Joe Hunter is Hot Property These Days

For Joe Hunter fans, I've a few things to bring to your notice:

First up is that an original unpublished Joe Hunter story - HOT PROPERTY - is included in the summer edition (issue 40) of The Strand magazine, alongside an interview with Len Deighton, and brand new fiction from Michael Palmer, John Floyd, Jonathan Rabb, and an unpublished Joseph Heller (Catch 22) story.

This Joe Hunter story was specially written on request of the magazine and comes with an original diagram by (and copyrighted to) Michael Caroll. In it Joe Hunter pays a visit to the home of a porn movie director to take away his star project. As is the norm for Hunter, things heat up rapidly.

Name Change and New Look Cover...

Some time back I wrote and published a young adult fantasy ebook called 'Deliver us from Evil' under the pen name of J A Norton. Well, I've since redesigned the book, updating it and adding a new cover, and hopefully making it a more superior product.

The ebook is now available via Kindle under the new title 'Mark Darrow and the Stealer of Souls' by Matt Hilton.

It is written in the tradition of Percy Jackson, Harry Potter and the Darren Shan books, and is aimed at older children, young adults, or indeed adults who retain the spirit of magic and adventure.

Here's the link to Amazon UK:

Remember don't buy it if you already have the previous edition called Deliver Us From Evil.

Product description:

In the tradition of Percy Jackson, Harry Potter and Darren Shan...

There is something strange going on in Larchwood, but for Mark Darrow, Shax and Amy, things are about to get stranger, and more frightening.

Skathalos the Ravager has designs on the Earth, intending taking it as his own domain, and bringing it to ruin the way he has the hidden realm he holds under his evil rule. When Shax is snatched by Skathalos it's down to Mark and Amy, and a collie dog called Rip - who is not all he seems to be - to enter the forbidding realm to save their friend and an entire race of beings from evil.

Action, adventure, and terror await the trio along a path fraught with danger and terrible creatures: Scatters, Harpies, Rock Slugs, and an army of walking creatures of dust and clay. But they are nothing compared to the monstrous Firbolg giants, The Wall of Souls, or the terrifying might of Skathalos - a demon too ferocious to remain in Hell. But face them Mark and Amy must, if they are to save Shax, the Tuatha people, and maybe even the entire Earth from the impending End of All Days.
