Series sell. Readers want to find out what happens to the characters they've come to know and love. Of course if you are a single author, producing a series is a slog. Authors can fall out of love with their author long, long before their reading public does. Conan Doyle had to bring Sherlock Holmes back from the dead, and Ian Rankin's Rebus has lurched out of retirement. Bryant did not write the entire series, but still clocked up a thoroughly respectable thirty titles or so before handing the baton on to a team of ghost writers.
|One of the many American editions|
The series is no longer being added to. It's still in print, and is now being made available in ebook format. Bantam published the books in both America and the UK, though not all the American cover versions were available in the UK.
