Congratulations to Stephen Edger (aka M. A. Hunter), who has signed a four-book deal with Boldwood Books.
Emily Glenister sold World English Languages to Boldwood's Emily Yau, and the first in the deal, Adrift, will be published in May 2023.
Released just over a week ago, Stephen Moss' Ten Birds That Changed the World has received a wonderful write-up in the Guardian:
"The book is packed with remarkable facts and figures ... Moss is also a companionable narrator, often mixing personal recollections into the science and natural history, such as his trip as a boy to the Tower of London with his mother, where he first saw the ravens, which have been associated with the site since medieval times. A fascinating study of the fraught relationship between human beings and our feathered friends."

"This dystopia is as disturbing as it is absorbing."
