Most folks who are regulars to the site will know that fellow hack, David Moody, and I are something of a double-act within the world of genre fiction. Maybe it’s our shared fascination with the end of the world, or a tendency to write about a certain grey-faced bogeyman, but for one reason or another we’ve found ourselves doing a lot of events together and, needless to say, have become very good friends over the years.
What you may not know (although I do shout about it all the time in interviews and the like) is that I first met Dave as a fan of his work. I’ve got a signed copy of Dave’s debut novel, STRAIGHT TO YOU, that’s dated April 2005 (the book itself is a first print hardback published in 1996). And while I thoroughly enjoyed it back then, the rewrite, released just today through Infected Books, is a different beast altogether.
