Pan Mac buys two more from Nevill

Pan Macmillan has acquired a further two horror novels by British author Adam Nevill.<br /><br />Editorial director Julie Crisp bought world rights from agent John Jarrold, for a very good five-figure sum. The two new titles are as yet untitled and will be published in 2012 and 2013. Nevill&#39;s last novel, <em>Apartment 16</em>, was published in May with his next, <em>The Ritual</em>, scheduled for publication next year.<br /><br />Crisp said: &quot;Pan Macmillan has a tradition of publishing great British horror and so we&rsquo;re thrilled to be working with Adam on his next two books. Apartment 16 and The Ritual were both terrifying and exciting adventures into the macabre and I can&rsquo;t wait to see what nightmare scenarios he comes up with next to chill his readers.&quot;<br /><br />Nevill said: &quot;It&#39;s genuinely a wondrous thing to receive another opportunity to create original works of disquiet, that will be given flight by the engines of a major publisher.&quot;
