Need to Know

Jeremy Duns, famous journalist and thriller writer, has put together a great article about Desmond Bagley’s friend Iwan Morelius. Iwan was an outgoing and very friendly man, who served in the Swedish armed forces. He also helped a lot of best-selling thriller-writers of the day with military background and what today we’d call “social networking”.

The article is actually part of a book written by Mr Duns called “Need to Know” about the spy and thriller genre and his own part in that. It is available for free in many different eBook formats so head on over to his website and download yourself a copy. The link is in the header paragraph of the article.

Writer: An Enquiry into a Novelist

As we begin a New Year, some really good news for a change. From our friends over at The Bagley Brief web-site, the soon to be released memoirs of the author detailing his life and work during the period before he became a world-wide best-seller. It was originally titled Writer: An Enquiry into a Novelist and written by Bagley on, we believe, his electronic word-processor, unlike any of his novels.

As this publication is FREE to download it is suggested a donation to charity might be considered. Here’s the official blurb:

‘The book is a not-for-profit publication to be made freely available via thebagleybrief.com as a PDF download. There will be links included for voluntary donations to charities the Bagleys supported, though this is not a pre-requisite for download. Publishing this way will give people the choice to make a donation directly to one of the charities, should they wish, and know that 100% of their donation will go to the charity concerned.’

There is a Foreword by crime and mystery fiction guru Mike Ripley, and the text has been edited by Philip Eastwood. Publication-day is expected to be sooner rather than later so for updates keep an eye on:

… and of course we will update here and the Facebook page too when we know more.
