Craig Saunders is the author of over thirty novels and novellas, first published with 'Rain' in 2011. Stories include 'Flesh and Coin', 'The Estate', 'Deadlift' and 'Masters of Blood and Bone', called 'A rare treat from a master of horror' by The Examiner. Which is nice, isn't it?His writes dark fiction/horror with an element of crime or mystery, and epic fantasy. His shorter fiction appears in various anthologies and magazines. Sometimes he dabbles with humour - but only when he's feeling serious.Born in 1972 in London, England, Craig did some stuff (like growing up - abridged version), then studied Japanese and Law in Cardiff, Wales. After deciding the legal side of the law wasn't much fun, he worked in Japan. Lived there, too. Obviously. Hell of a commute, otherwise. He experimented with jobs as diverse as a translator and interpreter, English teacher, editor, dog walker, carpenter, doorman, and others besides...and hated them all. Except the carpentry bit. I like a nice bit of wood. I mean 'he' likes a nice bit of wood. All so confusing. And possibly inappropriate?He lives in Norfolk, England, with his wife and children. He likes nice people, warm sheds and good coffee.

Wayne Simmons, author of Flu and Plastic Jesus.'Plain and simple, this guy can write.' - Edward Lorn, author of Bay's End. [Deadlift] 'Noir-like, graphic novel-like horror/thriller/awesomeness.' - David Bernstein, author of Relic of Death and Witch Island.'A master of the genre.' Iain Rob Wright.[Spiggot] 'Incredibly tasteless, shamelessly lowbrow, and very, very funny.' - Jeff Strand. [A Home by the Sea] 'Brutal and poetic, like good horror fiction should be...' - Bill Hussey, author of Through a Glass, Darkly.[The Estate] 'A tale that you are unlikely to forget in a long time.' DLS Reviews.[Rain] 'I'd say it's the best book I've read in a year.' - The Horror Zine.[The Estate] 'A horror novel full of emotion and heart.' - Ginger Nuts of Horror.Coming Soon: Unit 731HangmanHighwaymanDeath by a Mother's HandsAs Craig R.

I picked out Masters of Blood and Bone as my next review, because I honestly think it is a little piece of genius expounding the gluttony of power, disguised as a dark fantasy novel. Which was a bit of a blind sight, considering I picked it up thinking it was a Harry Dresden/John Taylor-esque parano...

Another very good title from Darkfuse, which is publishing very original dark fiction that defies any genre categorization with each new work.Very unusual book that plays fast and loose with mythological figures in an a...

“...he hadn’t died, and he kept on not dying, until it had become kind of a habit, like cigarettes and bacon.” I admit that I was a bit concerned when I found out it this had wizards in it. I was thinking, sh*t, there is probably frickin’ dragons in here too. Dragons and wizards are not my bag. (So...

‘Blackness, absolute. No sense of sight at all. Nothing to see. No glimmer, no glow, no spark. No color, not even from her eyelids. She was accustomed to dark— she lived, isolated, by the sea. Darkness there, on a clouded night, she’d thought was the most complete dark in the universe. She’d been w...
