About the Author
‘Simon Bestwick is brilliant,’ the Guardian says; he thinks they’re probably mistaken, but being British, also thinks it would be very impolite to disagree. He is the author of the novels Tide Of Souls, The Faceless and Hell’s Ditch, the collections A Hazy Shade Of Winter, Pictures Of The Dark, Let’s Drink To The Dead and The Condemned and the chapbook Angels Of The Silences; his latest books are Devil’s Highway and The Feast Of All Souls. He’s been a fast food operative, an insurance salesman and a call-centre worker; all of these were horrible. When not writing, he goes for walks, watches movies and listens to music. Until recently, his hobbies also included avoiding gainful employment, but this ended in failure and he now has a job again. He lives on the Wirral with his long-suffering wife, the author Cate Gardner, and uses far too many semicolons.
