Recently my life tried to become an M R James story, but I was saved by a morass of nettles and blackberry vines.

Part One (the true bit): I was in the Torquay Museum a while back with my little one, and as I checked out the prehistoric Torbay section, I came across a cabinet displaying human bones from a 5000 year old passage grave.

Reminiscent of Poppy Z Brite, Koja and Kiernan. A multi-sensory, lyrical writer of the grotesque and erotic and the terrible across many periods of history. Impressed.

“Hell was a living place inside every membrane of flesh that temporarily passed itself off as human.”

Adam Nevill, Last Days

“He wanted to roar like a lion on a cement floor. And bellow like a polar bear with yellow fur worn down to pink skin against the tiles of an enclosure in a zoo. The disgust must come. Let it drip down the walls. Scorch the ceiling black with hatred. Liberate rage.”
Adam Nevill, Apartment 16
