Rowan Fortune provides a round up of books which stood out for him in 2019 and I was delighted to see my collection Broken on the Inside appear. As Rowan puts it, " I will also always associate 2019 with a set of indie horror fictions that I read throughout the year; these are books that left deep impressions on me. Such fiction engages with a horror that is deeply concerned with personal and social realities, and it does so with creativity and flair." I would highly recommend the works Rowan has picked out and the full list can be found here .

Absolutely delighted that The Woods has made Ginger Nuts of Horror's Books of the Year Part 1. I've been fortunate enough to makes Jim McLeod's list of best books in previous years but this is the first time as editor of an anthology. The Woods contains superb stories from Cate Gardner, James Everington, Mark West and Penny Jones alongside an offering from me. I loved each and every story sent to me and it was wonderful to work with such talented writers. Plus a huge thanks to Peter Mark May for asking me to helm this for his Hersham Horror Books imprint and his coming up with the theme. Here is a link to Jim's Books of the Year Part 1. There's some fabulous works on there showing just how strong horror is currently as a genre. Very much looking forward to seeing what else Jim has picked out for his next selections. https://gingernutsofhorror.com/fiction-reviews/ginger-nuts-of-horrors-books-of-the-year-jim-mcleods-picks-part-1

This has mainly been due to life with a major family illness and a lot of change in my day job. However, I have been busy writing in the background when the time allows and also a bit of editing. Peter Mark May of Hersham Horror Books was kind enough to ask me to be editor for the latest in his fantastic PentAnth series. The connecting theme is five writers coming together on a single themed anthology (hence the Pent and Anth). Peter asked me to wrangle writers together on the subject of The Woods. Fantastic! I love the woods in general, spending lots of my free time either with family or on my own walking in the woods and exploring nature, so this was a perfect theme for me. I am delighted to say that I was able to find some fine, fine writers to be part of this anthology alongside my good self (the editor always puts in a story in the Pe
