  • Thy Kingdom’s Coming

    I got a present at Fantasycon last weekend; the Ebury publicity team had brought along an advance copy of the UK paperback of The Kingdom of Bones, and handed it to me at the launch of Random House’s new Del Rey imprint. It is cool. The cover is by Headdesign, who provided art for the […]

  • Bones and Bedlam

    Happy to report that The Kingdom of Bones will be published in the UK by Ebury Press in November, with The Bedlam Detective following early next year. More news on this, like covers’n’stuff, when I have it. I met with Gillian Green and Hannah Robinson yesterday and I have to say, it’s an exciting development. […]

  • Stasio on Crime

    The Bedlam Detective reviewed by Marilyn Stasio in The New York Times: “Gallagher’s detective is a man of fine character and strong principles, but he’s upstaged by the monsters he pursues. Watching Becker track down a pedophile is gratifying, but it can’t beat the sight of 20 overburdened boats hurtling through white-water rapids or Sir […]

  • The Kindness of Strangers

    They don’t sign the notices over at Kirkus Reviews so I don’t know how better to describe this one… “Gallagher has been called a horror writer, a fantasy writer, a non-fantasy writer, a writer for big screens and smaller ones, a writer whose considerable talent has enabled him to slip in and out of genres […]

  • Savage Season Interview

    From an interview just posted on the Savage Season Books website: “I’ve never consciously scheduled my career to the extent that I could say, Oh, yeah, I put this aside and focused on that. If you do this for a living then you’re relentlessly pushing to do all you can all the time in whatever […]

  • And so to Bedlam

    No, I don’t plan to quote every review I get – not least because it’s asking for trouble and an inevitable eventual slap from someone somewhere – but thanks to Pamela O’Sullivan for making my weekend with this contribution to The Library Journal. Gallagher, Stephen. The Bedlam Detective. Crown Pub. Group. Feb. 2012. c.320p. ISBN […]

  • Bernice Summerfield Did My Headshots

    Seriously. Lisa Bowerman – aka Doctor Who‘s Bernice Summerfield – is a talented portrait photographer, specialising in actors’ headshots. You’ll find numerous examples of her work in the Spotlight directory of performers. She works with traditional film negative and natural light, moving to digital for delivery. Photo credit: Lisa Bowerman Okay, so Pitt and Clooney […]

    Two more of my backlist titles are now available in eBook form. Full info on each title soon, but for the moment here are the new cover designs by Paul Drummond.
