“The ideas, the language, the grasp of how people really talk, and think, and how close the dark is to all of us… this is an exceptional collection.”

About the Author
Simon Paul Woodward writes horror, science-fiction and dark-fantasy for adults and young adults. He lives just south of London (London, England that is … not one of the 10 Londons in the USA, London Kiribati or 8837-London, which is an asteroid). It’s best to be precise about these things.
Before he didn’t live on an asteroid, he was born in the Midlands, studied in the North and relocated to the South. His accent is a bit of a mess.
He loves Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Clive Barker, Michael Marshall Smith, David Mitchell, Patrick Ness, China Mieville, The Flaming Lips, Elbow, Ennio Morricone, Sergio Leone, David Lynch, David Lean, Johnny Marr, Max Richter, football and running, gin and bagels… but believes marzipan was created by the Devil (after he finished spawning brussel sprouts).
