Coronation Street is the world's longest running soap, and it's still running ! However, in all that time (it started in 1960), very few novels have been published. Three paperback novels were published by Mayflower Books in the 1970s, some of which were re-published in hardback format by White Lion Books in 1977. Three further novels were published by Granada Books, set during the second world war when many of the older characters were youngsters. In 2003 a new novel was published by Granada titled 'The Epic Novel' by Katherine Hardy, a novelisation of the first forty years of the soap. This book was re-published in 2004 with the new title of 'The Complete Saga' and re-printed in 2008 with a new cover. 2017 saw the start of a new series of war-time Coronation Street novels, written by Maggie Sullivan and published in hardback by Harper Collins Books. To date two novels have been published.

To my knowledge, that is all that was published by way of original books or novelisations of this soap. Many reference books were published and this gallery only includes those in my collection.
