October 24th, 2020 • Posted in News |

Just in time for Halloween the collection After Sundown has been released. Featuring the new short story Research by Tim. Available in ebook, Paperback and Hardcover, you can pick it up from Amazon UK, Amazon US, or direct from the publisher.

The Studio of Screams has recently been released by PS Publishing. Available in hardcover, or signed limited hardcover. This is a collection of stories based on films that never existed. Tim’s entry is Castle of the Lost.

The fourth original novel from the much-loved space western Firefly, produced with Joss Whedon as consulting editor, set between the TV series and the movie Serenity.

A mysterious star map

On an Outer Rim moon, Captain Malcolm Reynolds ends a card game the lucky winner of an old map covered in mysterious symbols. The former owner insists it’s worthless; back on Serenity, River Tam is able to interpret it.

An ancient legend

River claims the map points the way to one of the Arks: legendary generation ships that brought humans from Earth-That-Was to the ’Verse. The salvage potential alone is staggering.

A drifting relic

As the crew approach the aged floating ship, they find it isn’t quite as dead as it first seemed. The closer they get, the more agitated River becomes. She claims something is waiting on board, something powerful, and very angry….

Firefly Generations is due for release in early November in Hardcover, ebook and audiobook. Pre-order now from Amazon UK or Amazon US.

Next up two Kindle only releases.

Edgar Allan Poe’s death remains a mystery even today. There are many theories as to what killed him. Some people believe Poe’s death was caused by suicide, some believe murder, others consider cholera to be the leading factor, or hypoglycaemia, rabies, syphilis and even influenza. Whatever happened to him, Poe was found in a delirious state and wearing clothes believed to be belonging to someone else. In the days before his death, he was heard to be calling out for Reynolds, a man to which no one knew of Poe’s connection.

This book does not tell you the truth in what happened to Poe. That will remain, forever, a mystery.

What this book does is bring together some of the biggest names in horror – from the mind behind the horror anthologies Masters Of Horror and NEXT DOOR – to tell THEIR version of what happened to Poe in his final moments.

Review over at the Ginger Nuts of Horror site, available from Amazon UK and Amazon US

It Came From the Darkness is a unique collection of drabbles (stories of 100 words exactly) and artwork, compiled by Red Cape Publishing and Philip Rogers 101 PR in aid of the Max the Brave Fund. A huge number of horror writers, poets, artists, and film makers have come together to support the cause and offer the reader something special. Each piece of writing begins with the same five words, but the stories themselves are all wonderfully varied. So dig in, take each tale one bloody bite at a time, and beware of what comes from the darkness.

Due for release on October 30th, and available to pre-order from Amazon UK, and Amazon US

Tom Roberts’ son died in an army accident… they say. But his coffin is empty. Monsters don’t exist… they say. But as Tom travels to his son’s alleged resting place, he finds a mass grave with bodies far from human. No heads, bestial mutilated… and chained together. Death is the end… they say. But then one of these bodies – a little girl – reaches for his arm and everything changes. For death is not the end. Sometimes it’s also the beginning – the beginning of something terrible.

Eden UK release and Silence news

June 11th, 2020 • Posted in News |

To coincide with Eden’s UK Paperback release on Monday, all non-essential shops in England are opening so you can pick up a copy (although I think most of us could argue that books are very essential).

To celebrate the launch, Monday evening at 8:30pm UK time The Ginger nuts of horror and Night Worms will be hosting an official launch event. There will be fun, an interview, and an ask Tim anything. To join in visit this link on the night.

For Eden ordering information and a chance to read some of the great reviews click the cover.

The signed limited UK Hardcover of The Silence is due for release shortly. Limited to 400 copies this also features 3 brand new short stories set in the same world, and exclusive to this edition. You can order it direct from the publisher, or if you are in the US currently Cemetery Dance and Subterranean Press have it available to order, but don’t delay as I suspect they both have limited copies.

Tim was also a guest over at The Super Relaxed Fantasy Club, so if you’d like to hear him talk about books read during lockdown, and One Direction (one of his favourites) then head over to YouTube.
