Bryant & May: Christopher Fowler

From Christopher Fowler:

Bryant & May are getting a further two novels. My American friends are still waiting for the arrival of 'Bryant & May and the Invisible Code' in September, but it will definitely be followed by further adventures, and before that the graphic novel arrives in January. In a week's time I should know whether they are al so set to continue in their beautiful UK editions, too.

First will be 'Bryant & May and the Bleeding Heart', in which the decrepit detectives investigate Resurrectionists in a London graveyard, and Henry VIII and some mummified cats feature in the hunt for a killer. Mr Merry, the PCU's new nemesis, turns up, and Arthur gets caught with a shovel in his hands at midnight.

This will be followed by 'Bryant & May and the Burning Man', in which Bryant, incapacitated at home, must help the unit solve the case of a man burned alive in an old cinema. When he starts searching through his past investigations to find a clue he knows he's seen, we get the inside story on some of the PCU's earlier unseen cases as the detectives find themselves caught up in a deadly Guy Fawkes Night.

They're going to be great - I feel like starting right now (but will wait until the contract arrives!)

This is excellent news. A new Bryant and May is
always anticipated with great joy.

And may there be another two, and another two and another...............

Bryant and May are two of the most original detectives to come along in decades.

I always look forward to another Bryant and May-I only wish he wasn't doing graphic novels. for some reason, even though I loved comic books, when younger, graphic novels don't do a thing for me. I prefer a regular book any day.
