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.
