Ben Aaronovitch Thanks Booksellers

OldRosieJugBest-selling author Ben Aaronovitch has decided to say thank you to the ‘unsung heroes of the book trade’, the booksellers. A former bookseller himself, the author will deliver 1,000 flagons of Weston’s Old Rosie cider to 384 book stores in the UK (independents and Waterstone’s branches) between June 8th-19th.

Ben is the author of the bestselling Peter Grant urban fantasy series, which is published in the UK by Gollancz. The gesture of thanks precedes the paperback release of FOXGLOVE SUMMER, the fifth novel in the series, on July 9th. Here’s the synopsis…

In the fifth of his bestselling series Ben Aaronovitch takes Peter Grant out of whatever comfort zone he might have found and takes him out of London – to a small village in Herefordshire where the local police are reluctant to admit that there might be a supernatural element to the disappearance of some local children. But while you can take the London copper out of London you can’t take the London out of the copper.

Travelling west with Beverley Brook, Peter soon finds himself caught up in a deep mystery and having to tackle local cops and local gods. And what’s more all the shops are closed by 4pm …

The Peter Grant series currently includes RIVERS OF LONDON, MOON OVER SOHO, WHISPERS UNDERGROUND, BROKEN HOMES, FOXGLOVE SUMMER and the upcoming THE HANGING TREE. All of which are published in the UK by Gollancz. The series is published in the US by Del Rey (#1-3) and DAW Books (#4 onwards); it is also published in Germany by DTV, and France by J’ai Lu. It has been published widely in other markets/languages as well. RIVERS OF LONDON: BODY WORK, a comic series set between books four and five, is due to start publishing from July (Titan Comics).
