THE LEGACY OF TED LEWIS - Soho Press



 
With Syndicate Books taking on the re-publication of Ted Lewis's novels, beginning with the three Carter novels, there's a very good chance this overlooked British crime author will, at last, get some of the credit he deserves.
 
As Syndicate's Paul Oliver says, Lewis's influence on popular culture is to the second half of the 20th century 'what Hammett and Chandler’s was to the first half.' The full text of Paul's piece is available on the SOHO PRESS WEBSITE. It's a great pen picture of Lewis's significance to crime writing.
 
Get Carter is re-published in September, 2014. Click HERE for further information.

  3. I look forward to the book.

    Meanwhile, is there any way of obtaining a copy of "Ted's Return Home"?

    The trailer on youtube looks interesting...

    thanks Stuart Radmore

  4. Stuart, thanks for the interest. As far as I know it isn't. In truth, the trailer flatters to deceive; there were, as I remember, major issues post-production. Single Span did well to make it on a tiny budget, but I doubt it'll see the light of day.

  5. Nick, thanks for the information

    I'd assumed there was a finished product, and that it had at least one showing in Barton
