Who will be the publisher?
...the story derives a lot of its appeal from its sense of despair and a darkness in which the love of Eli and Oskar seems to shine with a strange and disturbing light.

This part is a bit tricky. This is what I've been able to find from a very reliable source. At this point it is still unknown who will publish "Himmelstrand" (which may be renamed "I Am Behind You") in UK. It may be Quercus ....or it may be someone else. Something weird is cooking.

Himmelstrand will be published by Text Publishing Melbourne in June 2016, and as far as I know by Quercus in the UK / USA. Title will probably be 'Behind You'. John suggested 'He's Behind You!', but the publisher thought non-UK audiences wouldn't get the pantomime reference.

I've just translated a short story called The Keeper's Companion which will be out in a collection by Cemetery Dance Publications later this year.

Good to know so many people love John's work!

Just a reminder that you can finally get the book here in the states now.
It's been such a long wait I'd completely forgot it went on sale last month.

It's on Audible as well.
