New Horror Anthology: Samhain Secrets

Very pleased to have have my 80s-set short story 'Running with the Devil' featured in Samhain Secrets, a new Halloween themed horror anthology edited by J.A. Cummings. As the Van Halen inspired title suggests, this story is a bit of a backhanded tribute to heavy-metal from the 80s. A cold wind. The whisper of voices … Continue reading New Horror Anthology: Samhain Secrets

Rutger Hauer – “All Those Moments . . .”

Rutger Hauer is one of my favourite actors. He brought a menacing charisma to every character he portrayed which I found immensely watchable; plus, he frightened the crap out of me as Roy Batty when I first watched Blade Runner on VHS as a young boy (all those years ago) and that instantly made me … Continue reading Rutger Hauer – “All Those Moments . . .”

Christian Death @ Underworld, London

April 1st, 1998, twenty years ago this month, Rozz Williams, like King Lear's wise Fool, played a final bitter joke on the world and hanged himself. At the time of his death, Rozz had been out of the official version of Christian Death, the band he founded and named as a teenager, for over a … Continue reading Christian Death @ Underworld, London
