Frontlines - now live!

War of the Worlds:Frontlines is now available from the awesome Northern Frights Publishing.

'No one would have believed that in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched...

These words marked the beginning of H.G. Well's classic science fiction novel The War of the Worlds...and marked the end of man's child-like belief that we are alone in the universe. Published in 1898, The War of the Worlds is one of the greatest works of science fiction ever written, and it cemented H.G. Wells' legacy as a founding father of science fiction.

A 1938 radio play by Orson Welles caused mass panic when it hit the airwaves, and frankly we haven't been able to trust aliens ever since.

Here now, are bold new visions of Alien and Human conflicts on many different fronts.'

Bovine Intervention and Available Terrors

Great news this morning! My story An Unfortunate Incident at the Slaughterhouse has been picked up by the wonderful Comet Press for their summer-release Sick Things anthology. The theme of the book is 'extreme creatures' and mine, as the title kinda sorta gives away, is about cows in England turning the tables on their human slayers. Bad Beef, Brazen Brisket, Sick Steak, all could have been working names for this one but it was actually written under the awful title of Bovine Intervention.
A June release looks likely, and I'm extra-excited about this one as the previous collection from Comet, Vile Things, included big-hitters Ramsey Campbell and Graham Masterton so I can't wait to see the line-up for Sick Things!

In other news, the Night Terrors collection from Blood Bound Books is now live on Amazon
