Abaddon Books began after the entertainment company Rebellion bought 2000 AD in the year 2000. They suddenly reaslised that they now had a publishing arm and thus Abaddon Books was born. Abaddon Books is dedicated to publishing the very best science-fiction, fantasy and horror novels and often create shared universes which their authors can base their stories on.
Their fiction tends to sway away from the shiny happy to a more gritty realism where the good guys don't always win and pretty much anything can happen (and often does).
The novel School's Out Forever by Scott K Andrews is a very good example of this. Set in the post-apocalyptic shared universe known as the Afterblight Chronicles, this omnibus won our "Book of the year" in 2012 for it's emotional attachment, incredible story and dark realism.
Who is more to be pitied, a writer bound and gagged by policemen or one living in perfect freedom who has nothing more to say?
