Over at Faber Finds, the back-in-print program, works that have been reissued include a number by judge and Golden Age mystery author Cyril Hare (1900–58): Death Is No Sportsman, An English Murder, Suicide Excepted, Tenant for Death, That Yew Tree's Shade (aka Death Walks the Woods), and With a Bare Bodkin. Also reprinted: Hare's The Magic Bottle (a children's book) and The Best Detective Stories of Cyril Hare (introd. Michael Gilbert).
