New essay collection on John Buchan.
Pickering & Chatto has just published Reassessing John Buchan: Beyond The Thirty-Nine Steps. It is edited by University of Ghent professor Kate Macdonald, author of John Buchan: A Companion to the Mystery Fiction that I edited for McFarland. Essays examine areas such as Buchan and the Boer War, Buchan and Joseph Conrad, Buchan and the supernatural, and Buchan and Islam. Despite the collection's subtitle, there's one essay on "Tracing The Thirty-Nine Steps."
