Happy Hogmanay. Or if you’re from anywhere north of John O’Groats or south of Gretna Green, Happy New Year. And, as is (almost) traditional, here’s a round-up of the best books of 2017, fiction and non-fiction.
Over the past year, I’ve been privileged to read a large number of immensely good books: truly, the quality of writing is as great now as it has ever been and I’m convinced that some of these will become classics, read for decades, if not for centuries to come.
For those of you who just can’t wait until the next book comes out, we have an announcement. ‘Story Cuts’ – a collection of short stories from authors as diverse as AS Byatt, Lee Child… and MC Scott – is available to download now, for in Kindle and iBooks.
