Ghost Species UK Publication Day!
I’m delighted to announce that Hodder Studio’s edition of Ghost Species is published today in the United Kingdom and Ireland. As I said when the book was published in Australia, it’s a book that matters a great deal to me, so I’m thrilled it’s finally available overseas, and I very much hope people will find something in it.
If you’d like to know more about the novel it’s already picked up one review, from Simon Ings in The Times, who described it as “perceptive and timely”, and hopefully there will be more, but I wrote about the inspiration behind it for The Guardian, and did a number of interviews (The Garrett, Kill Your Darlings, Books, Books, Books, The Wheeler Centre, Sydney Writers Festival, Byron Bay Writers Festival, Backstory). There have also been a number of reviews of the Australian edition (I particularly recommend J.R. Burgmann in Australian Book Review, Ian Mond and Gary K. Wolfe in Locus, and James McKenzie Watson in The Newtown Review of Books). Excitingly it’s also just been included in Locus‘ Recommended Reading List for 2020.
You should be able to pick the new edition up in bricks and mortar bookshops, online, or as an ebook or audiobook. You can also read an extract. And if that’s not enough, you can see me reading the opening section below.
My thanks to everybody who’s had a hand in making this happen, but in particular the team at Hodder Studio and Rogers, Coleridge and White, and I hope anybody who buys a copy finds something in it for them.
