Walker Books have signed a new Alex Rider novel from Anthony Horowitz, for publication in June 2017. The new novel, Never Say Die, promises to be the most action packed and thrilling instalment of the series so far, with sequences set in Egypt, London and Europe. Horowitz had previously announced that the series was finished, but was inspired to continue his hero’s story while preparing a collection of Alex Rider short stories, to be published in 2018.
Horowitz says: ‘For the first time in over three years, and contrary to my expectations, I found myself revisiting my character, Alex Rider. And I realized how much I had missed him. I have loved writing the new book and I am certain it will appeal not just to new readers but to young people in their teens and twenties who grew up with Alex.’
NewSouth are pleased to announce that Madeline Gleeson’s Offshore: Behind the Wire on Manus and Nauru has been longlisted for the 2016 Walkley Book Award. In Offshore, Gleeson provides a comprehensive overview of the first three years of offshore processing—why the policy was introduced, the experiences of asylum seekers and staff in the centres, and why the truth has been so hard to find.
