His published novels are Clear Water (2006) and The Heritage (2008), both with Faber and Faber. His third novel, work, was supposed to be published by 3:AM Press in 2010, the new publishing arm of 3:AM Magazine, alongside works from authors such as Steve Aylett. On July 16, 2010, Ashon released the book 3:AM were meant to be publishing ("work") plus two others in a zip file, containing each book in an .epub and .pdf format, citing the influence (perhaps slightly facetiously) of grime musician Wiley, who had recently given away all the music on his hard drive in a series of zip files. The "Zip Trilogy," as Ashon called it, consists of three books: 'Monsterboy,' 'work' and 'After The Non-Event'. 'Monsterboy' is a short, surreal novella apparently about Mike Tyson's mother in the afterlife. 'work' outlines the life and ultra-violent re-death of an illegal alien in an unnamed country, written in broken, lowercase English. 'After The Non-Event' (subtitled 'A Comedy'), perhaps the most conventional of the three, follows twenty years in the life of Simon, a member of an unnamed cult, from the moment when the "Event" the group has been waiting for fails to take place.
