On Front Row tonight...

Barry Forshaw has dropped me a line to say that he'll be on Radio 4's Front Row programme tonight (7.15pm) promoting his Encyclopedia of British Crime Writing:
Encyclopedia of British Crime Writing
A new encyclopedia of British crime writing, listing everything from Miss Marple to Ian Rankin, is published next month. Its editor Barry Forshaw joins Mark Lawson to discuss the challenges of pulling off such an ambitious project, and crime writer Martyn Waites who is listed in the encyclopaedia takes a look at his own entry.

British Crime Writing: An Encyclopedia, edited by Barry Forshaw, is published by Greenwood World Publishing at £90.00, available from 28 February
The show can be listened to for seven days after broadcast.

I hope he has included the authors he left out of his Rough Guide; R.D.Wingfield and Reginald Hill.

Listening to the programme sounds a better option than shelling out £90 for the book.
