My Friend of Misery

My latest story ‘Kicks‘ is included in the newly released second anthology from Forgotten Tomb Press, featuring 48 horror tales from some of the genre’s brightest stars and up and coming names.

Miseria’s Chorale gathers together award winners, bestsellers, veterans and exciting new stars in one mammoth anthology that represents a broad definition of horror, taking readers on a journey to unspeakable realms and nightmarish self-discovery.

At 535 pages, it’s another whopping great tome and makes an ideal Christmas present for that horror fan in your life. Start adding it to your letter to Santa now people!

Madness descends!


The debut anthology from small press newcomers Forgotten Tomb is released today and includes my story ‘Rank & Defile‘.

As the title implies, 100 Doors To Madness contains new horror fiction from 100 different authors, and is available in both paperback and ebook formats.

The book itself weighs in at just under 500 pages and is well worth both the price and a place on your bedside table to keep you awake during the dark nights this winter.

Nasty Hiatus

Pendragon Press have announced that their planned regular series of mini-anthologies, entitled The Nasty Snips Project, is now on hiatus for the time being, to allow editor Chris Teague time to plan out the project a little better.

As you may remember, the first volume of the series is set to include my flash piece ‘The Perfect Woman‘, so I’ll update you with a revised publication schedule once one becomes available.

You can read Chris’ latest update and the original idea behind the project respectively over on the Pendragon site here and here.

Further Hints of Madness

Forgotten Tomb Press have confirmed the full Table of Contents for their upcoming flash fiction anthology ‘100 Doors To Madness‘, due out shortly, which contains my piece ‘Rank & Defile‘.

You can read the full list of authors and stories here.

Below is a preview of the cover art to whet your appetite and hopefully make sure you don’t ‘blow the bloody Doors off!’ *

Band Candy


My latest horror story ‘With The Band‘ is out now, in the newly released September issue of Niteblade Magazine.

Issue #25 is entitled ‘Alice Underground’ and you can download it in various ebook formats from either the Niteblade Shop or

This one’s a bit of a mini-milestone for me, as it’s my 20th publication. The last four years have gone by so quickly, I find myself wishing I’d written more than I have.

Time to redouble my efforts for the next four years then!


Postcard from the edge

Due to unforseen circumstances, Angelic Knight Press have reset the release date for their upcoming ‘No Place Like Home‘ anthology to 13th August, which means you’ll just have to wait a couple more months to get your hands on this collection of nightmarish visions of the near future.

In the meantime though, they’ve released this snazzy postcard as a reminder for the new release date, and will be distributing promotional material whilst at the World Horror Convention (13-16th June), including posters, bookmarks and even t-shirts.


Update: The anthology is now pushed back to a September launch. Exact date TBC.

Out Of The Shadows

OUT TODAY: The ‘Shadow Masters‘ anthology from The Horror Zine is now available from Imajin Books.

Below, as promised, is the full cover reveal, and a Table of Contents to whet your appetite. As you can see, award-winning editor Jeani Rector has assembled some serious talent in these pages.

If you’re quick, you can grab an e-copy from Amazon for the bargain price of £0.77.

Details of the various outlets you can buy the anthology from are listed over on the Publications Page.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to attend an online launch party (I just hope the booze isn’t electronic as well!).
