N.O.G.O.A REVIEW

"If you are a fan of the horror genre, this novel is a must read and my pick for 2014, albeit it’s an unrelenting and at times brutal story which takes you firmly by the lapels very early on and gets firmly, and unapologetically, right in your face."

FILM REC' - BLUE RUIN

As I have an enduring weakness for stories about ordinary men who take the law into their own hands and work their way through a bunch of shit-kickers (can't help myself), I really enjoyed this gripping film. And anyone else who has felt one of their own shoes trying to edge from the path (that we all must walk) may appreciate this story too. In fact, if I ever tried to become an avenger it would probably go "as well" as this ...

What is extraordinary is the budget it was made on and the endearing story behind its creation by two best friends - one acts and one directs. Another sign too that the films I most enjoy will probably be made this way in the future, if they aren't already. If you buy the DVD make sure you watch "the making of" documentary. As one of the many, unknown but excellent, actors put it: Blue Ruin is "Good stuff made by good people". I'll buy that for a dollar.

THE LONG SHADOW OF HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS

"The book is twisted (to say the least) and to make this a simple blog post I will keep it to a one word description. "Creepy""

http://reading4adventure.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/house-of-small-shadows-book-42.html

"a story where disturbing imagery, intense emotions and glimpses of horrors only hinted at merge to create one of the best books of horror I’ve read and also one of the darkest"

My thanks to the reviewers.

N.O.G.O.A REVIEW BY MATTHEW FRYER

"An intelligent slab of carefully-crafted terror, it made me feel somehow infected as though the malevolent forces at work had somehow leaked from the pages. Although as a reader of this book you actually get out alive, the scars might take some time to heal. Highly recommended."

Thank you, Mathew Fryer! In the spare bedroom, we rattle our strange jewellery and roll our eyes white ...

BEESLEY BUZZ REVIEWS NO ONE GETS OUT ALIVE

"This is a deeply dark novel, where it isn't always clear if the things that can be seen, heard, smelt and felt are the sinister landlords, figments of Stephanie's fragmenting mind, or something far worse.

It is a tense, gripping and chilling read."
