The first three novels I wrote--horror thrillers Next, After Lucifer; Adversary; and Cast Angels Down To Hell--were published between 1987-90, and were out of print from then until their re-release in February, 2012. I had a great time writing them, and while I went on to authoring mainstream thrillers during later years, I always hoped to make these three available again. Now, finally, they are, both as trade paperbacks and ebooks.They're supernatural, with ancient evil and magic invading the lives of modern characters; they rely more on suspense and creeping dread than gore, although that's there when called for, and they're not shy about sex. After twenty-plus years, I think they still hold up well, and in terms of what they aim to do and how they go about it, I don't know of anything else quite like them.Please visit my website (EvilAwakens.com) for more information about these books, and an in-depth look at the experience of writing them--the story behind the stories.From the Inside Flap:
"Creating a believable villain is the hardest work in the artistic world . . . which makes Neil McMahon's success . . . so stunning . . . In McMahon's assured hands, the duel between the rational, scientific doctor and the fascinating, frightening Freeboot . . . is an absolutely riveting read." (Revolution No. 9)Chicago Tribune"Neil McMahon's thrillers have the precision of a surgeon's scalpel. To The Bone is a tautly written mystery embedded with characters as real as the surprises are many."Michael Connelly"McMahon has now found his true voice with the splendid and suspenseful novel . . . It is the poignant and knowing prose that elevates this novel to literature." (Lone Creek)Otto Penzler, New York Sun"McMahon's stellar stand-alone offers a cunning technological twist worthy of the late Michael Crichton . . . (McMahon) easily makes a scientific concept plausible in a pulse-pounding read that doesn't sacrifice intelligence for thrills." (L.A. Mental)Publishers Weekly"Reading Dead Silver is like discovering that the great Raymond Chandler wrote a mystery about Montana."James Patterson"McMahon is a writer and a half . . . his words carry for miles." (Lone Creek)New York Times Book Review
