His first novel as M.R.Carey, The Girl With All The Gifts was nominated for an award by the British Fantasy Society and is now being made into a film with Glenn Close, Gemma Arterton and Paddy Considine.

Fellside by Mike CareyMike will be at Write Blend in Liverpool to launch his eagely anticipated new novel Fellside, published by Orbit Books, on the day of its publication.

 Fellside is a maximum security prison on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors. It’s not the kind of place you’d want to end up. But it’s where Jess Moulson could be spending the rest of her life.

It’s a place where even the walls whisper.

And one voice belongs to a little boy with a message for Jess.

Will she listen?

Speaking with regards to Mike’s Waterstone’s signing and the Birmingham Comics Festival, Paul H Birch commented: “I am delighted to be working with Waterstones to promote this event, and look forward to developing the festival’s relationship with them and a number of other special parties in the future.”
