Autumn news 2020

Two further pre-Frankfurt deals to report, with more to follow soon:

John Matthews, the expert on everything to do with King Arthur, has been commissioned by HarperCollins to write a new version of Malory’s medieval classic Morte d’Arthur, adding stories that Malory either left out or wasn’t aware of. The book will be illustrated by John Howe, whose work on Tolkien and Arthurian legends is world famous.

Matthew Pritchard’s Broken Arrow, featuring Anglo-Spanish reporter Danny Sanchez investigating a murder and a hushed-up scandal involving radioactivity from an American atomic bomb, has been optioned by Wanda-Halcyon Television for a web-based series to be filmed in Spain.

Congratulations to both!

We also send a big hooray to Nate Crowley, whose delightful, fantastical travelogue Notes from Small Planets was published this week by HarperVoyager to great acclaim.
