We’re very excited about the forthcoming publication of M.M. Bennetts’s Of Honest Fame on 8th October. And we’re enormously proud of Bennetts’s achievement. It’s the first time we’ve taken on an unfinished manuscript, so we’ve had the chance to see the book come to life over the past months. It’s been a privilege to see a real craftsman at work, and it’s a privilege to be publishing this book. (If you haven’t already, read Bennetts’s latest blog post here.)
While we’re busy finalising the launch events that will be taking place in October and November, here’s something to keep you occupied–a competition for a signed first-edition hardback of Of Honest Fame. All you have to do is to work out the last word of the book from this cryptic crossword clue:
