I have a new Royal Occultist story available, for those interested in that sort of thing. “The Black Brotherhood” finds St. Cyprian and Gallowglass travelling to Hampstead in 1924, on the trail of a shadowy organisation and an obsidian mirror. (more…)
The first issue of Occult Detective Quarterly is now available for purchase, and as is only proper for a magazine with that title, it includes a story by me, myself and I. “Orbis Tertius” finds St. Cyprian and Gallowglass investigating a cursed artefact of a most unusual sort, as a monstrous evil seeks to consume the membership of London’s Voyagers Club. (more…)
I’ve been a bit quiet on the work-in-progress front, mostly due to the work in question. I’m knee-deep in the new book, and it’s taking up the majority of my brain space of late. Still, I’ve owed an update for a two weeks now, so…here we go. (more…)
Another year, another Wednesday spent talking about what I’m working on. Start as you mean to go on, I guess. (more…)
It wouldn’t be Christmas around here without a showing from the Royal Occultist. This year, rather than a free story, I’ve gone one better. The long promised audio version of “Iron Bells”, as performed by Richard Gough-Thomas (Charles St. Cyprian) and Ruth Narramore (Ebe Gallowglass) has finally arrived, just in time for some holiday listening.
You can listen to “The Royal Occultist: Iron Bells” below, or download it, as well as the previous audio adventure, “The Royal Occultist: Case Files”, for free from https://royaloccultist.bandcamp.com/ You can also drop a bit of money, if you like, which is always appreciated these days.
And if you’re still in the mood for some horrific holiday tales, why not check out the free-to-download digital collection, The Royal Occultist: Haunted Holidays? It includes several fan-favourite stories, including “Krampusnacht” and “The Dreaming Dead”, as well as a wonderfully pulpy cover by MD Jackson.
