Double the Horror

The second of my horror stories out for Halloween, ‘From Chatterton Hill‘,  is now available over at Screaming Dreams as part of the bumper seasonal issue of Estronomicon.

It’s free to read and can be downloaded here.

Happy Halloween to all!

End of the line for SW&W

The more eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that the forthcoming link for my piece ‘Unfinished‘ no longer features on the Publications page.

This is due to the sad closure of the Indiana-based magazine, Strange, Weird & Wonderful, and is yet another reminder of how hard the Publishing industry is faring in the continuing recession. I wish DLR and his team every success in their future endeavours and thanks for taking the time to consider my work.

Hopefully the story will get picked up elsewhere in the coming months.

Something fishy

For those of you looking for some horror this Halloween, my latest offering, ‘Fish Out Of Water‘, is now available as part of the ‘Midnight Movie Creature Feature‘ anthology from May December Publications.

The book is out now on Kindle, priced £6.47 in the UK and can be ordered as a hard copy version on

And if that’s not enough horror for you, Severed Press’s ‘Zombie Zoology‘ anthology, featuring my story, ‘Why The Wild Things Are‘, is now on special offer at only £2.14 for Kindle. So why not double up and download a copy at the same time for twice the scares.

(Watch this space for yet more horror before the end of the month)

Heads up

My story, ‘From Chatterton Hill‘, will shortly be featuring in the Halloween issue of Estronomicon over at Screaming Dreams Press.

I’ll post the download links once its online.

Now Available

The British Fantasy Society’s 40th Anniversary Anthology, ‘Full Fathom Forty‘, is now available to buy and features my story ‘Eater Of Lost Causes‘.

Copies can be purchased from either Amazon or The Book Depository, as well as from the BFS itself. For those interested, I recommend buying directly from the BFS, though I am entirely biased. It’s a bit more expensive but they have better availability and 100% of the money goes to the Society.

The book itself is a mammoth 500 pages and features stories from some of the best authors in the business:-

Graham Masterson, Ramsey Campbell, Mike Barrett, Stephen Gallagher, Nina Allan, Joel Lane, Christopher Fowler, Jasper Kent, Sam Stone, Kim Newman, Conrad Williams, Simon Clark, Suzanne Barbieri, Stephen Laws, John Llewellyn Probert, Murray Ewing, Ian Hunter, Deborah Walker, Jonathan Carroll, Jan Edwards, Martin Owtin, Tina Rath, Robert Shearman, Wilf Kelleher Jones, Cate Gardner, Adrian Chamberlin, Cas Peace, Stan Nicholls, Geoff Nelder, Jim Steel, Matthew Fryer, R B Harkness, Raven Dane, Paul Finch, Mark Lewis, Alison J Littlewood, Steve Lockley, Peter Mark May and Steven Savile.

Full details of links and pricing can be found on the Publications page.

For Terri

The Fall issue of Dark Gothic Resurrected magazine is out now and includes my story ‘Things Lost In Fire‘.

Copies can be purchased from Lulu in either paperback or ebook format.
