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'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: "Pan Macmillan has a tradition of publishing great British horror and so we’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’t wait to see what nightmare scenarios he comes up with next to chill his readers."<br /><br />Nevill said: "It'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."
