The Monk

RasputinTheMadMonk_9125“A bad composition carries its own punishment—contempt and ridicule; a good one excites envy and entails upon its author a thousand mortifications; he finds himself assailed by partial and ill-humored criticism; one man finds fault with the plan, another with the style, a third with the precept which strives to inculcate; and they who cannot succeed in finding fault with the book, employ themselves in stigmatizing its author: they maliciously rake out from obscurity every little circumstance which may throw ridicule upon his private character or conduct and aim at wounding the man since they cannot hurt the writer.”

Matthew G. Lewis, M.P.


The Prozess Manifestations from Zagava

prozessMy sixth collection of weird fiction tales will be published by Zagava at the end of November or beginning of December this year. I am afraid it is a return, on my part, to full-on frightfulness. Further details can be found here:


I would urge any interested party to order it now. Stocks of this first, limited edition will doubtless be exhausted very quickly and become a valuable collectors item in the future.
