Two by Lebbon for Titan

Two by Lebbon for Titan

Titan Books has acquired two novels by Tim Lebbon, the author of the publisher's "The Cabin in the Woods" novelisation.

Fiction editor Cath Trechman acquired world English rights via Caspian Dennis at Abner Stein (UK) and Howard and Morhaim (US).

The Silence is a novel about the end of the world, and "perhaps the beginning of another"—it follows one family and their friends as they struggle to survive in a world overrun by ravenous creatures.

Titan will also publish Lebbon's novel Coldbrook in the US, a science-fiction novel in which scientists discover a gateway to a new world.

Lebbon won the Bram Stoker Award in 2001 for his short story Reconstructing Amy.
