THE BLOODSTAINED BOOKSHELF - February 2016


The Bloodstained Bookshelf is a (more-or-less) monthly list of recent and forthcoming traditional-print mysteries published in the US. If you are an author, publisher, or agent and have information about a forthcoming book, please let me know for inclusion in this list. For more information, please check out the Notes.

Titles in boldface are new since the last publication of the Bookshelf.

PLEASE NOTE that some prices appear with a (?) following. This means that I haven't been able to determine the actual publisher list price; the amount given is my best guess and should not be depended upon.

Breaking News:

Publishers Weekly has announced that Penguin is merging Berkley Publishing into Putnam/Dutton. This most likely means that a number of cozy series (including some of which I personally am very fond!) will be ending; we have already heard that Julie Hyzy is ending the White House Chef series.

I sincerely hope that all of these authors find new homes, particularly those who had just started series which have such great promise. Some may continue under the new management; at least these days, self-publishing is an option for many of them, and I hope they consider it. I wish them all the very best of luck.

I have also just heard that Five Star is discontinuing their mystery line as well, although I have not confirmed this.


The last listings for Berkley Prime Crime books I have (under the Berkley publisher notation) appear in October, although there may be a few more straggling in. I show Five Star mysteries scheduled through November 2016 at this time.
