Normally at this time of year, I reflect on all the books I’ve read and subject you all to my favourites and those worthy of note. It’s a very narcissistic display that many adopt as the year draws to an end. But this year is different because for most of 2022 I didn’t read anyContinue reading “My Top Ten Horror Movies of 2022”

Session 10 is now live!
As far back as I remember, I always wanted to be a gangster. Sorry, not gangster. Movie director. My love of film crept in at a very early age when my parents took me to the local cinema to watch Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger in 1977. To see the fight between theContinue reading “Session 10 is now live!”
What’s Your Pleasure?
When is porn a turn off? There are probably multiple ways to answer this, depending on your proclivity and morals. I’m not here to judge. What I am here to talk about is a movie that, like Lovelace, Boogie Nights, and Wonderland, made me ask that question, and re-evaluate porn in the 21st Century. ThatContinue reading “What’s Your Pleasure?”

Many thanks go to Night Worms and Sadie Hartmann for doing the official cover reveal yesterday on their blog. But what happens to Tom Nolan in this new book? Here’s theContinue reading “The Ghost of Stormer Hill Cover Reveal”
It’s mid-April already? Well, this update is long overdue. Firstly, there’s been a slight delay in the release of the third, and last, Tom Nolan book. However, it is now with the editor, and I’ll be awaiting the verdict of the red pen in the coming months. There’s no scheduled release date yet, but it’sContinue reading “Happy Easter”
The Long and Winding Road
As we entered the millennium, Scottish writer Laura Hird had dedicated half of her website to pageant new stories by established and fledging writers. The website has now gone, and with it my very first published short story titled Autumn Leaves about a little boy seeing his grandparent go through dementia. I can’t recall whenContinue reading “The Long and Winding Road”
My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To.
Damn. I didn’t know what to expect when I went into this movie. Shot in a restrictive aspect ratio, you instantly feel the claustrophobia experienced by the family the movie orbits. There’s no spoilers here. Thomas is a vampire being cared for by his sister and brother, Jessie and Dwight. The story is a slowContinue reading “My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To.”
I should explain that I don’t have a bookcase at home. I have a shelf where I put my most recent reads, but I incarcerated all my rare first editions and collectibles in yellow straight jackets in the attic. Visitation rights are limited, but I sometimes go up there and allow them some air fromContinue reading “Attic Archives”
Scream if You Want to Go Faster
With every ear to the ground (hopefully that phrase is still politically correct), keeping something secret these days on the Internet is akin to understanding what’s politically correct and what isn’t. But with recent movies like James Bond’s No Time to Die, and Spider-Man: No Way Home, it proves that embargoes, and just plain old-fashionedContinue reading “Scream if You Want to Go Faster”
