I’m proud to announce that Tor.com will be publishing a sequel to Tade Thompson’s The Murders of Molly Southbourne. A finalist for the Shirley Jackson Award, the British Science Fiction Award, and the Nommo Award, Thompson’s spine-chilling thriller introduced Molly Southbourne, a woman cursed to spawn murderous copies of herself any time she bleeds. The New York Times praised the novella as “A bold outpouring of flesh and crisis at once horrifying and familiar.” In the second chapter, The Survival of Molly Southbourne, we follow Molly on the run, hunted at every turn by unknown dangers that push her survival skills to their limit. This acquisition deal was negotiated by Alexander Cochran of C+W.
Tade Thompson lives and works in the south of England. He is the author of the Rosewater trilogy (winner of the Nommo Award and John W. Campbell finalist), The Murders of Molly Southbourne (nominated for the Shirley Jackson Award, the British Science Fiction Award, and the Nommo Award), and Making Wolf (winner of the Golden Tentacle Award). His interests include jazz, visual arts and MMA. He is addicted to reading. Thompson had this to say about the deal:
“I’m excited to return to the world of Molly Southbourne and work with Tor.com. The reaction to The Murders of Molly Southbourne was overwhelming, and it was clear that her story was not over. I can’t wait for fans to read the latest chapter in Molly’s life.”
The second volume in Molly’s story is expected to publish in Summer 2019. You can read The Murders of Molly Southbourne right now.
