We're delighted to announce that Andrew McMillan will be stepping in as a Guest PBS Selector for Summer 2019. Andrew will join Sandeep Parmar as one of our expert Book Selectors in place of Vidyan Ravinthiran, whose second collection is due out from Bloodaxe next Summer. We look forward to working with Andrew again and seeing his and Sandeep's selections in the New Year.
