I just signed the publishing contract for my new novella…

SamhainSoonThe ink is just drying on the contract for my new novella The Leper Window. I’m thrilled to announce that Samhain Publishing will release the book in 2015.

The Leper Window is the sequel to The Lucifer Glass and is the second in my Daniel Gates occult novella series. This time, poor Daniel faces weird evil in the wilds of Wales.

My editor Don D’Auria said he had fun reading the book, and I hope you will too!

On that note I’d better sign off as the final copy edits have also come in for my new novel The Skintakers, (prequel to The Lamplighters) also due for release via Samhain Horror in 2015.

If you haven’t read them yet, why not check out The Lamplighters and The Lucifer Glass ahead of publication of the sequels?

One last thing before I go, did I mention I’ll be appearing at World Horror Con 2015 in Atlanta USA? It’s set to be a great event, and is my first USA gig since Horrorfind Weekend 2006. I’m looking forward to meeting fellow horror authors and readers alike – and I might even have some copies of my books to sign at the Friday Mass Signing Event. See you there!


Dead Pics

Dead By Dawn 2013 was an absolute blast. It was funtimes all the way watching a dazzling array of horror movies and hanging with horror family in the Filmhouse bar.

Friday night’s double bill of Basket Case and Brain Damage, introduced by the mighty Frank Henenlotter and aided and abetted by the demented antics of Albert Cadabra, was an absolute highlight. Frank also directed the audience in a series of Dead Pics – you can witness the results at the official Dead By Dawn Fassbock Page.

For ace in-depth coverage of the festival, look no further than Brutal As Hell where the reviews are second to none.

Meantime, here’s a handful of pics I took during the frivolities, before I was carried away by the deadite hordes to my tequila-flavoured doom.

Dead By Dawn, I salute you. Klaatu…barada…nikto!

Samhain Horror at Dead By Dawn 2013


Check out my guest author blog post at the Samhain Horror website where I chit chat about the incredible Dead By Dawn Horror Festival in Edinburgh (now in its 20th year). Samhain Horror authors will be out in force with myself, Peter Mark May and Maynard/Sims in attendance. I’m doing a live reading on Saturday ahead of the first feature presentation, look forward to seeing some of you guys there!


All Horror, all Hallow~eek!

It’s that time of year again folks. The time when the air turns frigid and the trees drop their leaves in terror and excitement for the tricks and treats to come. A time for Monster Munch. And Monster Movies.

I’ve been gearing up for the ghoulish with a free short story and Q&A over at the supercool Hell House Hotel Halloween Advent Calendar, and a Halloween Haunts guest post at the Horror Writers’ Association Blog ~ check ’em out!

And if you find yourself in foggy old London this Hallow-eek-end, do drop by and say hi…



And whatever your plans dear f(r)iends, i wish you a very HAPPY HALLOWE’EN…and a SCARY SAMHAIN of course…muah ha ha!
