The Skulduggery Pleasant series has been published in 35 languages and won many awards, including the Red House Children’s Book Award and the Irish Book of the Decade. Landy says he was brought up on thrillers like The Fly and The Wolfman. Demon Road was born out of this lifelong love and incorporates elements from his favourite movies, Stephen King novels, modern urban legends and that classic sub-genre: the killer car.
