Julie Crisp of Pan Macmillan in London acquired World Rights for two horror novels by Adam Nevill in July 2009, after a hard-fought auction. The first book, APARTMENT 16, was published in June 2010 very successfully (three reprints within six weeks of publication), and will be followed in 2011 by BEASTS.
Adam is also the author of the highly-praised novel BANQUET FOR THE DAMNED, published by PS in 2004, set in St Andrews, Scotland, which as been favourably compared with the ghost writings of M R James and has received stunning reviews in the UK and the US. His short story WHERE ANGELS COME IN was selected for both The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror, edited by Ellen Datlow, and The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror 17, edited by Stephen Jones.
Having received a BA Hons in English Literature at University College Worcester, Adam worked in broadcast TV for eight years before returning to St Andrews University (the later setting of his novel) where he received at MLit in Creative Writing.
