Hi folks,

I promised I'd drop by here and start a thread, so here goes...

My name's Gary McMahon and I'm an alcoholic...whoops, sorry; wrong meeting.  :)

I'm the author of a fistful of short stories, novels and novellas, have been nominated for several BFS awards, and my next two novels PRETTY LITTLE DEAD THINGS and DEAD BAD  THINGS will be published by Angry Robot/HarperCollins.

Be good to chat with people here. If you want to know anything, just ask. And I'll try my best to post links to updates and developments as they happen.

As we all now know, Humdrumming has gone bust, so if anyone would like to buy a copy of the gorgeous limited hardcover of my novel Rain Dogs for half the RRP (plus postage) check out my website:

I hate doing this to people who've already paid full price for the book, but I desperately need to recoup some lost royalties.

Hurry. They're selling fast...  :o

Hi folks,

I thought you might like to know that my debut novel RAIN DOGS is available for preorder now, for the absurdly low price of ?15:

The novel is a signed limited hardback edition (200 copies only) , with gorgeous wraparound arwork on the boards and a different design on the dustjacket - truly a beautiful thing. An introduction has been provided by the great Conrad Williams, and I urge anyone interested to take advantage of this offer, and after May 3rd you'll pay the full price of ?20.

Thanks for your time.   :)

Just to let folk know, my short story collection "Dirty Prayers" is available now from Gray Friar Press:

The book contains 25 stories, over half of them original to the collection, with several that received Honourable Mentions, along with the BFS-recommended "Like a Stone".  There's also a brand new novelette that's my love letter to Arthur Machen.

All this for ?7.99: a bargain!  ;D

Pendragon Press / Rough Cut by Gary McMahon
« on: September 27, 2006, 08:06:02 pm »
Just a quick thank you to all who bought my novella ROUGH CUT at the weekend...and for anyone else, the book is available via Pendragon Press, and all the usual outlets.




"A compelling search for a lost film and then rises to heights of visionary horror. Richly atmospheric, it builds on classic terrors to reveal new ones. Its sense of a haunted landscape is worthy of the greats." --Ramsey Campbell

"An unguided tour through the secret history of the British horror film, in which its stock elements ? inverted crucifixes, exposed breasts, fake blood ? are revealed as a mask for something far more disturbing. McMahon prowls the backstreets of trash cinema and weird fiction with his own private agenda. His writing is fierce, intelligent and mood-swingy. Like a signet ring, this story will leave its mark on you." --Joel Lane

Just a quick message to thank everyone for my story, LIKE A STONE, being recommended for this year's award Best Short Story. Some stiff sompetition in there, and I certainly don't expect to win, but the recommendation is an honour in itself.
