As we know, authors with books out during lockdown really need our help, even if that’s just shouting about their existence. The availability of titles here might change, but this is what I’ve previously rounded up for the month of April.
If your local bookshop has been affected by the shutdown of Gardners (a major book distributor who also runs Hive) you can still pre-order physical books from Waterstones, Foyles, Blackwell’s and Wordery. And of course there are ebooks and audiobooks to keep you going.
As always, inclusion here isn’t an endorsement and dates stated are generally for the UK print edition unless otherwise noted.
