The author of the Hyouka light novel series announced on Twitter that he plans to release a new light novel volume to his Koten-bu series of mystery light novels in November. It is said that the new volume will collect previously published short stories for the series. This will include “Renpou wa Hareteiru ka?”, “Kagami ni wa Utsuranai”, Nagai Kyuujitsu” and “Ima Sara Tsubasa o Iwaretemo”. The upcoming volume will be the sixth in the series with the fifth one originally releasing in 2010 under the title “Futari no Kyori no Gaisen. The light novel series first released October 31st 2001 and also released a manga that started on January 26th 2012 and is still ongoing. Later the series would get a 22 episode anime adaption by KyoAni that released between April 23rd 2012 and September 17th 2012. Finally a plot summary of the series can be seen below quoted from MAL:

Energy-conservative high school student Houtarou Oreki ends up with more than he bargained for when he signs up for the Classics Club at his sister’s behest—especially when he realizes how deep-rooted the club’s history really is. Begrudgingly, Oreki is dragged into an investigation concerning the 45-year-old mystery that surrounds the club room.
Accompanied by his fellow club members, the knowledgeable Satoshi Fukube, the stern but benign Mayaka Ibara, and the ever-curious Eru Chitanda, Oreki must combat deadlines and lack of information with resourcefulness and hidden talent, in order to not only find the truth buried beneath the dust of works created years before them, but of other small side cases as well.
Based on the award-winning Koten-bu light novel series, and directed by Yasuhiro Takemoto of Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu, Hyouka shows that normal life can be full of small mysteries, be it family history, a student film, or even the withered flowers that make up a ghost story.
