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 is the third book in Halo Scot’s Rift Cycle. I’m very much invested in these tales with the first two books being very much five star affairs in my opinion. You can read how much I loved them here… Read More ›
Welcome to the city of Lorn. This shortish tale thrusts you right into this dystopian setting, never in elaborate over-explaining detail, but enough to make you feel the grime and taste the corruption. And what would be right at home… Read More ›
I knew kind of a little about the premise of this story before diving in. A haunted house tale, right? Well, no. On the surface you’d be forgiven for thinking this – four friends getting away from it all to… Read More ›
Wow, this is a story that certainly lives up to its name. Darkness Calls, it really does. You know what you’re getting with a Short Sharp Shocks! release and this one is as good as any in the ever-increasing collection…. Read More ›
This collection of 11 stories all share themes of suffering by their insignificant protagonists as they are thrust into hellish worlds and depraved realms previously unknown by most human minds. And these tales don’t really turn out too well for… Read More ›
As I write this little review I’m still not sure what I thought of this book. I know that sounds weird, and maybe that’s the point. Do I judge this on my enjoyment levels as I read, or on the… Read More ›
I’ve had this book on my radar for ages, from back in the days when a paperback copy cost something like three million quid or something to buy! But things are different now, so I just finished my nice shiny… Read More ›
Calvin Demmer returns, doing what he does best, with two short stories. He doesn’t have long to impress with these, but he manages it, again. Highway Hunger is the tale of Dudley, a dude out doing his community service which involves clearing… Read More ›
