As you lovely, lovely subscribers know (or do now), you'll all be getting a bonus e-book to say thank you for supporting The Diabolical Club. I felt that it was only right, as you've put your faith in me and the book (and you're paying more than the cover price will be in the shops), that you get something unique and not available elsewhere as a reward. So, today I can reveal exactly what that bonus book will be.
The Nearly Invisible Man and Other Stories really will be a book in its own right. It's around 50,000 words (the average novel is 70,000 - 90,000) and will consist of twelve unpublished short stories and novellas featuring characters from A Murder to Die For, The Diabolical Club and the third, as yet unpublished, book in the series, Cockerings. You'll also get a sneak preview of Cockerings in the form of the first two chapters - I'll probably run a campaign to fund it with Unbound later this year.
The chapter listing for the book looks like this:
The Nearly Invisible Man (A DCI Quisty story)
Go To Hell!
A Soft Answer (A Miss Cutter story)
Merry Christmas Mister Whelk
Medium Well Done (A DCI Quisty story)
Potato Salad Days
Five Go To The Captain’s Cottage
Man Of Hunger
The Perfect Crime (A DCI Quisty story)
The Sheriff of Pardley
The Promise Of A Better Tomorrow – A Christmas Story
An extract from the forthcoming novel Cockerings
As you can see, there are three stories featuring DCI Gavin Quisty and one Miss Cutter adventure written by Agnes Crabbe herself!
I hope you'll enjoy it as much as the novels.
