WordPress also has an option where you can upload video directly from your laptop or ‘phone or whatever. It’s not free, but the price is low.

  7. Margot: You are either psychic or great (!) minds think alike. I have just finished a Bony mystery. I find them periodically in Canadian used bookstores. I hope the paper copies of the new editions reach Canada. As well I have a preview copy of Split to Splinters to read this month. I enjoyed the first in the series.

    • Bill – That is some kind of timing, isn’t it. I really hope you’ll be able to get paper copies of more of the Bony novels. It’s a great thing in my opinion that the family is re-releasing Upfield’s work. And I’ll be interested in your opinion of Split to Splinters. To be honest, I thought you might enjoy this series and I hope the second is a good ‘un.

  8. Hey Margot – the Watermill Theatre is not that far from me – I think it’s hilarious that I found out about their new Christie production from a friend at the other side of the world… I will definitely try to go to that. Thanks!

  9. Love the crime fiction newscast. 🙂 Thanks for keeping us up to date, Margot!

    Thanks for the info on the releases of the Arthur Upfield novels. They are kind of hard to find.

    I, too, just finished the first “Boney” mystery. Pretty coincidental. I used it for my “U” author for 2014 for alphabetical mystery authors. I was able to request it through my local library from the “Link” program that accesses many libraries in Calif. I live in Sacramento and the book came from CSU Long Beach in southern Calif.! It was an old paperback but very well taken care of. I put a note in, thanking them for keeping the old mysteries.

    • Katy – Oh, that is interesting timing! I’m so glad your library was able to find a copy of the book – and well-cared for, too! They really have been hard to find, and I’m hoping that will change.

What's your view? I'd love to hear it.
