Murky Visions

Ahead of the imminent release of Stitched Smile Publication‘s ‘Tenebrous’ anthology next month (which I’m in), just wanted to share the full wraparound cover with you all, which I think we can all agree is pretty damn awesome.

Blood from the Mummy’s Tome?

I’m pleased to announce that, after a brief revision, Terror Tree’s ‘Mummy Knows Best‘ anthology is no longer under wraps, having arisen once more on both and to terrorize the living.

Featuring brand new work from fifteen authors on a central theme, the book houses stories of mummies from around the globe, including Egypt, Latvia, Britain, Japan and Peru (as well as a couple of tales from outside of the box as well).

If you like new twists on a classic monster, then why not dig up a copy (just beware of the curse!).


Tomorrow slightly delayed

Indie Authors Press have recently posted an update about their upcoming SF anthology, ‘Issues of Tomorrow‘, which will include my story ‘Broken Machines‘.

The book is now due for a slightly later release date in December, which makes it a great idea for an early stocking filler.

More news to follow as it develops.

A less expensive hat?

The paperback version of my first collection, ‘Parlour Tricks’, is now available and can be purchased through all the usual outlets, for those of you who prefer your fiction a little cheaper than the hardback version:- / / Parallel Universe Publications

If you’re wanting to get your copy delivered in short order, I’d recommend ordering direct from David @ Parallel Universe as, being the publisher, he’s carrying a greater stock and you’re less likely to have to wait for a printing.


Of Gods and Monsters

The Autumn edition of The Colored Lens is now available to download from Amazon, and features my SF story, “神の狩人 (Kami No Kariudo)“.

Those of you familiar with my work will know that sci-fi is an arena I don’t stray into too often, so it’s always gratifiying to see one of these pieces get published.

You can order the latest edition via the following downloads for a very reasonably priced £3.67 / $4.99:-

The Hat Has Landed


Ladies and gentlemen, drum-roll please, as the hardcover version of Parlour Tricks is now available to order from /, priced at a very reasonable £20/$26. Stocks will be available shortly as we’re all just awaiting the first deliveries from the printers.

The book will also be on sale directly from Parallel Universe‘s purchase page, as well as listed with Barnes & Noble and Wordery soon. I’ll add links for all of these as soon as they become available.

Many thanks to both David Riley and Luke Spooner for all their hard word in making this happen, and to David especially for agreeing to publish the collection in the first place.


Devil worshippers stalk the ageing boards of Blackpool Pier, a scrap-yard automaton devours the souls of lost children, and a murderous priest hunts an ancient she-demon through the streets of New York.

A selection of horror stories to chill the blood, featuring revenant felines, garbage-eating clairvoyants, flesh-eating magpies and a severed head with murder in mind.
