A novel with clues IP: 22.214.171.124 Posted on November 14, 2016 at 07:43:22 PM by Derek Harrison
You will be interested to know that Nick Smith, well known to readers of this message board, is publishing a novel on December 30th. It's called Drowned Hogg Day. It's set in the present day but is largely about the events of December 30th 1816 (when Shelley married Mary Godwin, author of Frankenstein) and Dec 30th 1916 (when Rasputin was murdered). One of the unique aspects of the novel is that every chapter starts with a crossword clue (the answer is hidden in that chapter but you will find the clues very easy anyway) and nearly all those clues go together at the end of the book to make up a single crossword. He is publishing the novel in blog form, chapter by chapter between Nov 10 (just gone) and Dec 30.
You can follow the blog from the link below. Remember that you have to scroll down to Nov 10 to get the first chapter.
It looks absolutely fascinating.
The novel Drowned Hogg Day is a PriSm publication and will be published on 30 December,
