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!)
