In case anyone's unaware, my first ever anthology as editor - TERROR TALES OF THE LAKE DISTRICT - is now available for purchase from Gray Friar Press:

Here's the blurb from the back:

The Lake District land of mountains and megaliths, night-black lakes and fathomless woods filled with spectral mist

The eerie entity on Striding EdgeThe living corpse of Croglin
The demented clown of Muncaster
The winged horror of Langdale
The drowned bride of Windermere
The hairy brute of Beetham
The nightmares on Burnmoor

And many more chilling tales by Ramsey Campbell, Adam Nevill, Simon Clark, Peter Crowther, Reggie Oliver, Gary McMahon and other award-winning masters and mistresses of the macabre.

The book contains ten works of original horror fiction set in the Lake District, and three classic reprints. It also features numerous anecdotal tales concerning supposedly true incidents of Lakeland terror.  More info, artwork, TOC and so forth on my blog:

If anyone fancies seeing the cover for my next Dr Who audio drama from Big Finish, HEXAGORA, starring Peter Davison, Janet Fielding, Sarah Sutton, et al (due out in November), and hearing a rather neat little trailer, there's a new post on my blog with full details and links -

Not sure how many of you good folks can read French, but there's a decent article concerning my forthcoming movie, THE DEVIL'S ROCK, on L'Ecran Fantastique - a French online mag. If you can't read French, it's worth checking anyway as, two pages in, there are some nice gory new images.

For those interested, my Gray Friar press collection of last year, ONE MONSTER IS NOT ENOUGH is now out in paperback.

Full details and links are on my blog/webpage - There's a rather nice review on there, as well, which appeared on Hellforge.

Naah ... probably no more awesome than the next man's, but it's my new one. So if you've no paint to watch dry or grass to watch grow, pop in and say hello sometime.

Promote Your Projects / Dr Who - LEVIATHAN

Sorry if I'm telling folk something they already know, but for those who don't - here's a heads up regarding my new Do Who audio drama, LEVIATHAN, starring Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant, released by Big Finish last week as part of the 'Lost Stories' season.

If anyone fancies being plunged back to the Middle Ages, and engaging with a monster that must register as a nightmare of nightmares, do yourself a favour (and me, of course) - and check it the hell out.

Just a heads up for any of you chaps and chapesses who need more Dr Who in your lives. My new audio drama, LEVIATHAN, starring Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant, is released by Big Finish this weekend as part of the 'Lost Stories' season.

If anyone fancies being plunged back to the Middle Ages, and engaging with a monster that must register as a nightmare of nightmares, do yourself a favour (and me, of course) - and check it the hell out.

Ah - well. I'd be interested to see what he would do with a sequel. Not so sure about the title.

I must agree, Ally. I'm not quite sure what does it for King about that title.

TV and Film / Last night's Who

What did everyone think?

SPOILERS ALERT for those who haven't seen it yet.

I enjoyed it, but wasn't it a bit naughty editing it so tighty as to show the nuclear explosion with everyone still inside the base, and then having them all stepping out of the TARDIS back on Earth?

Also, I thought we could have used the monsters a bit more. But of course they weren't what the story was really about, so perhaps that's a bit of a pointless whinge.

TV and Film / Re: The Mist on DVD
« on: November 11, 2009, 10:20:02 am »
I quite enjoyed THE MIST for all the reasons given. The relgious zealotry got to me a little bit as well - the words 'easy target' spring to mind - though it didn't spoil it for me. However, I feel that, with the exception of CARRIE, I've yet to see a seriously good King adaptation. Kubrick's THE SHINING is generally held to be one of the best, but it has flaws IMO - King himself didn't like it, and it appears to divide fans. I thought that both IT and SALEM'S LOT exemplified the worst of PG-rated American TV horror, being fun romps but basically emasculating the source material. I must admit to quite liking the SALEM'S LOT remake with Rob Lowe. Much sexier, more violent and more frightening than David Soul's effort - if anyone hasn't seen that one, it's well worth checking out.

Never been to a con - should I go? What should I expect? The idea sounds great but am a bit worried that everyone there will know each other and I will end up in the corner pretending to check my phone for texts (again).

No problem at all. Look for the most pissed-looking bastard in the bar, and I'll happily talk to you.  :)
