RED, Paul Kane

We hit the ground running this New Year at the Shadow Writer site with a major announcement. This from the official press release:

SST Publications is delighted to welcome bestselling and award-winning author & editor Paul Kane to its stables with a multi-book deal. The first of these publications will be Blood RED, a reprint of Paul’s 2008 horror fairytale RED (now incredibly rare) alongside its brand new sequel. The book will again feature cover art from the wonderful Dave McKean (Sandman, The Graveyard Book, Mirrormask), will be introduced by Alison Littlewood (A Cold Season, Path of Needles, The Unquiet House) and will come complete with some very special extras. The other releases include a graphic novel adaptation of Paul’s book Lunar (soon to be a motion picture) and a ‘Best of…’ collection celebrating Paul’s 20 years as a professional writer.

Paul Kane is the award-winning, bestselling author and editor of over fifty publications – including the Arrowhead trilogy (gathered together in the sellout Hooded Man omnibus, revolving around a post-apocalyptic version of Robin Hood), The Butterfly Man and Other Stories, Hellbound Hearts and The Mammoth Book of Body Horror. His non-fiction books include The Hellraiser Films and Their Legacy and Voices in the Dark, and his genre journalism has appeared in the likes of SFX, Dreamwatch and Rue Morgue. He has been a Guest at Alt.Fiction five times, was a Guest at the first SFX Weekender, at Thought Bubble in 2011, Derbyshire Literary Festival, Edge-Lit and Off the Shelf in 2012, plus Monster Mash and Event Horizon in 2013, as well as being a panellist at FantasyCon and the World Fantasy Convention. His work has been optioned and adapted for the big and small screen, including for network US television, plus his latest novels are Lunar (set to be turned into a feature film) and the Y.A. story The Rainbow Man (as P.B. Kane). He lives in Derbyshire, UK, with his wife Marie O’Regan, his family and a black cat called Mina. Find out more at his site www.shadow-writer.co.uk which has featured Guest Writers such as Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Charlaine Harris, Dean Koontz and Guillermo del Toro.’
