Thanks to Mallory Heart for this stonking 5-star review of my horror novel The Lamplighters:
“prepare for a thrill-ride of epically gory and horrendous proportions. Fasten your seat belt and hold on tight, as Frazer Lee takes you — away”

The Skintaker - a prequel to Bram Stoker Award® Finalist The Lamplighters is out in ebook and paperback, April 7th 2015
The 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!
put some horror in yer headphones!
Big news today – my publisher Samhain Horror signed a deal with Audio Realms who will produce audiobooks of The Lamplighters, The Lucifer Glass, The Jack in the Green, and the forthcoming The Skintakers for release in 2015.
Audio Realms has released horror audios by the likes of Brian Keene, Ramsey Campbell, H.P. Lovecraft, Bram Stoker and many more – so to say I’m thrilled about the deal is a bit of an understatement!
More details as I get them.
(Sadly, Vincent Price is not available for narration duties. I don’t get to choose who performs the reading, but if I could my shortlist would be Doug Bradley, Robert Englund or…Christopher Lee!)
The Jack in the Green – get yours today!
Delighted to see the first reviews of my new Samhain Horror novel The Jack in the Green hit the web.
Here are a few choice cuts:
“An intriguing tale filled with genuine horror and a plot that explores some very dark territory” (Rating: 4/5, 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” (Rating: 4/5, 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)
My thanks to all for taking the time to read, rate and review!
‘The Jack in the Green‘ release day is upon us dear f(r)iends.
To celebrate the release of my new Samhain Horror novel I’ll be posting an extract over at the Samhain Cafe, giving away a paperback copy on Goodreads, and signing books at the British Fantasy Society open night book launch party in London.
I hope you’ll pick up the novel, and if you do I’d love to hear what you think of it on Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, Amazon etc.
Meanwhile, here’s a tune to wish you all a green day before Jack puts out the light…
“An intriguing tale filled with genuine horror and a plot that explores some very dark territory…” Horror Novel Reviews
I think visually, so when it comes to writing a new novel a mood board is an essential I can’t do without. Lucky for me there’s so much foliage around these parts, as when the time came to draft my new Samhain Horror novel ‘The Jack in the Green‘ (out in paperback and ebook, October 1st) I found inspiration during every stroll.
Some of the images made it straight into the text (readers of ‘The Jack in the Green’ will know the importance that trees joined at their roots have in the overall story), while others simply served to get me in the mood before writing. Like music (or in my case in addition to music) an evocative image can help fast-track you into your writing process. And, as was the case with many of the images included in the gallery below, I occasionally got lost inside of them.
I hope if you pick up my new book that you’ll enjoy getting lost in those forests too.
Just watch out for ‘The Jack in the Green’. “He’s in the trees…he’s waiting.”
The 1st review of my new novel for Samhain Horror ‘The Jack in the Green’ is in – and it’s a goody!
Here’s a snippet:
I found myself completely wrapped up in this one, eager to reach conclusion and receive a few answers to my mounting questions. With a fine razor edge twist, Lee carries this story into a fully fleshed out novel.
Satisfaction is found within this read. So when all is said and done I am highly recommending this one. Be ready for what you really aren’t ready for. Whatever you do, do not read the ending first. Open this and enjoy.
Rating: 4 out of 5.
