The Hobcast Book Show

Episode 28: Harrogate Festival special - featuring Ian Rankin, Mark Billingham and S J Parris

July 26, 2021

It's back! The Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival survived months of uncertainty to return to Harrogate in spectacular fashion, and the Hobcast was there to join in the fun. In this week's bumper episode, we speak to the godfather of British crime fiction Ian Rankin about the challenge of finishing another writer's work. S J Parris reflects on how the pandemic has affected her creative process, and Mark Billingham reveals some of the secrets of what happens when the UK's leading crime authors meet at the bar. Plus Adrian and Rebecca speak to the inspirational Martyn Waites about his work in prisons helping inmates to find their voice. It's Hobeck Books on tour, Harrogate-style!
