Debut cyberthriller

New author Michael Fuchs writes to say that his debut nov­el, The Manuscript, is soon to be pub­lished as part of the Macmillan New Writing imprint. I must say that their mar­ket­ing depart­ment is mus­tard-strength keen; I reques­ted a review copy of anoth­er Macmillan book, Roger Morris’s Taking Comfort, and they sent me all the upcom­ing books. Fuchs’s book is among them, and I’ll prob­ably review it some­where.

Fuchs — that means fox, by the way; author in Zorro mask on the back cov­er; mar­ket­ing oppor­tun­ity? I think so — has cre­ated a nice web­site. One part that caught my interest was his descrip­tion of the nov­el as a philo­soph­ic­al thrill­er. Funny, because some clas­sic­al philo­sophy under­lies my own debut nov­el, but I nev­er had the balls to call it a ‘philo­soph­ic­al cyber­th­rill­er’. Sounds like Fuchs tells it like it is. No reviews of the book as yet, but you can order a copy via Amazon UK.
