Author, editor, anthologist and publisher Peter Crowther is the latest client of the John Jarrold Literary Agency.

Jarrold acquired Crowther's first original anthology, NARROW HOUSES, and its two sequels for Macdonald Futura (now Time Warner UK) in 1990, since when Crowther has been a prolific author and editor (eighteen anthologies, four story collections - including British Fantasy Award-winner LONESOME ROADS - and, in his longer work, the FOREVER TWILIGHT series and ESCARDY GAP, written in collaboration with James Lovegrove).

He set up the highly praised and multiple award-winning PS Publishing specialist press in 1998. His stories have been adapted for British TV and optioned for the big screen.

'Pete is a friend and a smashing writer,' said Jarrold. 'And a great editor and publisher. Multi-tasking might have been invented for him. I daresay he also sleeps, maybe one night in three! He is presently writing a short SF novel and a decidedly dark mainstream novel, of which I've read early sections...I can't wait for the complete book, and I welcome him to the agency.'

Contact John Jarrold by e-mail on: or by phone on 01424 440652.
