About this author

I'm a writer from Nottingham, England- most of what I write is dark, supernatural fiction, although not necessarily 'horror' in the blood and guts sense. My main influences are writers like Ramsey Campbell, Shirley Jackson, and Robert Aickman.

My latest collection, Falling Over, is out now from Infinity Plus.


Oh, and I drink Guinness if anyone's offering...

The Moon Will Look Strange by Lynda E. Rucker
" I loved this collection of stories. While each is very different, they all share a spooky, paranormal edge. Reading these stories gave me the hazy, surreal feeling of being lost in a dream.

Lynda Rucker's writing manages to engage all the senses.... " Read more of this review »

Neil Schiller
“A sweeping vista of Northern sky opens up between the warehouses and hangs motionless above the cobbled streets. It’s a world of unrequited love beneath the smoke stacks and awkward moments in the underpass. A great crashing wave of romantic despair that washes over my dramatic heart, dousing it with a thin grey rinse. I’m James Dean, I’m Albert Camus, I posture in doorways with a lit cigarette dangling from the corner of my mouth. My great iron bedstead, my kitchen sink drama, the grainy black and white days of this life...”
Neil Schiller, Oblivious

Shirley Jackson
“No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality.”
Shirley Jackson, The Haunting of Hill House

Shirley Jackson
“My name is Mary Katherine Blackwood. I am eighteen years old, and I live with my sister Constance. I have often thought that with any luck at all, I could have been born a werewolf, because the two middle fingers on both my hands are the same length, but I have had to be content with what I had. I dislike washing myself, and dogs, and noise. I like my sister Constance, and Richard Plantagenet, and Amanita phalloides, the death-cup mushroom. Everyone else in our family is dead.”
Shirley Jackson, We Have Always Lived in the Castle

Shirley Jackson
“Am I walking toward something I should be running away from?”
Shirley Jackson, The Haunting of Hill House

“Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you've got to say, and say it hot.”

James Everington Hi - here's a few read recently I've liked:

Welcome To The Underworld - IF Rowan

City Of Hell anthology Ed. Colin Barnes (submissions open for vol 2. as well by the way...)

Worse Than Myself - Adam Golaski

A Book Of Horrors -Ed. Stephen Jones

The Weird - not got this yet but on order; absolutely HUGE anthology of weird fiction. Contents look ace.

Fox Been meaning to ask if you've any brilliant horror recommendations.. (or any recommendations, really. I'm open to Must Read 2012 books at present.)


message 2: by James

James Everington Well I guess 1Q84 is the obvious 'big' book at the moment. Do you like Murakami? And I'm currently reading a complete Sherlock Holmes!


message 1: by Fox

Fox Anything you think I simply -must- be reading? I've fallen behind..
