We are the Martians: The Legacy Of Nigel Kneale


Edited by Neil Snowdon. Contains my exclusive interviews with Herbert Wise and Chris Burt, director and producer of the classic Central TV production of The Woman in Black, which was scripted by Nigel Kneale.

Following financial problems at original publishers Spectral Press, We are the Martians will not now be published by that outlet. (A paperback version was launched in December 2015.) 


We are the Martians is due out imminently via PS Publishing. 

“Editor Neil Snowdon has marshalled an impressive line-up of writers and critics to create a literary monument worthy of the man he describes as ‘ground zero for the development of television drama’. The writers have turned in an eclectic and absorbing collection of essays. The book is punctuated with interviews from key players in Kneale’s life. It’s a fitting tribute to one of the most inventive writers of the 20th century.” – Paul Kirkley, SFX

We are the Martians is a finely detailed appreciation of Kneale’s work by some of the best critics, authors and screenwriters today. An exhaustive and highly enjoyable study of a true giant of British science-fiction. Essential reading for SF fans.” – Jon Towlson, Starburst 10/10
