More praise for The Skintaker:

“A grandly entertaining period horror adventure in the classical Kipling and Conrad tradition…THE SKINTAKER has never a dull moment.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
(Eric Red, screenwriter of NEAR DARK, THE HITCHER and author of IT WAITS BELOW and WHITE KNUCKLE)

“Fans of extreme horror will find it all very satisfying, as author Frazer Lee paints his narrative so vividly.”
(5 out of 5 stars, Mallory Heart Reviews)

“I loved this book! Filled with fabulous descriptions and fully formed characters I devoured The Skintaker in one sitting…I didn’t want the adventure to end. This was my first novel by Frazer Lee but it definitely won’t be my last. If you’re looking for a great read, grab this 5 star book and hold on for the ride.”
(5 out of 5 stars, Horror Maiden’s Book Reviews)

“An engaging and innovative slab of pagan horror.”
(Keri O’Shea, Brutal As Hell)

In Memoriam: Sir Christopher Lee

IMG_2320

When I was ten years old I used to pretend Christopher Lee was my dad (still do sometimes – between you and me). Staying up to watch him play Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster and The Mummy in Hammer double bills on telly made quite an impression on me. (and look how well I turned out….)

I’ll never forget meeting Mr Lee years later at a signing – he made a point of standing up because i was with a young lady. What a gentleman (this lovely piece at Brutal As Hell says it all really) and what a phenomenally talented performer. Whether he was playing a Bond villain, the scourge of the Musketeers, a Sith Lord, Dark Wizard, or his inimitable Lord Summerisle – Sir Christopher always gave it his all. He gave so much in his 93 years and the world shall never see his like again.

I close my eyes and hear his voice and to me he is forever The Count.

Rest in Peace, Sir Christopher of Lee x


The Leper Window: Cover art & release date revealed

The Leper Window is the latest in my ‘Daniel Gates’ novella series, which began with the critically acclaimed The Lucifer Glass (click here to read some rave reviews) from Samhain Horror.

I’m super thrilled today to share the cover art with you (below – again by artist Scott Carpenter) and to announce the release date of October 6th 2015 – just in time for Halloween!

Keep an eye on this blog and my social media for pre-order links, extracts and contests in the run up to release.

Of course October is a little way off, but Samhain is never far away so in the meantime why not catch up with my other titles at the Samhain Store.

I hope you’re enjoying this character and series. Daniel Gates will return in novella number three in the series in 2016.

I survived the Hell-e-vator at World Horror Con Atlanta! #WHC2015

Bram Stoker Awards® Weekend & World Horror Con 2015 was a total blast.

I met so many wonderful people, participated in and attended brilliant panels, signed a coffin load of books, and presented the World Premiere of my new movie The Stay. My first Stoker Awards Banquet was an unforgettable night, and I had the pleasure of sitting at the Samhain Horror table with several of my labelmates. I even sipped single malt whisky and chatted with the legendary Jack Ketchum with my partner in crime Aaron Dries. The after-parties went on into the wee hours of the morning and my suitcase was bursting with beautiful books as I flew the red eye back home to merry olde England.

See my WHC2015 photo gallery here.

But one thing I didn’t know about WHC2015 was that it had its own scary theme park ride, courtesy of the Marquis Marriott Atlanta.

The Hell-e-vator.

Check out my clip below – a madcap descent into the vertiginous abyss straight down from the 30th floor into a watery, pebble-based demise. Now imagine doing that with a hangover. We’re on an express elevator to hell – goin’ down! Hold on to yer lungpipes!
