I mentioned last year that I’d been trying to push myself out of my comfort zone… with this commission I couldn’t have been much further from the kind of stories I usually write: different genre, different era, different setting, different pace. Daunting, yet very rewarding.
I’m very pleased to announce that my Greenland-set story A CONCURRENCE OF COINCIDENCES will appear in THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF SHERLOCK HOLMES ABROAD, published by Constable & Robinson in the UK on 2 April, and by Running Press in the US on 14 July.
Edited by the great Simon Clark, the book contains stories by Andrew Darlington; Paul Finch; Nev Fountain; Carole Johnstone; Paul Kane; Alison Littlewood; Johnny Mains; William Meikle; David Moody; Mark Morris; Cavan Scott; Denis O. Smith; Sam Stone and Stephen Volk.
In this wonderful anthology of ‘hitherto lost’ tales, the Great Detective travels to the far ends of the earth in pursuit of truth and justice.
A host of singularly talented writers present a thrilling new dimension to Holmes’s career whilst superbly capturing the spirit, style, suspense and atmosphere of Conan Doyle’s best work.
The book is already available to pre-order. Here are a few handy links: AMAZON.COM / AMAZON.CO.UK / The Book Depository / Waterstones / Barnes & Noble / Indiebound. ebook links and a full list of contents to follow shortly.
