Another brief blog to announce that my short story, ‘Grotto’, which from the title you might guess is rather Christmassy, has been published on the wonderful Merry Gentlemen blog by fellow writer Dave Hartley.
You can read my story here. I’m rather fond of it.
I’m also rather fond of Dave’s collections of short fiction, ‘God Rest Ye’ and ‘Merry Gentlemen’. They’re a selection of dark, dark, Christmas stories straight from the brain-fungus of one of Manchester’s top weird fiction writers. Both collections are absolutely stonkingly good, and at an excellent price too. They make perfect stocking fillers, and clean up blood remarkably well. At night, they will lie on the pillow next to you and sing beautiful songs that you will forget about in the morning, and during the day it will be as though they are whispering to you, wherever you are.
If you do not buy them, they tell me, then the bad things will come.
