Humanity will return in

Update! Book Seven has debuted at #2 in War, #6 in Horror, and #217 on Amazon overall – a new rankings record for us. (Thank goodness! Means we're still going somewhere…)
New update! Well, pretty much the very instant I published that, I find we've already crept up into the top 500. Plus top 5 War, and Top 10 Horror. Yip!
New new update! Morning of day three: #323 overall, #3 in both Horror and War. I thought this was a new record, but Glynn says we hit 300 before.
Also: We're currently (29 NOV 2013) the #4 and #5 Amazon authors in Horror – right behind Stephen King and Dean Koontz; and just ahead of Max Brooks!

Finally… Looks like we peaked just inside the Top 250. Not so bad.

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
