It’s a beautiful day in the village of Touchstone.

Praise for Tim Major

For Machineries of Mercy

“A fun, fast-paced two-hander that switches between a creepily perfect English village and a dark vision of the cities of the near future. This imaginative tale deftly explores the dangerous results of combining technology and the punishment-for-profit industry.”
—Kate Blair, author of Tangled Planet and Transferral

For You Don’t Belong Here

“Clever, intriguing and suspenseful . . . a must-read book from a terrific new voice.”
—Alison Littlewood

“A beautifully-written, cleverly unsettling puzzle-box of a novel.”
—Adam Roberts

For Blighters

“Strongly recommended for fans of original and uniquely weird fiction.”
Ginger Nuts of Horror

For Carus & Mitch

Carus & Mitch is punchy and scary and tense and genuinely moving. Tim Major is an exceptional writer.”
—Adam Roberts

“More The Road than The Hunger Games, blending a John Wyndham-esque melancholy with a dose of existential despair, Carus & Mitch is a compelling, unconventional page-turner.”
—Lynda Rucker
