• Epigram review

    19 May 2022

    There was a nice article on Epigram (the University of Bristol student newspaper) a few months back, listing four recommended horror novels, books that are "bursting with fresh possibilities" for the genre.

     

    When this popped up on my timeline, I assumed there would be a mention for Cirque Du Freak or The Demonata, but I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be Procession Of The Dead -- the very first book I ever published (albeit under a different title) in February 1999, a whole year before my career really kicked off with CDF.

     

    If you're unfamiliar with Procession Of The Dead, it's a strange concoction of a book, blending a gangster tale with a story of the fantastical. It can be read as a stand alone book, but is also the first of a trilogy of books set in the same city and featuring many of the same characters. It's a book that remains close to my heart, even all these years later -- some writers dismiss their early books, but I'm incredibly proud of this weird, genres-exploding baby, and so pleased that I was taking risks and trying to rewrite the rules even with my very first book out of the blocks!!

     

    For more about the book, you can read the review on Epigram by clicking here: https://epigram.org.uk/2021/11/01/book-corner-spooky/

     

    And if you want to buy a copy, you should be able to either order one through your local bookseller, or online through Amazon or any such similar seller.
