Here’s what one reviewer said about the book:

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.
What horror author Frazer Lee has done with his newest novel The Skintaker is to take that fear and play with its setting and its time-frame; going back to the early twentieth century, and into the Amazon rainforest with his new book’s host of characters…
Brutal As Hell reviewer Keri O’Shea discusses my latest novel The Skintaker, over here.

Thanks to Keri & Brutal As Hell for the support!

Read a 5-star rated review of The Skintaker at Horror Novel Reviews – can’t wait to hear what you think of the book.
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!)
