We’re pleased to announce that Wayne Simmons has officially joined the Infected Books team. Wayne will be taking responsibility for much of the marketing and promotion of the IB catalogue, a role which will be increasingly important given the ambitious plans we have to expand the Infected empire in 2015 and beyond.
Of course, Wayne’s no stranger to these parts, having already been published by IB. His brutal noir novella GIRL IN THE BASEMENT has been a huge hit for us. You’ll also know him from his previous novels including FLU, DROP DEAD GORGEOUS, and PLASTIC JESUS (which the Guardian described as “a stunning read, but not for the faint hearted“). Wayne’s also the driving force behind SCARdiff – a new horror expo which takes place in Cardiff each October. It’s only two years old, but SCARdiff’s already earned itself a place on the discerning horror fan’s annual calendar.
IB head honcho David Moody said, “I’m thrilled to have Wayne on board with IB. We’ve been good friends for a long time and have similar views on genre and publishing as a whole. I’m looking forward to us working together more formally, and seeing just how far we can spread the infection!”
