Felony Goes Electric!

For those readers too young (or too foggy) to remember, that headline is a reference to the scandalized reports of a certain Mr. Zimmerman’s performance at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. After having made his name with a traditional acoustic sound, Dylan made a late-in-the-day decision at the Festival to amp up. The audience response – and, after the festival, the wider cultural response – was sharply divided, with many people crying treachery, claiming that Dylan had cravenly caved to market demands, while others simply loved the opportunity to welcome Dylan aboard the rock-and-roll bus.

At Felony & Mayhem, we are similarly embracing the brave new electronic world, and we hope our audience’s response will tilt more toward the positive (or, at the very least, that staunch traditionalists will forgive us). It’s true, we love old-fashioned ink-and-paper books. But we have been overwhelmed with requests for ebook editions, and we can’t help appreciating the convenience of electronic readers. In fact, we’re really excited about these new editions. There are lots more waiting in the wings, but for the moment, here’s what’s playing on center stage:

Simon Brett’s Blotto, Twinks series
Elizabeth Daly’s Henry Gamadge series
Lucretia Grindle’s The Faces of Angels
Maggie Joel’s The Second-Last Woman in England
Ngaio Marsh’s Inspector Alleyn series
Michael McDowell’s Jack & Susan series
Sarah Rayne’s Ghost Song and A Dark Dividing
Kate Ross’s Julian Kestrel series
Leslie Thomas’s Dangerous Davies: The Last Detective
Laura Wilson’s The Lover

Happy reading!
