Here're the next few books I'm in/involved with, that're being sorted for release: Phobophobia's official launch is THIS FRIDAY (details here). No More Heroes is due for release any moment now, and Read the End First will probably be ready very early next year. I've also edited/compiled an anthology of time travel/alternate reality sci-fi called A Glitch in the Continuum which is coming out with Pill Hill Press, that should see the light of day before Christmas, but I'm waiting for the revised cover artwork to come through for that before I can properly pimp it.



There is nothing to fear but fear itself...

Twenty six orginal tales of horror by established masters of terror and talented new voices lie within this Lexicon of Fear.
Beware the dark power of words in Bibliophobia... a carnival double act made in Hell can be found in the clown cemetery in Coulrophobia... an artist loses his power to create ice sculptures because of his fear of cold in Frigophobia... but that is the least of his problems as his therapist suffers the same phobia...
The fear of open spaces manifests itself in Kenophobia, a tale of the ultimate emptiness - the Great Void that awaits us all... the fear of beautiful women is fully justified in Venustrophobia, a tale of futile defence against the Succubus...
...but beware: the cure may be worse...
Denying yourself a place in Heaven is one way to avoid Jesusphobia, but the only alternative means Hell to pay... a playwright fights his fear of the colour yellow by creating an unusual addition to his Dramtis Personae in Xanthophobia... a Witchfinder's fear of open water will only be relieved by imbibing one of the two deathly fluids in Aquaphobia... and a widower follows the age-old advice of turning to face your fear in Qiqirn, only to uncover the true nature of an Inuit dog spirit that carries the essence of cold terror from it's ancient homeland into the realm of human grief...
Open the pages. It is time to learn your A to Dread...

On 20th November 2009, a catastrophic event dubbed THE CATACLYSM wiped the world's greatest heroes and villains off the face of the planet, and created a death toll stretching into the millions.
Though most of the world survived, it is now in the grip of super-villains who avoided The Cataclysm. It may not have been quite be the victory they expected, but it is the outcome they wanted: all the heroes are dead and the world is theirs.
Or so they believe...

Read the end First
24 Apocalyptic Tales
24 Time Zones 
Ever wondered how the world would end if you could decide? 
This anthology takes the concept of The Apocalypse a step further. 
24 authors picked their own time zone to destroy.  Each story is an original take on the apocalypse, seriously how fun would 24 stories about giant chinchillas eating us really be? 
Each talented author is weaving an apocalyptic tale to leave you wondering what if the prophecies are right?   
What date should we believe? I have no idea, all of them, perhaps none of them.  The stories in this collection will make you wonder if it comes what happens, and will most definitely give you ideas that never occurred to you before.
