I was so excited to find out today that the Ed McBain 87th Precinct Mysteries are being made available for the Kindle. Several of his books are available now and more will be out by the end of the month. The books are priced at $4.99. Paperbacks of the titles will be released in February. The books are being published by Amazon’s Thomas & Mercer imprint.
McBain is known as the father of the police procedural. For insight on McBain’s tremendous influence on writers such as Stephen King and J.A. Konrath, check out this Perspectives on Ed McBain page. Pretty amazing stuff!
