Kim Justice Christmas Special

This plug is 8 months late, but better late than never! Myself and my 'Film Wars' co-host Gareth Alexander appear in Kim Justice's Christmas Special. Kim is the queen of video game documentary excellence, so if you enjoy such things - do check out her Youtube channel - it's superb.

Big Finish / Doctor Who Commission

I'm delighted to say that I have been commissioned by Big Finish Productions to write a Doctor Who audio drama. Big Finish are perhaps best known for their Doctor Who ranges and various spin-offs, but also produce audio drama featuring Sherlock Holmes, Blake's 7, 2000 AD, among others. It's a real thrill to be working with them -  I've been a fan of their excellent output for many years.

I can't divulge any of the details of the story at this point - but as you can probably imagine, I'm pretty darn excited. I'll tell you more as soon as I am able.

The Future Boys!

Tuesday, 6 June 2017

Future Boys Release Date

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign at the beginning of 2017, the first 2 episodes of 'The Future Boys' will be released on Saturday 24th June 2017 via iTunes and SoundCloud.

Having spent two years apart and taken up new identities, Tyler and Gary are unwittingly brought back together by Rik Sheringham, a galaxy-renowned treasure hunter, celebrity and old school friend/enemy of Tyler's. Sheringham's deal is simple - Tyler and Gary must undergo a series of daring and dangerous heists on his behalf, or be handed over to the authorities and forced to face the death sentence that has been looming over their heads for years. Can Tyler and Gary re-unite and stay on the same page long enough to complete the job? Or are they doomed to fail? Either way, there seems to be more to the jobs than a simple robbery, and Sheringham's intentions may not be all they seem...

'Claws' Review

So thrilled with the following review for 'Claws', I just had to share it.

'When I reached this story title I was expecting some kind of Cornish sea-monster, but oh boy was I wrong. For me this is the stand-out story of the bunch because it pushed every one of my buttons. It’s setting is an amusement arcade in Newquay. I’ve spent way too much time (and money) in Newquay’s arcades and Steve Jordan captured the essence of them as if he was a local. The characters, location and details are trapped in amber from my time there and the horror is interwoven with such humour that I laughed out loud in places whilst being suitably horrified in others. It’s not trying to be big and clever but achieves both. Loved it.'

You can read the entire review by Joe X Young, which covers all of the excellent stories from Terror Tales of Cornwall in full, here on Ginger Nuts of Horror.

Terror Tales of Cornwall

I'm very pleased to have a short story in the latest edition in the Terror Tales series, edited by Paul Finch. Hugely grateful to Paul for giving me the opportunity to be in print again. The book is available on amazon for Kindle, and paperback.

Cornwall, England’s most scenic county: windswept moors, rugged cliffs and wild, foaming seas. But smugglers and wreckers once haunted its hidden coves, mermaid myths abound, pixie lore lingers, henges signal a pagan past, and fanged beasts stalk the ancient, overgrown lanes …
The serpent woman of Pengersick
The screaming demon of Land’s End
The nightmare masquerade at Padstow
The feathered horror of Mawnan
The terrible voice at St. Agnes
The ritual slaughter at Crantock
The hoof-footed fetch of Bodmin Moor
And many more chilling tales by Mark Morris, Ray Cluley, Reggie Oliver, Sarah Singleton, Mark Samuels, Thana Niveau and other award-winning masters and mistresses of the macabre.
