CARUS & MITCH is a compelling, unconventional page-turner. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down until I reached the end.

Tim Major lives in Oxford in the UK with his wife and son. His love of speculative fiction is the product of a childhood diet of classic Doctor Who episodes and an early encounter with Triffids. His literary heroes are John Wyndham, John Updike, Shirley Jackson, Ray Bradbury, Patricia Highsmith and Nigel Kneale. When he's not writing he works in educational publishing, so is still writing, sort of.

His first novel, You Don’t Belong Here, will be published by Snowbooks in September 2016. His short stories have featured in publications such asInterzonePerihelion and numerous anthologies.

A sad, sweet little book that does post apocalyptic at a soft, intimate level.
— Garrett Cook, author of MURDERLAND and TIME PIMP
Grim, bleak storytelling, paired with simmering tension strikes the same haunting chord as Richard Matheson’s I AM LEGEND, and the overall tone is reminiscent of ROOM by Emma Donoghue and Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery.”
— Kristin Luna, Urban Fantasy Magazine
Carus & Mitch is punchy and scary and tense and genuinely moving. The central portrait of the book’s sibling relationship captures its mixture of friction and love spot on, with heartbreaking precision. Tim Major is an exceptional writer.
— Adam Roberts, author of Jack Glass and Bête
