Alexander McCall Smith fans know how prolific an author he is.  This Zimbabwe-born (then Rhodesia) Scottish writer has published 50 books, including several delightful series, and shows no signs of slowing down.

Among McCall Smith's popular series is 44 Scotland Street, which debuted in 2005 and has 8 published books thus far...and book 9 being on for details...

44 Scotland Street (44 Scotland Street Series #1)
44 Scotland Street, first book in the series
Prior to publication, books in the 44 Scotland Street series appeared as daily entries in The Scotsman newspaper. The newest addition, Book 9 in the series, is now appearing in daily installments in the The Scotsman.  Fans of young Bertie, Big Lou, and all the other eccentric residents of Scotland Street and their Edinburgh neighbors can read along now, rather than waiting for the novel to be published in book format at its conclusion. Serialization began this week on Monday, January 7, with four installments to date.  You can begin by reading the first  Volume 9, Episode 1.
