  • Hilary Bailey (x 16).

    Dear all,

    Next month, Bloomsbury are due to be republishing 16 books by Hilary Bailey (for those of you not in the know, that's Mike's first wife), including the semi-autobiographical 'Polly Put The Kettle On' and its two sequels, 'Mrs Mulvaney' and 'As Time Goes By'.

    They're all fairly expensive @ £19.99 each.

    She has some good reviews on Goodreads:

      Anyone here read her? I think Mike gave her a fair amount of credit for The Black Cooridor which I think is a fantastic book.

        Hilary Bailey's Works

        I've read a couple of them, mostly the early novels like Polly Put the Kettle On.

        She's also written sequels to some of the icons in the sf/fantasy field like Frankenstein's Bride. She did a Jack the Ripper novel The Cry from Street to Street and also one involving Sherlock Holmes' sister Strange Adventures of Charlotte Holmes. She also wrote a sequel to Jane Eyre Mrs Rochester.

        She almost had a mega best-seller. I believe the title was All the Days of My Life.

        LIke I said, I've only read the early books which I enjoyed.
