Ginger Nuts of Horror
Today’s victim is Benedict. J. Jones. Benedict is a writer from South East London who mainly works in the horror and crime veins. He has been influenced by the work of HP Lovecraft, Clive Barker, Graham Greene, Arthur Conan Doyle, Chester Himes, Stephen King, Joel Lane, Paul Meloy, Robert Harris, Erich Maria Remarque and John Christopher. A lot of his fiction deals with London and the oddities that are found in this ancient urban sprawl.
Today’s victim is Stephen Bacon. Stephen was born in Nottinghamshire in 1971, although he has spent most of his life within the confines of South Yorkshire. His parents bought him a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle when he was nine years old, and from then on he was lost to the written word. A library card soon followed, and he tries hard not to feel guilty about lying to the librarian when she asked him if his parents knew he was taking out horror books.
His latest collection Peel Back The Sky, is a fantastic collection, stay tuned for my review of it in a few weeks.
