‘Demons, chills and superb writing’ The Leper Window: early reviews & pre-orders

The Leper Window, my new occult novella, is released Oct 6th by Samhain Horror.

Just in time for Halloween.

The Leper Window is the 2nd in the Daniel Gates Adventures series (which began with The Lucifer Glass) and will transport you to the haunted wilds of North Wales – and beyond into a realm of demons and ancient curses.

If you like that sort of thing then you can pre-order the book today for less than the price of a cup of coffee.


About the book:

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.


Early praise for The Leper Window:

“Demons, chills, and superb writing.”
(Cat After Dark Book Reviews)

‘The Leper Window is an interesting and creepy work…it packs an eerie punch’
(The Novel Pursuit)


And here’s what The Horror Bookshelf had to say about the Daniel Gates Adventures:

“Lee is a supreme talent when it comes to building a sense of atmosphere and that is evident not only in The Lucifer Glass, but his other works as well.…Lee has at least another two books planned in the Daniel Gates universe, but I hope the stories continue well beyond that!”
(The Horror Bookshelf)

More praise for The Skintaker:

“A grandly entertaining period horror adventure in the classical Kipling and Conrad tradition…THE SKINTAKER has never a dull moment.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
(Eric Red, screenwriter of NEAR DARK, THE HITCHER and author of IT WAITS BELOW and WHITE KNUCKLE)

“Fans of extreme horror will find it all very satisfying, as author Frazer Lee paints his narrative so vividly.”
(5 out of 5 stars, Mallory Heart Reviews)

“I loved this book! Filled with fabulous descriptions and fully formed characters I devoured The Skintaker in one sitting…I didn’t want the adventure to end. This was my first novel by Frazer Lee but it definitely won’t be my last. If you’re looking for a great read, grab this 5 star book and hold on for the ride.”
(5 out of 5 stars, Horror Maiden’s Book Reviews)

“An engaging and innovative slab of pagan horror.”
(Keri O’Shea, Brutal As Hell)

Happy Friday the 13th!

Triskaidekaphobics look away…but Friday the 13th is a special date for many horror fans, especially those who like to wear hockey masks to summer camp!

On this auspicious day I’m celebrating the impending release of my new horror novel The Skintaker (out April 7th) with a discount sale on my debut novel The Lamplighters. Yes, you can read The Lamplighters for only $0.99 – grab your copy at Samhain & NobleiTunes, and Kobo (offer ends March 15th).

A Bram Stoker Award® Finalist (for “Superior Achievement in a First Novel”), The Lamplighters introduces the dark and demonic ‘Skin Mechanic’, a character who was described by critics as “one of the darkest characters I have ever had the pleasure of reading about” (S. Siferd, Night Owl Reviews) and “destined to become one of the great monsters of modern horror” (Dave Brzeski, British Fantasy Society).

New release The Skintaker is a prequel to The Lamplighters and explores the mysterious (and terrifying) origins of the character.

So, if (like me) you’re a fan of the big guy clad in a greatcoat of human skin, do let me know by posting a review on Amazon or Goodreads – and who knows, the character may return in a third book…

Meantime, Happy Friday the 13th!

(Triskaidekaphobics, it’s safe to look again………………….tomorrow)
