Personal Quote:

[his novel] The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a novel of childhood and memory. It's a story of magic, about the power of stories and how we face the darkness inside of us. It's about fear, and love, and death and families. But, fundamentally, I hope, at its heart, it's a novel about survival. See more »

Trivia:

His interest in comic books came after reading some of Alan Moore's work on 'Swamp Thing'. See more »

Trademark:

Writes about myths and science and horror and symbolism. See more »
