Just when you think there’s nothing new under the sun in the world of the suspense novel, along comes one hell of a nasty spider called The Straw Men. It’s brilliantly written and scary as hell — a masterpiece.
— Stephen King

Welcome...

to the webspace of suspense novelist Michael Marshall — and his alter ego, horror and sf writer Michael Marshall Smith. Michael's work includes the New York TimesSunday Times and internationally-bestselling Straw Men thrillers, modern sf classics like Only Forward and Spares, and the recently-televised Intruders, starring Mira Sorvino, John Simm, and Millie Bobby Brown. 

Links will take you to information about the novels and short stories, a place to find eBooks, news on current projects and events, and a blog. Icons at the bottom will take you to social sites like Twitter. And why not sign up for the very occasional and totally worthwhile newsletter, too. Pictures throughout the site are taken from Michael's Instagram

It’s not the craft and skill that Michael Marshall Smith displays in his stories that I object to. It’s not the easy wit, or the comfortable way he deploys language as a weapon. It’s not even that way he can conjure people so real in so few words. It’s that, when a Mike Smith short story is over, it’s pretty much guaranteed there will be some moment, scene or revelation frozen in the back of my mind that I’ll never be able to get out of my head, not even if I scrub it with wire wool so it bleeds.
— Neil Gaiman
