I'm delighted to announce that the fabulous Abaddon Books have commissioned me to write a zombie novel for their exciting TOMES OF THE DEAD series of paperback originals. This will be my first mass market release, so I'm obviously thrilled to be writing it.
Hungry Hearts is a stand-alone story set in the north of England during a zombie apocalypse. I don't want to give too much away regarding the plot, but rather than examine the large-scale effects of the dead rising to feast upon the living, my novel will focus right in on three very damaged characters and their, well, truly weird love triangle...
Expect madness, mayhem and the usual McMahon bleakness. Oh, and zombies. Thousands of 'em.
Secondly, here's the first review I've seen of The Year's Best Fantasy & Horror 21, and my contribution is highlighted as one of the reviewer's favourites:
