To celebrate the forthcoming release of my short story collection, 'Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits', I am hosting a blog award contest - http://www.strangemeninpinstripesuits.com/p/blog-award-contest.html - with some (I think) awesome prizes, incl. books by Paul Jessup, Ramsey Campbell and Lisa Mannetti.

Well I was hoping and hoping and hoping some more that my little collection 'Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits' would appear on the fabled Amazon UK but so far no luck, but it looks very pretty over at [url]http://www.amazon.com/Strange-Pinstripe-Suits-Curious-Things/dp/0982026641/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1287153880&sr=8-1url]

Some fabulous people have reviewed it...

There’s an absolutely wonderful line in one of the stories included in this collection (Trench Foot) which sums everything up about Cate Gardner’s stories, and which goes thusly: “Sometimes Amelia forgot she was living with people who existed on the wrong side of reality.”

                                                        Simon Marshall Jones, Beyond Fiction


Cate Gardner has a way with titles.

The 24 stories which make up Ms. Gardner’s first collection, the aptly named Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits and Other Curious Things, each have a title which is at once both evocative and intriguing. Luckily for the reader, the stories attached to those titles do not disappoint. They are a frothy mixture of reprints and previously unpublished works, but the various themes remain constant throughout.

And also a review over at the Shimmer Magazine blog... "This land may be called Wonderland or Nowhere, but whatever the name, Gardner maps it with careful, melancholy strokes..."  by E. Catherine Tobler (who makes me think of Toblerone - darn). :D

A couple of new releases since I last frequented this post...



This is an extremely layered and complex story, that keeps the readers interest, with the use of some extremely good writing...

                                        ...Jim McLeod at Ginger Nuts of Horror

If you're looking for a dark funhouse ride through the fragile human psyche, led by a talented and impressive tour guide, NOWHERE HALL is your ticket.

                                      ....Walt Hicks at Page Horrific




Plus, my first novella, Barbed Wire Hearts, was released last week...

Finally adding my latest release....



...published by Hadley Rille Books, Dec 2011

"Daniel Cole wants the world to  end.

Returned home from the Great War, his parents and brother in their graves, Daniel walks a ghost world. When players in a theatre show lure Daniel and his friends, fellow soldiers, into a surreal otherworld they find themselves trapped on an apocalyptic path with the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse.

Already broken by war, these men are now the world's only hope in the greatest battle of all."

Peter Tennant has kindly reviewed three of my books (Theatre of Curious Acts, Barbed Wire Hearts, and my chapbook, Nowhere Hall) in the latest issue of Black Static.

"Cate Gardner doesn't write like anybody else. In a field where individuality is prized and having a unique voice is valued above all else, she is a true original, a writer whose work brings to mind the imagery of Magritte as distorted by the aesthetic of Tim Burton, but with a playfulness and humanity that is all her own..." http://ttapress.com/blackstatic/currentissue/

Cate, just wanted to thank you (I don't think I have before?) for recommending Freedom in your interview on the Black Static blog. It's been really useful...
