In Darkness

Horror has been with me from a very early age. I found several copies of The House of Hammer comics in my parent’s bedroom when I was around seven years old. I would sit in the bathroom reading titles such as Shandor: Demon Stalker and Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter, their paper scented with cigarette smokeContinue reading “In Darkness”

The Fruit Cellar Technique

There are two kinds of scary; Jump scary, and Fruit Cellar scary. Allow me to explain. The Jump is pretty self explanatory and limited to movies. Think about the hapless blonde wearing very little while walking backwards away from a weird noise, usually one emanating in a woods. The camera is composed in such aContinue reading “The Fruit Cellar Technique”

Lovecraft Virgin

10 things I’ve learnt about HP Lovecraft having never read his work before: 1. His stories are mostly told using the apostle perspective, by that I mean the main character is never the narrator, and as such gains a mysterious quality that adds to the whole myth/supernatural-ness. 2. Save for the Cthulhu, narrators can rarelyContinue reading “Lovecraft Virgin”

While the cast is many, which at times becomes disorientating as most of theContinue reading “Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murder – Book Review”

Radium Girls by Amanda Gowin – Book Review

Radium Girls is the debut collection of shorts from Amanda Gowin. That needed saying first off, because as soon as you begin this book, you slowly forget it’s a collection of stories. It becomes more a journey through amazingly crafted lives that are connected by a profound need to be coupled. And I don’t meanContinue reading “Radium Girls by Amanda Gowin – Book Review”

Getting in Bed with the Devil

Recently, I did something I thought I would never do as a writer. I self published a book. Today, that doesn’t seem like a huge deal, right? Vanity publishing has been around for a long time. Edgar Allan Poe paid a printer to publish fifty copies of Tamerlane and Other Poems. L. Frank Baum publishedContinue reading “Getting in Bed with the Devil”
