Alex Davis, Literature Officer at QUAD, said: ‘Putting together the line-up each year for Edge-Lit is no small task, but I’m delighted with how this year has shaped up. We’ve had great support from publishers – as well as individual writers – to put together what I think is the best roster of talent at an Edge-Lit yet. It’s bound to help make this an unmissable day of genre fiction!’
