After a flood of new books in 2000, Kim Newman has been going through something of a drought for the past five years. There’s been some reprints of older titles, and a minor collection, but nothing for Newman fans to really sink their teeth into. That ends in June next year when Chris Roberson’s MonkeyBrain Books publishes The Man from The Diogenes Club, a collection of Newman’s Richard Jeperson stories. The book is very cool, and features an appropriately swinging cover from John Picacio, who has nailed the feel of the stories perfectly (and is clearly familiar with the model for Jeperson). You can get a good feel for the book if you check out “The Serial Murders” over at SciFi.com and, if takes your fancy as much as it did mine, you’ll want a copy. I can’t wait to see the book when it’s done.
