Fifteen Unpublished Elmore Leonard Stories to be Published Posthumously

By Dianna Dilworth Comment

authorWeidenfeld & Nicolson and The Orion Publishing Group will publish fifteen previously unpublished stories by the late author Elmore Leonard.

The stories, which will be published in conjunction with HarperCollins, are slated for publication in the fall of 2015.

The works come from Leonard’s early years. Here is more detail from “Largely written during his years as a copywriter at a Detroit advertising agency, these stories find Leonard exploring far-flung locations – from the bars of small-town New Mexico to a military base in Kuala Lumpur – and unforgettable characters, several of whom recur in his published work. With razor-sharp dialogue and headlong pacing, these stories reveal a master who honed his craft from a very young age.”
