The James Herbert Award

The publisher Tor UK (an arm of Pan Macmillan) and the family of the late James Herbert have instituted an award for horror novels written in English. The first award winner is be announced in March. Here is the shortlist, and I'm delighted to say that it contains a novel I've actually read. Even better, I gave it a decent review. Phew.


M.R. Carey, THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS (Orbit)

Nick Cutter, THE TROOP (Headline)

Frances Hardinge, CUCKOO SONG (Macmillan)

Andrew Michael Hurley, THE LONEY (Tartarus Press)

Josh Malerman, BIRD BOX (Harper Voyager) 

Kim Newman, AN ENGLISH GHOST STORY (Titan Books)


It's great to see a new author like Andrew Hurley up alongside an old stager like Kim Newman. Best of luck to Andrew and Tartarus.
