Description

“Absence doesn't make the heart grow fonder. It makes people think you're dead.” So begins Christopher Fowler's foray into the back catalogues and backstories of 99 authors who, once hugely popular, have all but disappeared from our shelves. These 99 journeys are punctuated by 12 short essays about faded once-favourites: including the now-vanished novels Walt Disney brought to the screen and the contemporary rivals of Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie who did not stand the test of time.
