I can now reveal that I’ve sold my novella The Murders of Molly Southbourne to Tor.com.
The announcement is here:
“I made the mistake of opening The Murders of Molly Southbourne late one evening, and found myself so horrified and enraptured that I couldn’t stop reading. Hours later, the book completed, I remained haunted by the poignant and terrifying visions Thompson had conjured before my eyes. I’m proud to have acquired his novella for Tor.com, and for the opportunity to inflict on the readers what I experienced myself.”

“Let me tell you that I loved it, loved its hilarious vision of an Earth taken over by aliens who then apologise profusely.”
Which is kind of nice.
