Previously on Radio 3 - Andrew Taylor on Poe

You can listen to Andrew Taylor talking about Poe's childhood for a few more days on iplayer:
Andrew Taylor investigates Edgar Allan Poe's childhood in England and the inspiration behind his own bestselling novel The American Boy.
And in case you missed the announcement, Andrew has won the Cartier Diamond Dagger 2009 Award (from the CWA website:)
“The recipient of the Cartier Diamond Dagger Award is chosen by the members and committee of the CWA and is very much an honour awarded by the author’s peers and thus makes it special.”
Andrew is a very nice man (a very nice man) and not only is a marvellous writer but also a great supporter of new talent.

I don´t know Andrew Taylor (wish I did) but I have read his Lydmouth series and the Fallen Angel trilogy so here is one author who really deserves an award!
