ABOUT THE DANIEL GATES ADVENTURES:

Together in one volume, the first two novellas in the Daniel Gates Adventures.

THE LUCIFER GLASS

“It may cost you your soul. ”

Daniel Gates is a fixer. Whatever his client wants, he can get for a price. But the price of his latest assignment is a high one indeed. He is to travel to Scotland to exchange a rare demonic text, a grimoire, for a consignment of even rarer whiskey. Reading the grimoire, Gates learns of the legend of Lucifer s Glass and the unholy trinity of green-eyed demons who protect it. As he does battle with the demons, Daniel realizes too late that there is much more to his assignment than meets the eye. He is locked in a struggle to save his very soul from damnation.

THE LEPER WINDOW

“Do not gaze into its secrets.”

Daniel Gates’s last assignment involving a rare demonic book left him plagued by hideous nightmares, which are about to get even worse. When a page is stolen from Choronzon’s Grimoire, Daniel is sent to the wilds of North Wales to retrieve it for his mysterious client. But the stolen page contains dark, occult secrets, and he finds to his peril that he is not the only one desperate to find it. Daniel’s journey takes him to the very brink of madness and to the demons that await—beyond the Leper Window.

note to self – if you come across a demonic grimoire in your local library, maybe just put it back on the shelf…

The Lamplighters: “A trembling nationwide!” フレイザー・リー 断頭島 ギロチンアイランド

Today marks the publication of The Lamplighters in a Japanese translation from Takeshobo Publishing, Tokyo.

The alternate Japanese title is the rather subtle and elegant Decapitation Island, which I admit is kind of growing on me!

Here’s what the cover looks like:

lamplighters_japan_frazer_lee

My Japanese reading skills are non-existent, so I ran Takeshobo’s book description through an online translator.

This is my favourite part:

“A horror horror that is rolling in an isolated island separated from the outside world, a trembling nationwide!”

The Lamplighters (or Decapitation Island!) is available now from Amazon.co.jp and all good horror horror stockists.

Yoi ichinichi o,

The Lamplighters Goes J-Horror

Takeshobo The Lamplighters by Frazer Lee

Major publisher Take Shobo will release a Japanese translation of my Bram Stoker Award® Nominated horror novel The Lamplighters in ebook and paperback.

I’m excited about the translation, and the potential for my work to reach new Japanese readers.

And I’d love to be a fly on the wall when the poor translators get to the part where [spoiler] uses a syringe to extract [spoiler]’s buttock fat, before injecting it into his [spoiler] so that he can [spoiler] [spoiler]’s eye socket… (Sigh)

I will post the release date and cover art when I have them!

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.
