Why write horror? What am I afraid of? The secret life of puppets and the near forgotten history of puppet theatre. Unstable characters ...

A problem with doing multiple interviews around a book release is repeating yourself, so I have tried to say something new about THE HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS for My Bookish Ways. My thanks in advance to the curious.

The Memoirs of a Survivor by Doris Lessing

Only the second Lessing novel I have read, and I found this to be a strange and absorbing trip. The apocalyptic element seemed to be a product of its time - the fear of youth and teenagers (though the casual barbarity was chilling at times) - but the...more

Rate this book
Clear rating
Much to enjoy and admire in THE SLEEP ROOM, that is, quite literally, a novel of psychological horror, as it is set in a psychiatric hospital. Echoes of McGrath's ASYLUM, with a twist of Aickman and M R James. Some masterly set-pieces and a fascinati...more

A new horror novel that I was mightily impressed with is BIRD BOX by Josh Malerman, and it's a debut. Voyager sent me a copy and I read the entire book in one sitting on Christmas Eve.

EDGE is pretty good and well worth checking out. An effective blend of folklore, advanced physics (that even I could grasp and I failed O Level maths twice), pure mathematics, cosmic horror, missing people, and lots of bizarre occurrences and ancient...more

“Hell was a living place inside every membrane of flesh that temporarily passed itself off as human.”
Adam Nevill, Apartment 16

“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

“After millions of years of evolution, we start stupid cults of celebrity and feed the egos of maniacs until they take our money, fuck us in the arse, and then cut our throats. We should be cutting their throats!”
Adam Nevill, Last Days
