Meanwhile, in the Grimdark Land of Grimdarkness…

The first major review of MAKING WOLF is up over at Nerds of a Feather.

“Sometimes, though, novels have no interest in the heights of achievement, in evil as something that can be banished or defeated, in heroes of any sort. In such books, instead of sharing the triumphs of the protagonist, the reader is made complicit in their sins. Making Wolf definitely fits into the later category, creating a rich and haunting narrative that moves with power and destructive energy of a truck tearing a man in half.”

Read the rest here.

It’s a damn fine review, with great insight.

So you might want to buy the book 🙂

In Which I Wax Lyrical About the Making of MAKING WOLF

Short piece in Crimetime about my novel MAKING WOLF:

“I was trying to write a memoir about my childhood, mornings spent fitting my father’s bullet proof vest, changing the number plate of his car, some family friends burnt alive in political violence. Not exciting; terrifying.”

Strong Tragedy, Lingering Power

Review of my Apex Magazine short story Child, Funeral, Thief, Death:

“this character playing a game and finding little fulfillment in it but playing anyway, because the alternatives are equally unsatisfying and, whatever happens, he has his sensitivity to fall back on. An interesting story, with a strong tragedy and a lingering power.”

Sketchiness: Chestiness

Strangely, I haven’t worked in pencil for a while, preferring to use ink.

I decided to explore a medium with a gentler line, and I think it worked.
