The Patricia Wentworth fest continues

News from Dean Street Press that they’re bringing out the last thirteen Patricia Wentworth books. They’ve been kind enough to send me Weekend with Death, which I’m really looking forward to reading.

Even more exciting news about the enterprising Dean Street people. They are going to publish Furrowed Middlebrow Books. If you follow the blog, you’ll know already that Scott’s literary passion is for books written by women authors and published in the early twentieth century. Unfortunately, many of these are hard to find so reissues will be very welcome. Scott is naturally wildly excited about the project and you can read more about it here.

I can’t wait!
