Ginger Nuts of Horror
Today’s victim is John Claude Smith. He is a writer of novels and short speculative fiction in all variations of darkness, from weird to horror to magic realism and more.
Blaze McRob has penned many titles under different names. It is time for him to come out and play as Blaze.
In addition to inclusions in numerous anthologies, he has written many novels, short stories, flash fiction pieces, and even poetry. Most of his offerings are Dark. However dark they might be, there is always an underlying message contained within.
It seems like an age since I last did one of these Five Minutes With Interviews, so today I am proud to have John McCuaig over for a wee chat.
John is a huge zombie and horror fan.He has short stories published in around twenty anthologies and four novels, one a collab with Sean Page.
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.
