Tim will be at Fantasycon in Nottingham this weekend where Borrowed Time will be launched, along with the 2nd Spectral Book of Horror stories.
He’ll be around all weekend but if you want to catch the launches or a panel appearance then his timetable is as follows:-
Friday 7pm: PS Publishing launch (for the novella trilogy Borrowed Time, among lots of other great books)
Saturday 11am: Panel – Monster Mash-up
Saturday 1pm: Spectral launch of the 2nd Spectral Book of Horror Stories.
In other news tomorrow Predator:Incursion really will be launched, all details on the book page here.
Pay the Ghost is out in the UK on Oct 26th
Finally the Assassin Novellas are being re-released by Tor.Com First up is “Pieces of Hate” which as a bonus will contain the original first novella “Dead Man’s Hand”. A link to the full announcement is here.
Apologies the Predator:Incursion release was delayed at the last minute. It will be out in the UK and US on the 20th October.
In better news I can announce that Tim will have a new collection out at FantasyCon. PS Publishing will be releasing BORROWED TIME a collection of the three PS novellas that together comprise the Apocalypse Trilogy – Naming of Parts, Changing of Faces and Shifting of Veils. It comes with a new intro by Tim and new, short connecting pieces between the novellas. It’ll be fantastic seeing these stories in one volume. Paperback available from PS Publishing.
Also to be released at FantasyCon will be THE 2ND SPECTRAL BOOK OF HORROR STORIES featuring a new story – FLOTSAM – from Tim. There will be a book launch for this at 1pm on Saturday 24th October at FantasyCon where Tim and a number of other authors will be signing copies. More details on the book can be found at the Spectral Website, here.
I’ll add a list of signings and panels Tim will be involved in at FantasyCon nearer the time, but failing that I suspect you will be able to find him in the bar.
Finally for the list of new releases, an Audiobook of “The Silence” is now available. Listen to it quietly, details here.
The Hunt is coming out in Paperback this Thursday so you will be able to find it in bookshops and Supermarkets as well as online.
Ordering links here.
If you would like a signed copy but don’t want to hang around the sports drinks section of Welsh Supermarkets then there is a book launch for “The Hunt” on Saturday 18th July – 1pm at Waterstones Swansea
There may also be a signing at Abergavenny, more details when I have them.
THE HUNT is out in ebook today from Avon/HarperCollins in the UK.
This is a really important book for me, perhaps the most important of my career, and I’m eager to hear what readers think of it. It’s the first non-supernatural, non-fantastical novel I’ve ever written. It is also perhaps my most fast-paced book, inspired as it is by my love of endurance sports.
The mighty Lee Child says, ‘A great thriller … breathless all the way.’ Not bad, eh?
I hope you’ll pick it up, either in ebook or paperback (paperback release is 16th July, you’ll see it everywhere).
Ordering links here.
The ebook for “The Hunt” is out in the UK on Thursday. The paperback release follows in a month.

The book launch is at Forbidden Planet in London at 1pm on Saturday, full details are here.

Finally if you are keen to spend more money, there is now a book page for “The Hunt” with the synopsis and pre-order links. The Ebook is due on June 18th, with the Paperback to follow on July 16th. You can find all the details here.
Happy Easter everyone.
The Silence is released in two weeks time. The book page has been updated with pre-order links for paperbacks and ebooks, along with reviews and an exclusive extract. Don’t forget there is a book launch at Forbidden Planet in London on Saturday April 18th, full details here.
This will be followed by a launch in Wales. Head to the Abergavenny Bookshop on Saturday 2nd May at Noon and probably a pub afterwards.
Tim has signed a deal with Avon (Harper Collins) for two original crime thrillers. The first will be “The Hunt” heavily influenced by Tim’s love of endurance sports, is set for release in digital format in June, and paperback in July.
From the press release:
Editorial Director, Eleanor Dryden says, ‘THE HUNT is the most pulse-pounding, suspenseful and intense page-turner I’ve read for a long time. It’s a simple, terrifying concept, with action and drama so gripping you have to remind yourself to breathe. I apologise in advance for the sleep you’re likely to miss once you pick up this fresh, top-notch thriller! I am incredibly excited to be publishing Tim and a book that I feel strongly deserves the accolade of best British thriller of 2015.’
There is also the first book in a new series due soon, I don’t know if I can tell you about it yet, but as it is Easter I’ve (not very well) hidden a picture on this page !
New Short Stories
“The Doll Collection” edited by Ellen Datlow contains the story “Skin and Bone”
“Seize the Night” edited by Christopher Golden contains the story “May the End be Good”
Happy 2015 everyone, some exciting releases ahead this year but I can’t talk about those yet so instead details of the book launch for The Silence

Then afterwards at “The Spice of Life” pub in Soho, details and directions here
Be great to see you all at the shop or in the pub.
It’s been a while! And that’s because although I have new book deals to announce, I still can’t quite announce them yet. As soon as the ink’s dry I’ll reveal what they are, but I’m very excited … an exciting deal for two thrillers, a major new tie-in project, and a trilogy that’s something a little different for me. Lots of good stuff happening over the next few years, so I’ll talk more about that soon.
Good news is that PAY THE GHOST finished shooting in Toronto, and a teaser poster has just been released (see below). The movie of my short story stars Nicolas Cage and Sarah Wayne Callies, and is directed by Uli Edel. More soon!
I also have a short story in the huge (700 pages!) new anthology, Dead Harvest. You can order from the Cemetery Dance website.
My spooky animated kids’ film MY HAUNTED HOUSE is in development, and there’ll hopefully be more on that soon. You can download a special MY HAUNTED HOUSE app. Fun for kids and adults. I’ll pass on more info as this movie progresses, but it’s going to be lots of fun.
In other movie news, EXORCISING ANGELS, written with Simon Clark, continues to be developed as a movie, and the script I wrote with the splendid Stephen Volk, PLAYTIME, is also in development.
I’m working on plenty of other projects, including a couple of TV series pitches. And as the end of November–the 8th anniversary of me going full-time as a writer–draws near, I’ve never been busier.
Oh, and next year I’ll be doing another ironman.
It’s Fantasycon this weekend and Tim will be in attendance. You can catch him bright and early on a panel at 10am Saturday morning.
Does Anyone Get Out of Here Alive?
Can there be hope in Horror, or are unrelieved despair and gore the essence of the genre?
He will also be at the PS Publishing book launch at 5pm on Saturday where amongst many other titles “Shifting of Veils” will be released. For those of you who won’t be in York you can pre-order now from PS Publishing. There is an unsigned edition or a 100 copy signed hardcover. All details on the book page here.
Some other news to catch up with.
