Lemony Snicket to publish new series

Little, Brown Books for Young Readers announced this afternoon that they will be publishing a new four-book series for teens by Lemony Snicket—his first since the phenomenally successful A Series of Unfortunate Events—as well as a YA novel from Daniel Handler, Snicket’s alter ego. “I was distressed to learn that Little Brown Books for Young Readers would also be offering the works of Lemony Snicket and have insisted that my book be published first.  No one knows better than I that his writing delves into dangerous material, and inspires a spectrum of villainous reaction. In fact, I think I hear a nefarious knocking at the door right now!” Handler said. Handler’s novel is due out in 2011; the first Snicket, in 2012.
