It's a little early yet, but there's already plenty of news about A Christmas Carol!
- Two new illustrated editions of the story are due out September 15: one illustrated by Yelena Bryksenkova, from Chronicle Books, and the other illustrated by Roberto Innocenti, from Creative Editions.
- I missed this when it happened in June, but Danny Kuhn has released a novel titled Fezziwig: A Life, about Scrooge's first employer. It's the first in a projected series called The Fezziwig Legacy. Here's an article that gives some plot details.
- And another new Christmas Carol-related series, Ebenezer Scrooge Mysteries, kicks off in October, when L. J. Oliver releases The Humbug Murders. This book also involves Fezziwig, or rather his ghost, who prompts Scrooge to investigate his (Fezziwig's) murder. The story will also feature characters from other Dickens works, as well as Dickens himself.
