My contribution is “The Plague of Gentlemen”, an apocalyptic comedy of manners of which I’m enormously fond and proud. And it’s amazing to be in the company of writers whose novels I grew up reading such as Stephen Laws, Graham Masterton, Simon Clark and Ramsey Campbell, as well as my current genre faves.

This looks like being a blinding tome of tricks, and you can pre-order a copy here.
