Titan Books To Publish Adrian Barnes’ NOD on 4th March 2016


Titan Books will be publishing Adrian Barnes’ NOD on 4th March 2016 in paperback and ebook format.

Dawn breaks over Vancouver and no one in the world has slept the night before, or almost no one. A few people, perhaps one in ten thousand, can still sleep, and they’ve all shared the same golden dream.

As the days tick by, panic ensues and a bizarre new world order arises in which those previously on the fringes of society take the lead and packs of mute children haunt the streets.

Paul, a writer, continues to sleep while his partner Tanya disintegrates before his eyes and the new world swallows the old one whole.

Published by Titan Books in 2015 into the North American market to great critical and commercial success, the new UK edition of the book will also contain Barnes’ celebrated essay for the popular American news and culture website ‘The Daily Beast’: “My Cancer Is As Strange As My Fiction,” a moving autobiographical account of the overlap between the discovery of the author’s brain tumour and the US publication of Nod.

Shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke award in its first publication on a limited run from small, indie press Blue Moose Books, Nod is a masterful literary SF novel that blends Barnes’ elegant prose and skilful linguistics into a thought-provoking and highly readable narrative that comfortably sits alongside cerebral end-of-the world stories such as Jose Saramago’s Blindness, P.D. James’ The Children of Men and J.G. Ballard’s High Rise.

I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Kingdom Come: Deliverance
