BBC DRAMA

INTRUDERS, THE FALL, THE MISSING and now REMEMBER ME. In so short a space of time, my faith and interest in BBC drama has rocketed. It may even be the first time ever that I have struggled to keep up with four BBC shows all running at the same time. At this rate I'll be buying the Radio Times again.

TWITTER - I HAVE SIGNED UP

I've heard many tales about Twitter from the disgruntled, and that it is a(nother) great sea of madness – in that case I may be able to contribute my own brand of dysfunction. But I have launched my black ship and it is bristling with pikes and cannon, skippered by a lunatic, navigated by a squid, and manned by devil clowns, so feel free to befriend me, board me, tweet me, advise me, or whatever the hell you do on there. It'll be a while before I understand how it works and until I am awarded a certificate of basic competency (tried to download the early learning centre version but it doesn’t exist).

The most off-putting thing for me has always been the word limit - even my shopping lists run to 120K words. Anyway, I have started as I mean to continue with a suggestion of intent: horror with occasional silliness. I will keep it clean and make sure that my black robes are tucked in.

AN INTERVIEW WITH THE QUIETUS

"Sean Kitching speaks to horror novelist Adam Nevill about victim misogyny in horror films, picking apart the myths of history's notorious psychopaths in his latest book, No One Gets Out Alive, the literary brilliance of True Detective and not being the British Stephen King".

I really enjoyed taking part in this lengthy interview with Sean Kitching, over at The Quietus. Thanks in advance to anyone who checks it out.

Psychopaths, cult leaders, victims, the King, horror films – how my winter nights fly by!

N.O.G.O.A REVIEW ON STUDY PARANORMAL

Nice review to wake up to over at Study Paranormal:
 
"The author seems to have the ability to take gritty reality and shape it into something sinister and otherworldly. The story follows Stephanie, who, in desperation, hires a room in a less than desirable location. The landlord appears crazy, the property seems inhabited by something inhuman, and disembodied voices haunt the neglected hallways at night. All of this alone creates the ingredients for a scary story, but Nevill takes it further, exploring the psychological and emotional darkness that haunts our central character as she tries to survive the reality in which she finds herself."
 
In the darkness beneath my bed "they" skitter about with thanks, Fiona Dodwell.

A NEW AUTHOR PAGE ON FACEBOOK

I've started an author page on Facebook, partly as a way of establishing some control over my name and books (quite surprised to realise that I can't have my own name on both Amazons or Wikipedia, or on here either - the L.G comes in handy). I've avoided one of these pages for five years due to time constraints and capacity - same reason that I am not yet on Twitter - but along with my participation on Good Reads, my Facebook personal page, my website and blog, I realised there was actually three minutes in each day in which I am not working or involved in child care, so have decided to annihilate such a decadent period of time by filling it with yet more media.

You can expect more mad pronouncements here, and more examples of my loathsome visage and news of the hideous books that I write, plus other stuff that I haven't even thought of yet. If you want to like the page I am here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Adam-Nevill/742591085788764

If you don't like it nothing will be held against you, though a file on you will be kept for administrative purposes in the Book of One Hundred Chapters.
