Mainstream plans e-book series for Carlo

<p>Mainstream author Philip Carlo has died after suffering from muscle-atrophying disease ALS. The publisher will be launching an e-book programme led by Carlo&#39;s books early in the new year.</p><p>Carlo&#39;s final work, <em>The Killer Within&mdash;In the Company of Monsters</em>, detailed his attempts to come to terms with the illness while continuing to write. He had written four books published by Mainstream, all non-fiction works on mass murderers. He was represented in the UK by Abner Stein.</p><p>Bill Campbell, Mainstream joint m.d. and publisher, said: &quot;Philip&#39;s death, though not unexpected, came as a major blow to all who were in contact with him. His continued fight against this dreadful disease represented a triumph of spirit shown by the fact that he continued to write as his health deteriorated. When he died he was working on his latest book<em> The Prince of Cocaine</em>, scheduled for publication by Mainstream in July next year.&quot;</p><p>Carlo died in New York on 8th November.
