The Mammoth Book of Body Horror

I’m very pleased to announce my involvement in this new anthology, out March 1st in the UK from Constable & Robinson and June in the US through Running Press. The book’s been put together by Paul Kane and Marie O’Regan, and it looks like being an absolute cracker. Just check out the stunning table of contents at the end of this post. I feel wholly inadequate being listed alongside King, Herbert, Matheson and Poe, as well as the original short stories that inspired two of my favourite films of all time (THE FLY and THE THING).

You can order it now from AMAZON.CO.UK, WATERSTONES, the BOOK DEPOSITORY and all the other usual sites.

I’ll also be taking part in a couple of events to mark the release of the book. On Saturday 10th March I’ll be at Chesterfield Library for a reading followed by a Q&A with Simon Clark and the editors. On 14th and 15th April I’ll be at alt.fiction at Phoenix in Leicester. More details about that event shortly.
