A nightmare made real.
On Christmas Eve, six year-old Tom McRae witnessed an unspeakable atrocity that left him orphaned, his childhood in tatters. Now in his mid-thirties, Tom still has terrifying nightmares of that night. When Tom is sent to the remote Scottish village of Douglass to negotiate a land grab for his employer, it seems like a golden opportunity for him to start over. But Tom can’t help feeling he’s been to Douglass before, and the terrible dreams from his childhood have begun to spill over into his waking life. As murderous events unfold and Tom’s feverish nightmares escalate, he will discover the hideous truth behind the villagers’ strange pagan ritual of The Jack in the Green.

Praise for ‘The Jack in the Green’

“I have enjoyed all of Frazer Lee’s work, but The Jack in the Green is by far my favorite! Lee strikes the perfect balance between psychological horror…and vicious violence and gore.” (Rating: 5 out of 5 stars, The Horror Bookshelf)

“An intriguing tale filled with genuine horror and a plot that explores some very dark territory” (Horror Novel Reviews)

Quintessential British horror with vivid interludes of bodily trauma and mental anguish” (Keri O’Shea, Brutal As Hell)

A romp of a book that combines pagan mythology with visceral contemporary action” (MikaReadsHorrorFiction)

“A captivating read that weaves a spell, leading you into the Scottish countryside to a village that isn’t all that it seems. The shocking ending makes this one of the most satisfying reads of the year. Frazer Lee scores again, big time.”
(Rating: 5/5, Hunter Shea, author of Forest of Shadows and Evil Eternal)

About the book

Mike Carter and his girlfriend Helen, along with their friends Alex and Kay, travel to a remote loch side cottage for a post-graduation holiday. But their celebrations are short-lived when they hit and kill a stag on the road. Alex s sister Meggie awaits them in the cottage, adding to the tension when her dog, Oscar, goes missing. Mike becomes haunted by a disturbing presence in the cottage, and is hunted by threatening figures in the highland fog. Reeling from a shock revelation, Mike begins to lose his grip on his sanity. As the dark secrets of the past conspire to destroy the bonds of friendship, Mike must uncover the terrifying truth dwelling within the walls of Hearthstone Cottage.

#TheSkintaker returns!

“A charnel carpet of bones—a femur here, a shattered ribcage there—and worst of all, hundreds upon hundreds of skulls” 💀

He’s back! The Skintaker returns in a handsome new edition from Crossroad Press/Macabre Ink.

The Skintaker is a prequel novel to my Bram Stoker Award ‘Best First Novel’ Finalist The Lamplighters, and can be read before or after that book. If you dare.

My thanks to the two Davids at Crossroad Press for giving this old demonic deity a new lease of life.

And this monster comes sheathed in a shiny new skin, too. Check out the new cover art:

About The Skintaker

You have what he wants!
Reclusive nineteen-year-old Rosie Shields hopes for a new lease of life that will free her from the stigma of her debilitating skin condition.
Making a pilgrimage to the Amazon rainforest, Rosie experiences a new world beyond her wildest dreams among the mysterious Myahueneca tribe.
But Rosie’s dreams soon turn to nightmares when she embarks on a ritual vision quest that takes her to the very heart of darkness.
Trapped between murderous hunters and raging forest fires, Rosie will be thrust into a fight for survival, a struggle that awakens an ancient evil stirring in the shadows…the demonic deity known as The Skintaker.

Praise for The Skintaker

“A phenomenon in horror fiction that is truly chilling.”
(5 out of 5 stars, Wesley Thomas, Horror Novel Reviews)

“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)

My fifth novel #HearthstoneCottage is out now!

Release day for my new folk horror novel Hearthstone Cottage passed by in a blur!

The dawn sky provided a suitably spooky herald of the day ahead.

Social media lit up in a Halloween-orange glow of publicity with f(r)iends, family, and other readers sharing their congratulations & photos of their copies of the book. My thanks to you all!

Hearthstone Cottage even crept up on the horror fantasy radar…

And I was interviewed by my publisher Flame Tree Press about the inspiration behind the novel, and what I’m working on next.

When I finally returned home to dusky Lee Cottage, I found a big box of books waiting for me.

My author copies had arrived! I particularly enjoyed getting my talons on the hardcover edition (my first hardcover title, to date, and hopefully not the last).

Cheers to all of you for making it such a fun launch day!

I will be posting details of an upcoming blog tour very soon.

Until then, i hope you will pick up a copy of Hearthstone Cottage. And when you do, I hope it gives you nightmares.

Beast witches, Frazer x
