Only The Broken Remain on (Virtual) Tour


My collection of weird fictions, Only The Broken Remain , was finally released into the world last week, and to celebrate we went on a mini-tour. Clearly actual tours are a bad idea (not to mention illegal) in the age of Covid, so we did our best online. Hopefully you'll agree that we kicked up a storm - or at least filled a few spare minutes while you waited for the world to go back to nor Read more of this blog post »

The Wise Friend by Ramsey Campbell

I've been revisiting some of Ramsey Campbell's earlier work recently, so it was a pleasant surprise to find this new novel just as engrossing and unsettling as they were - if not more so. Campbell has his own distinctive narrative voice, which might ...more

The Casebook of Carnacki the Ghost Finder by William Hope Hodgson

The slightly old-fashioned framing devices may put some modern readers off, but Hodgson's eye for weird imagery has stood the test of time. Collection closer 'The Hog' in particular offers a strange, skewed horror that sill feels unique. ...more

"Short stories are tough—for writers as well as readers. With only a little time to make an impact, many end up falling flat and forgettable. Thankfully for us readers, Dan Coxon knocks it out of the park with the short stories in Only The Broken Rema" Read more of this review »

A solid Doctor Who novel, if a little predictable in places. The imagery is fun, though, and it stays just the right side of scary for a kids' book. Our 9-year-old rated it 'Exciting'. ...more

“The membrane between worlds was thinner out here than the inland-dwelling peoples could ever realise, so they expected no help.”
Dan Coxon, This Dreaming Isle

“Enough of happy. I’m sick of happy. The prison of it, a weight on my lungs. The thing I should be aiming to feel, and make others feel. It’s a relief when the pleasant young man asks me instead, ‘Can you remember a time in the village when you were sad?”
Dan Coxon, This Dreaming Isle
