Best of Lists 2016

AR 2016Well, 2016 was a busy old year for us, what with publishing many wonderful, wonderful books, continuing to take over the world, offering human sacrifices to the gods, that kind of thing.

It seems our sacrifices haven’t gone unnoticed as we have found our books placed in a whole load of ‘best of 2016’ lists, which has, quite honestly, made out 2017 thus far.

We’d like to say a big thank you

First up, the much anticipated The Cormorant, the third in Chuck Wendig’s fantastic Miriam Black series.

Count me in.” If this has whet your appetite, both
