My collection 'The Dulwich Horror and Others' should be out as a hardback in August, I'm chasing the publishers over the paperback and e-book editions -- those are non-Stubbs but some of them have the same setting you may recognise a character or two. I'm working on another collection at present, afterwards -- if other people like him too -- I will aim for another Stubbs by early 2016.(less)

Timy
Timy is 23% done with Alien Stars: Daaamn, I loved this analogy between the Universe and a broom closet. Nice one Mr. Hambling!
The Dulwich Horror and Others by David Hambling
"Alarmingly, a pun made by at least two other writers. I can't speak for their work, but this collection makes a good fist of weaving Lovecraft's horrors around the streets, railways and strange old woods of south-east London. Sure, there are times..." Read more of this review »

It was a short book.

With lots of blank spaces.

But it was not a good book.

It may have felt it was a good book. It probably did feel it was a good book. But it was the sort of book that felt that it was a good book without any reason.

An atmospheric and tremendously well-plotted horror thriller. An author, suffering from writer's block moves into an old house by a remote lake to complete his next novel, and strikes up a relationship with the widow who is his only neighbour. Then h

A fun book, what you would call an actual romp. Very farcical, very 1970's New York, and very politically incorrect as far as race and sex go -- you can only read it as a product of its time, as they don't write them like this any more. Lots of chara ...more

“There is a story about a traveller chased by a tiger to the edge of an abyss. The man took hold of a vine and started to climb down when he saw an angry dragon at the bottom of the abyss, and when he looked up, the tiger was lashing its tail above. As he hung on, a mouse started to gnaw away at the vine he was clinging to. The man was ready for death when he noticed a wild strawberry growing next to him, so he plucked it. It was the sweetest he had ever tasted.”
David Hambling, Broken Meats: A Harry Stubbs Adventure

“I do at least understand a little more how fact and fiction work together. It’s like a steak and kidney pudding: without steak, there’s no substance; without kidney, there’s no savour. You need the proper mixture. Pure fact is too indigestible without the imaginative part that fills in the spaces between. That’s the only way to make a satisfying pudding.”
David Hambling, Broken Meats: A Harry Stubbs Adventure
