She was also busy signing the new PS edition of Stephen King’s Night Shift – signing sheets designed by Dave McKean. Marie and Paul provided an afterword to this, one of King’s most famous collections (see January’s news for more details) which you can order here.

Women in Horror Month


February is Women in Horror Month, and as part of the celebration of Women in Horror, author Mark West has put a 'mixtape' of recommended stories by female authors, chosen by authors in the field, on his blog here. Marie chose an old favourite, 'The Lost Ghost', by Mary E. Wilkins-Freeman - a classic in the field, and a story Marie was delighted to be able to include in her anthology, The Mammoth Book of Ghost Stories by Women.


Behind Her Eyes, by Sarah Pinborough


Marie was delighted to be able to attend a launch party for Sarah Pinborough's new thriller from Harper Collins, Behind Her Eyes, in London last month (pictures above and below).

A Happy New Year to one and all, and we hit the ground running in 2017 with the huge news that Marie and Paul have been asked to provide an afterword for the gorgeous-looking hardback edition of Stephen King’s famous collection Night Shift (above), due to be published by PS soon.


The Lawnmower Man, Stephen King


As well as being a milestone in the genre, Night Shift was King’s first collection and brought together many of his tales that would go on to be adapted for film and television, including The Lawnmower Man (above), Graveyard Shift, Sometimes They Come Back (below), Children of the Corn and The Mangler (also below)…
