An old man makes a strange deal with the Devil. A harmless-looking woman proves to be a lot more dangerous than she first appeared. A dark lake holds a devastating secret, as does a dismal housing project and a beautiful secluded beach. Learn the origins of vampire-hunter Abraham van Helsing. Visit a weird circus and face your worst fears. What in heaven's name is a 'lighting dog'? And surely crows can't hurt you ... can they?

There’s some gore, murder, and mayhem to be found here, but an awful lot more atmosphere and psychological horror in these stories. And all of them first saw publication in professional magazines, anthologies, and e-zines.

The stories are: 'Headlamps,' ‘Too Good to be True,’ ‘Beautiful Stranger,’ ‘The Waiters,’ ‘The Spanish Portrait,’ ‘Birchiam Pier,’ ‘Hamadryad,’ ‘At the Church of St. Jack the Ripper,’ ‘The Crows,’ ‘The Cat, the Ladder, & the Man Mo Shrine,’ ‘Mr. Smyth,’ ‘Shadows,’ ‘By a Dark Canal,’ ‘The Black Lake,’ ‘Lightning Dogs,’ ‘Siafu,’ ‘The Moon Also Rises,’ ‘The Lords of Zero,’ ‘Child of Ice,’ ‘Misdirection,’ ‘Discards,’ ‘Night Game,’ ‘The Cure,’ ‘At the Circus of the Dead,’ ‘The In-Betweeners,’ ‘Non-Existent Cats,’ ‘The Brother,’ ‘Man, You Gotta See This,’ ‘The Sentinels,’ ‘The Irrigators,’ ‘Gone-Away Bay,’ ‘Streets of the City,’ ‘Our Lady of the Shadows,’ ‘After Dark,’ ‘Pages From a Broken Book,’ and ‘A Matter of Avoiding Crowds.’

I work hard to get them that way, Crich. Which makes your kind words all the more appreciated.

What genre is the novel in Tony, and have you ever considered trying to write a novel length Sherlock Holmes story?

Q1/ Horror. Q2/ Yes, it's just a matter of finding the time to do it. I have a lot of other commitments at the moment (which is good).

Just taking a break, and then my nose is back to the grindstone that is my laptop. Which is not to say I do not enjoy writing ... I do very much. But redrafting especially can be very hard work.
