Podcast: Sixteen Horses author and No Man's Sky writer Greg Buchanan

A thriller.

It's all going on for Greg Buchanan. His still-warm thriller novel Sixteen Horses looks destined to become one of the books of the year, having filled window displays at Waterstones stores around the UK for the paperback launch in February. I've read it and it's brilliant; dark, disturbing, fearsomely intelligent and utterly compelling. I couldn't put it down.

Such is the popularity of the book that it's going to be adapted for TV. And there will be a follow-up book called Consumed that he's writing right now. And he has a deal for a third, standalone, unrelated book he's also writing right now, as a kind of creative relief from Consumed.
