Strange Matters New Printing and Halloween Sale!

Strange Matters New Printing and Halloween Sale!

Spooky and thrifty!


Yes, it’s that time of year again. Halloween, All Hallows Eve, Samhain, Ghostober, whatever you call it.

How could a self-respecting author of strange and sometimes rather dark fantasy not put his book on sale during such a time? When the veil between wallet and checkout is so thin?

You can grab Strange Matters in many eBook formats (including mobi for Kindle) from Smashwords RIGHT HERE, using code RK77F to get 66% off (that makes it $0.99 or £0.81). This offer is only on until the 1st November, so grab a new Halloween read to give you some chills during the strange nights of Samhain!

Strange Matters is a collection of short stories. I recommend ‘They Found Him Weeping’ for something on the horror end of the spectrum.

But wait! What if you like books in paper format? Strange Matters can’t get much cheaper via Amazon, sadly, but it can get and did will have got cheaper on Drive Thru Fiction!

That’s right, Strange Matters has now joined the independent online bookstore Drive Thru Fiction, part of the Drive Thru RPG network. Not only is it cheaper there (£6.49, compared to £8.99 on Amazon) but it’s also a whole new printing format, using Lightning Source. This version of the book has a gloss cover and it’s a chunk thinner and lighter. I’m really pleased with the quality- check it out!


Enjoy and have a good Halloween-


Strange Matters in the Library!

Strange Matters in the Library!

I’m rather chuffed to see my work on the shelves of an actual library!


When a teenager I was, I spent many an hour in the school library. I’m not going to wax lyrical about how libraries are magical places of dreams and wonder (though they are), but it did me a lot of good. I have fond memories of reading and learning, which all kids should do, to whatever degree.

*fanfare and applause and medal from Leia*

Indeed, after many months, I’ve only gorn and dunnit. I’ve finally been able to hold my book in my hand, which is a great feeling! As convenient as e-books are, there’s really something to be said for holding a tome.

Strange Matters is priced at £8.99 at this time (with variance for US and EU outlets). Here’s a handy link!
