I’ve reviewed quite a few of Lebbon’s books, and aside from one book, (I will not name it for fear of giving it more power) I have loved them all.

Tim Lebbon has quickly become one of my favorite horror authors. This is a very early novel that starts out with an enraged man who's literally kicking and screaming for animal rights. But there's a point early on where I actually sat up when I read what was seen through a certain window.

I love writing, reading, triathlon, real ale, chocolate, good movies, occasional bad movies, and cake.

I was born in London in 1969, lived in Devon until I was eight, and the next twenty years were spent in Newport. My wife Tracey and I then did a Good Thing and moved back to the country, and we now live in the little village of Goytre in Monmouthshire with our kids Ellie and Daniel. And our dog,
