Very pleased to announce that I’ll be appearing (virtually) at my friend Joseph Freeman‘s MIDSUMMER MACABRE event alongside Peter Atkins, Tim Lebbon, Alison Moore, and Joseph himself. It takes place online from 1pm UK time on Saturday 25 June.
I chose one of my foulest, seediest short stories to read (it’s one from THE LAST BIG THING collection, if you’re interested), and recorded it in an empty attic a couple of months back. It’s a suitably grubby, audio-visual treat! ivermectin anemia
I go to a lot of events, and I decide not to go to many more. ????? ????? I’m a fussy sod – much as I genuinely love talking to other authors and publishers etc. ?????? ??? ???? ???? , I have to say I prefer meeting readers. Many conventions seem to be one thing or the other, but Horror in the East was a straight down the middle collision of both. Relaxed, informal and well supported by both the local and the horror community, it was an absolute pleasure to be there. Congratulations to Emma Bunn and Jo Wilde for putting together such a superb event. I’ll be back for more Horror in the East on 1st – 2nd November 2013, and I hope to see many of you there.

Remember THE BLEED series that I wrote with Mark Tufo and Chris Philbrook? It was a wild, wild, wild, wild set of books that ended up going to places I don't think any of the three of us expected. A huge amount of fun to write (and read).If you missed it and you're in the US, you're in luck. Until tomorrow, Audible have book one - RUPTURE - on offer as part of their End of Summer Sale.www.audible.com/ep/end-of-summer-sale... See MoreSee Less
