Well where do I start?
That intro makes it sound like I’m up to sooo much fun stuff and have so many interesting facts to share about myself, but it’s all pretty boring really.
I write stories where scary stuff happens, I blog about nonsense, I am an amateur serial killer in the making, and I love snuggling up with my cute little kittens in front of a warm fire (only one of those statements is false).
I enjoy reading, which is a good thing if you want to write, as you need to know how to do it properly! King, Kafka, Palahniuk, Barker, Lovecraft, Jackie Collins; all the greats.
Films, yes I like them. Food, I enjoy eating it. Drums, I love banging them.
I hope to take over the world one day and make everyone listen to ear-shattering grindcore at all times, to only complain that my music is becoming too mainstream.
And that’s it really. Oh yeah, I also have a GSOH, although you’d probably doubt that if you ever met me.

Steve Stred’s latest novel not only shares its name with a great band (the older stuff, anyway), it also very much lives up to the hype. I blazed through this book in no time, and found the climatic final scenes… Read More ›
Once upon a time, in the not so distant past, Halo Scot wowed me with the most excellent Rift Cycle series. If you haven’t checked these books out then you should stop immediately and involve yourself. Blood, gore, tension, humour,… Read More ›
I knew little about this book before diving in. OK, I knew it was horror, and I knew I thought the cover was pretty brutal. I bought this on the back of the author tweeting about it being on sale,… Read More ›
I’m an occasional Sci-Fi’er. Usually there’s got to be some kind of horror element to it, but not always. We shouldn’t just stick to one genre now, should we? I may not have picked this up if I wasn’t a… Read More ›
The last collection of stories I read by Joe Zito was the brutally awesome A Vulgar Display of Short Fiction. Within those pages were some of the most sordid, grotesque, and disturbing tales where trigger warnings were very much at… Read More ›
Astrid Addams has concocted a great collection of tales here that certainly reside on the darker side. As with most short story collections some are better than others, but I generally had a pretty good time with these. Things kick… Read More ›
This extremely brief tale is dripping, or soaking, in lashings of descriptive prose and metaphor where more or less any sentence could be used as promotional material for the story. Before writing this review I read the story twice, just to… Read More ›
I don’t believe there is a single person in this world who enjoys traffic jams. I’d even go as far to say the majority of people despise them. So imagine a story set during an aforementioned jam. How can that… Read More ›
I’ve been a big fan of A A Medina’s work for a while now, so when I saw this little offering of horrific treats, well, I won’t finish this cliched sentence. On first opening the book I was slightly, not… Read More ›
