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.

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 ›
In this SSS! entry we are treated to a trio of tales from the very talented Ross Jeffery. I very much enjoyed his book Juniper which I reviewed right here, but he has many more stories that I really need… Read More ›
I’ve never been someone who partook in audiobooks. It wasn’t through snobbery, I just never thought I’d enjoy the experience. When driving and listening to music, I often zone out and miss things, usually because of dick drivers on the… Read More ›
Steve Stred has managed to write a killer shortish story that involves coming-of-age, a traumatic childhood, a new-found relationship between a kid and his step-dad. And oh yeah, some good old fashioned cosmic horror. I really enjoyed this tale, and… Read More ›
Well here it is, the fourth and final instalment of this excellent Rift Cycle quadrilogy (that’s a good word, isn’t it?). I don’t think I’ve read a series since A Song of Ice and Fire, but I’m so glad I… Read More ›
I’m a sucker for cults; reading or watching about them, of course, not actually joining them. Not yet anyway. Add to my cult-loving another SSS! release that deals with this subject matter, I just had to get involved. Jim is… Read More ›
I’m not going to start this review with the inevitable ‘These SSS! releases keep getting better and better’ blah blah blah. Oh dear. Scrap that idea then! Wow, this was one crazy ride. If you need convincing then let me just give… Read More ›
“The saviour of mankind will be suicide and its prophets are serial killers and film makers – apparently.” Right then, OK, where do I start with this one? I don’t often struggle with writing reviews, it’s usually pretty easy to sum… Read More ›
