Deals and Deliveries: MR. SHIVERS

As the new guy here at Orbit US, I am very pleased to announce my first acquisition: Robert Bennett’s fantastic debut, Mr Shivers. It’s a genre-bending thriller set during Great Depression, following a man searching for his daughter’s killer in a lawless West ruled by railmen and filled with the desperate poor searching for a better life. Chock-full of hobos and murder and blood, this is a truly excellent first novel that reminds all of us here at Orbit of an early Stephen King as much as the finest sort of revenge western. (Fall/Winter 09/10)

I’m very excited about this project for a lot of reasons, not least maybe they’ll let me stop mopping the floors around here and bringing Devi her margaritas to “earn my keep.”

    To anyone else seeing this, the comments that he made aren’t an exaggeration. This book is just as good as he described, if not better.

    Great eye in picking this one up, guys! :)
