By then, the plot will have kicked in, and the characters will be interacting, and that's where you learn about more than well-turned sentences. You're picking up the long game of story.(less)

My next two novels will be out in the US in 2015 and 2016 courtesy of publisher Angry Robot. Hopefully a US publisher for The Red Men will emerge around then.

“Exhaustion is a thin blanket tattered with bullet holes.”
Matthew De Abaitua, If Then

“Humans make tools. Some animals make tools too. The making and using of tools is important for developing language, how we think and speak. If we do not make anything, it affects our thinking.”
Matthew De Abaitua, If Then

“Horror is the awakening of repressed knowledge, something that you have known all along but kept at the periphery of awareness so that life can go on.”
