Good Fortune

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 .

The Woods makes Ginger Nuts of Horror's Books of the Year part 1

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.
