Feverish speculation as led to theories if the series would return after the sell outs made from the new 42nd book.
In an email sent to publishers Egmont asking if more titles from the Awdry written library were due, a brief response was given.
Marketing Manager of Egmont Publishing, Linda Beavis refused to confirm of an ending to the books but added that it may not be the last of new material from Christopher Awdry.
The most recent title was commissioned to mark the centenary of The Rev. Awdry’s birth this year.
We have no plans at present to commission a 43rd title in the series. We may consider this in the future, but it is not a part of our publishing plan for 2012.
