Here’s what one reviewer said about the book:
“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)
Spread the word like wildfire my f[r]iends – thank you!

About the book
A nightmare made real.
On Christmas Eve, six year-old Tom McCrae 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.

Ah, the United Kingdom. Birthplace to all manner of horrors and their creators (and I’m not just talking about the current Government).
With its rich history of ghost stories and gothic nightmares, wouldn’t it be great if the UK had its own chapter of the Horror Writers Association I hear you ask? Well, behind the scenes, we writers have been discussing that very possibility. And, thanks to co-chairs Marie O’Regan and Paul Kane, HWA UK has now launched.
This is exciting news for the genre, its fans, and practitioners. Together, we can celebrate all things horror and help to promote the work of UK horror scribes, at home and beyond our shores.
Check out the official website http://hwauk.org where you can find a list of current members, details on joining the organisation, along with information about Stokercon and the Bram Stoker Awards®.
