Killer Creatures – Release Day

Killer Creatures Down Under has now been released and is available for purchase from the usual outlets. Thanks to Deborah Sheldon and IFWG Publishing, it’s a cracker of a read. Don’t take my word for it, check out the reviews or better still grab a copy.

Australia: the land where everything wants to kill you. A continent filled with some of the deadliest animals in the world. From creepy-crawlies to crocodiles, you’ll have plenty to fear in this anthology penned by Australian authors. Killer Creatures Down Under: Horror Stories with Bite offers disturbing tales that range from the action-packed and visceral, through the historical and futuristic, to the phantasmagorical and supernatural. Prepare to confront your animal phobias… And perhaps develop some new ones.

Plus the Ginger Nuts of Horror is hosting a series of ‘behind the scenes’ blog posts by each of the contributors revealing the inspiration behind their tales. You can read how my story ‘The Warrigals’ came about here.
