“By The Pricking Of Her Thumb” Cover Reveal

By Adam Roberts | May 19, 2018
Categories: Book News

The designers and artists at the mighty Blacksheep studio have, once again, done me proud. That's the cover to the sequel to Real-Town Murders: also set in future-Reading, another impossible murder for Alma to investigate, this time parsing Kubrick rather than Hitchcock. Now: I know I never write sequels, that I do something new each time I publish a novel. But it occurred to me that, never having written a sequel to any of my books, writing a sequel to one of my books would be doing something new. In this manner I aim to keep one step ahead of myself, going forward.

    So will you write another sequel because you've never did a trilogy, or will you stop at two?

    He'll do Welles next time.

    In the new book, does the Shine become the Shining? :)

    Roman: I have ideas for a third book, but we'll have to see how these two do first.

    Paul: since I was thinking of moving from Hitchcock to Kubrick, I called the Shine with that in mind. Foreshadowing, you see.

    James: Thank you! You've done such brilliant work for my novels over the years ...
