THE UNINVITED WORDS – STORY ORIGINS

No comments
When I first read Clive Barker’s Books of Blood—only a few years ago, relatively late, but I always say that books don’t have an expiry date—the opening story that served as a setup for the rest totally blew me away.

THE UNINVITED WORDS VOL 1 – AUTHOR’S PREFACE

No comments
Originally, I wrote an author’s preface to the Uninvited Words Volume 1. It didn’t appear in the final copy because I thought it was a little pretentious to include it in a debut short story collection. But while I was going through my files, I stumbled upon it, and I still liked it, so I thought I’d publish it here.

THE REDDENING – BOOK RECOMMENDATION

No comments
‘Bad memories never died. They only blurred, became smooth and heavy and not so spiky and sharp.’

Adam Nevill is one of my favourite ‘new’ authors. Although he has been publishing horror novels for over 15 years now, I came across his most famous piece, The Ritual, only a couple of years ago. I’ve read most of his stuff since, and he never disappoints.

THE FISHERMAN – BOOK RECOMMENDATION

No comments
Every year, I try to discover new authors based on recommendations or just pure browsing, and every now and then I find a gem that changes me to the core. Not necessarily because that particular book is superior to the others (so many great books are out there), but because it touches my dark soul the most, because it pushes all my buttons. Let me introduce you to John Langan’s mighty novel, The Fisherman.

THE HORROR OF BOLOGORSK – STORY ORIGINS

No comments
The Horror of Bologorsk is one of my most successful pieces in traditional publishing terms. It’s been published twice and earned me a semi-pro payment (if you think I could quit my job and live on the Canary Islands, think again — it was enough for the electricity bill, though). Which reminds of the following Stephen King quote: “If you wrote something for which someone sent you a check, if you cashed the check and it didn’t bounce, and if you then paid the light bill with the money, I consider you talented.” Never fails to cheer me up.

It seems right that my first story-origins post is about this novella.
