Podcast: Sixteen Horses author and No Man's Sky writer Greg Buchanan

A thriller.

It's all going on for Greg Buchanan. His still-warm thriller novel Sixteen Horses looks destined to become one of the books of the year, having filled window displays at Waterstones stores around the UK for the paperback launch in February. I've read it and it's brilliant; dark, disturbing, fearsomely intelligent and utterly compelling. I couldn't put it down.

Such is the popularity of the book that it's going to be adapted for TV. And there will be a follow-up book called Consumed that he's writing right now. And he has a deal for a third, standalone, unrelated book he's also writing right now, as a kind of creative relief from Consumed.

But that's not all Buchanan has got going on. He recently announced he will be one of the writers on the new Dark Souls tabletop RPG. It's - as I find out in this episode of The Eurogamer Podcast - one of his favourite series of games, and he has a lot of interesting things to say about it (and Elden Ring).
