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.

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 ›
Greetings, one and all. I hope this post finds you well and all excited for the festivities next week. You should have finished most of your Christmas shopping by now and if not, best of luck with the lash-ditch rush… Read More ›
It’s festive double review time, kiddies! These short stories by Astrid Addams are just what you need at this time of year. With all proceeds going to Bacchus Residents Rescue, a charity re-housing exotic small mammals, not only will you… Read More ›
I have the very great pleasure of announcing the release of an anthology that is going to soundly (that is a pun) kick some arse around these hear (that’s another) parts. A Silent Dystopia is a collection of short stories by some truly awesome… Read More ›
This latest offering from Claire L Smith certainly holds plenty of chills, much like her previous book, Helena. Ghosts, a creepy house, violence, time and body shifting; there’s lots of scares packed into this little novella. The story is told… Read More ›
All I knew about this book before diving in was that it involved Baba Yaga. An old witch in the woods whose creepy cottage you don’t want to happen upon on your jolly ramble through the trees. But Kev Harrison’s… Read More ›
