Some kind words about the stories:

Children of the Crimson Sun

‘One of the best stories of possession I’ve read since the Exorcist.‘

Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual and The Reddening

‘A compelling tale of amoral purpose.’

Mark Andresen- The Pan Review

Horrill Hill

‘This story-story has a gory rictus at its hyphen. And clairvoyant viscera. Its method of stylistic power only imaginable if you read it.’

D.F. Lewis- The Gestalt Real-Time Review.

‘Will stay with the reader permanently.’

Alcebiades Diniz Miguel.

The Sorrows of Satan’s Book

‘A haunting portrayal….An excellent example of cold, sea-drenched gloom.’

Dejan Ognjanovic – Rue Morgue

‘Hallucinatory ….powerful. An oblique but ultimately impressive story.’

Mark Monday

A diptych of dark, richly wrought, strange tales, exploring faith, identity, and those mysterious currents which inhabit the spaces in between them. At once psychological tales of mounting spiritual horror, and investigations into the dark fantastic.

The title novella, Children of the Crimson Sun, concerns a young medic of the Hospitaller Knights of Malta, charged with investigating an unsettling case in a local fishing village, where spiritual forces both contemporary and ancient saturate the sprawling archipelago’s villages, churches, monasteries, megalithic temples, and deep subterranean caverns.

In the second piece, A Haunting in Miniature, a village in the Moravian region of the Czech Republic is unsettled by a series of ghostly visitations. The supernatural intrusions give rise to suspicions that the region’s history has resurfaced in strange and foreboding circumstances.

The book is a lithographically printed, 192 page pocket sized sewn hardback (105mm x 165mm); limited to just 220 copies. ISBN 978-1-916465725.
