It has been almost two months since we announced plans to release Back to Frank Black the book, so we figured it was about time we checked in with you all to give you something of a status update.
Rest assured that work continues apace on the volume. One thread of this is a whole array of essays considering aspects of Millennium such as character studies of Frank Black, consideration of the representations of evil across the series, its use of music, its place in the canon of crime fiction… and much, much more.
As well as this range of critical essays, we are working on having as much involvement from the cast and crew of the series as possible. Interviews conducted by the campaign will be presented in an entirely new way as comprehensive articles that reveal as much about the craft of actors, writers, producers and directors as they do about Millennium itself. Additionally we will be including as much brand new and exclusive material as possible.
By way of an example, the latest such inclusion to the book is a very personal reflection on her time playing Jordan Black from Brittany Tiplady, who is now a journalist. This is a unique and wonderful look back from Brittany, and we are very proud to be able to present it to you all in the finished volume.
Currently we anticipate a Spring 2012 release date for the book, although we will of course revise this and keep you posted as we go. Check back here or over at the Fourth Horseman Press blog for further updates. Just rest assured that we are utterly committed to making this book the very best tribute to and celebration of Millennium as it can possibly be, and we can’t wait to be able to share it with you all next year.
