Ian Rankin was born in the Kingdom of Fife in 1960. He graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1982, and then spent three years writing novels when he was supposed to be working towards a PhD in Scottish Literature. His first Rebus novel was published in 1987, and the Rebus books are now translated into twenty-two languages and are bestsellers on several continents.

Ian Rankin has been elected a Hawthornden Fellow, and is also a past winner of the Chandler-Fulbright Award. He is the recipient of four Crime Writers' Association Dagger Awards including the prestigious Diamond Dagger in 2005. In 2004, Ian won America's celebrated Edgar Award for Resurrection Men.

The new Ian Rankin RATHER BE THE DEVIL 1/52 signed looks gorgeous. Collected them this morning from our bookbinders. They are late, but just worth the wait.

The Stuart Neville inclusion about Rebus and the Devil is terrific for the fans.
