Shaun Hutson is a rare breed indeed, for he's a British home grown, high profile horror writer whose novels are not only in print, but whose career is visibly promoted by one of the main genre publishers. There are not too many horror writers over here who can boast of the same experience. In fact as I write, I'm trying to think of who could ... er ... James Herbert.... er.... that's it! There are, of course, many excellent horror writers in the UK right now, but the point here is about profile and publicity, not talent.
Luckily Hutson has a healthy portion of all these qualities - and this month sees his new novel Dying Word released in hardcover by Orbit. More info at the author's excellent official web site.
