The 17th September 2020 will see the publication of a new anthology of “Howdunits”. A new word to many, perhaps. This book is a curated selection of essays and articles by famous authors who are, or were once, members of The Detection Club, talking about their craft in the Crime and Detection genre, edited by well-known expert on the subject, author Martin Edwards. Desmond Bagley features here as can be seen from the, slightly eye-goggling cover art. You might need a little help to spot him, so I’ll give you a clue – Lower-left quadrant, just above Agatha Christie.
