BANQUET FOR THE DAMNED MARCH 2014 – BACK IN PRINT. A NEW EDITION.

By 24th January 2014Uncategorised

My first horror novel BANQUET FOR THE DAMNED is now available for pre order in ebook and print in the UK, and ebook in the USA/CAN (print will also be available Stateside on export later this year).

I wrote this novel between 1997 and 2001, and it was first published in limited edition hardback in 2004 by PS Publishing. I’m still very fond of the book; it will always be my homage to the horror writers I read when young, or had read to me by my Dad, and it was an attempt to distil a waft of M R James’s curious dark flavours into a novel-length story … two goals I will probably never abandon.

This is also a novel that had it’s covering letter (not the book itself) rejected by every agent in THE WRITERS AND ARTISTS YEARBOOK 2001 (around 40 agencies), because it carried two blasphemous and unpalatable words within a single paragraph: “supernatural horror”. My lowest point as a writer, as I was living like a scarecrow above an old pub in London. How things have changed (for the better!). I invite you all to the table to sample the fare in your own time …
