Unpublished Elmore Leonard Stories Coming In 2015

Jennifer Schuessler at the New York Times offers a piece on an upcoming book of short stories by the late great crime writer Elmore Leonard.

Elmore Leonard may have died last August, but readers now have a book of new stories by the wisecracking, adverb-murdering grand old man of crime fiction to look forward to.
The British publisher Weidenfeld & Nicolson has acquired 15 unpublished early stories, most written while Leonard was working as a copywriter at a Detroit advertising agency in the 1950s. The volume will be released in the fall of 2015, with HarperCollins publishing in the United States.

  1. I wonder if readers have a "right" to read stories that a writer chose not to publish during his or her lifetime. The stories may be interesting as perspective on the development of a writer's career, but perhaps we intrude too much by reading what a writer had not shared when he or she was alive. Well, it's just a thought.
