The New Year’s Honours 2011 focused on Writing and Publishing

Let’s start with someone close to the heart of many crime fiction readers, especially those who love translated crime.  An enviable record in publishing, but a pioneer when it comes to translated crime, Christopher Maclehose has been awarded the CBE.  While others concerned themselves with the identity of Top Gear’s ‘The Stig’ and the publishing world went to the courts of law, Maclehose had long been instrumental in delivering another similarly named phenomenon in the UK: Stieg Larsson.

Others in publishing in this year’s honours include:

CVO

SHAWCROSS, The Honourable William Hartley Hume, Author.

GBE

WEIDENFELD, Arthur George, Baron, Publisher. For public service.

DBE

FRASER, The Lady Antonia, C.B.E., Historian and Author. For services to Literature.

ALLFREY, Ms Ellah Wakatama. For services to the Publishing Industry.

MBE

USBORNE, Thomas Peter, Managing Director, Usborne Publishing Ltd. For services to the Publishing Industry.

Congratulations to all.
