Kim Newman announces new book Something More Than Night

Prolific genre author Kim Newman has announced his latest novel Something More Than Night, set for release on 2nd November 2021 from Titan Books.

Hollywood, the late 1930s. Raymond Chandler writes detective stories for pulp magazines. Boris Karloff plays monsters in the movies. Both understand that these streets are dark with something more than night.

Under Home House, the mock gothic mock mansion of a film mogul, is a mad science dungeon just like in the movies – where an experiment has gone dangerously wrong, or even more dangerously right.

Joh Devlin, an investigator for the District Attorney’s office enlists Ray and Billy – Raymond Chandler and William Pratt (Boris Karloff) – to work the case, which threatens to expose Hollywood’s most horrific secrets.

Described by Neil Gaiman as “compulsory reading,” Kim Newman is an iconic influence on British horror and in this latest it is clear to see why. Bringing his own slant to the golden age of cinema Newman shows once again why he is the master of subverting the genre and creating a tale that will take you places you will never see coming.

Whether you are a fan from his previous fiction works,which include the Anno Dracula and Drearcliff School series, his extensive film critic career, or are just discovering him, Something More Than Night is a classic Newman read.

Something More Than Night by Kim Newman is released on 2nd November 2021 from Titan Books.
