Nice books and other news

June 4th, 2011 • Posted in Book News, News |

I’ve just returned from a week in Cornwall with my family to find two very nice books waiting for me.  Check out the pic.

ECHO CITY will be available very soon in the UK from Orbit.  ECHO CITY is a gorgeous book with one of the best covers I’ve ever had, and I’m really thrilled to be published by Orbit.  Read more about it here.  This feels like a new chapter in my career, and I hope you’ll pick it up and enjoy it.  Steven Erikson says:

“Brilliantly conceived and exquisitely well written.”

And the other book is the limited and deluxe editions of THE VERY BEST OF BEST NEW HORROR, from Earthling Publications.  Earthling always produce beautiful books, and this is no exception.  In the deluxe edition there is one page that includes the signatures of Stephen King, Peter Straub, Harlan Ellison, Clive Barker, Neil Gaiman, and others.  How’s that for a lineup?  I’ve written before about how proud I am to see my novella White in this volume, and this puts icing on a very tasty cake.

I’ve had stories accepted recently in House of Fear from Solaris, and the cancer charity anthology, The Unspoken.  I’m working hard on a new novel, a screenplay, and am also awaiting some movie news which I hope to be able to share with you all soon.  Lots of exciting stuff happening — including a brand new Noreela novella — so please watch this space!

    I agree, the cover of Echo City looks amazing! Can’t wait to get my copy.

    I love everything by Stephen King. He is supposed to be the ‘master of the horror.’ Why is it that I don’t dislike anything by him, but I hate movies such as the Saw series. I thought it might be the gore, but then I realized Stephen King has much gore in many parts of his stories/movies.
