"The triumph of Everington’s first novel is that, while hinting at lofty literary precedents, it cumulatively takes on an unsettling voice all of its own." The GuardianI'm a writer of horror and strange stories from Nottingham, England. I enjoy the unexplained, the psychological, and the ambiguous in my weird fiction, and this is the kind of story I try and write. My main influences are writers like Ramsey Campbell, Shirley Jackson, and Robert Aickman.My latest collection of stories, 'Falling Over', is out now from Infinity Plus, as is the episodic novel 'The Quarantined City' which was recently reviewed in The Guardian.My first book as editor, 'The Hyde Hotel' was released in 2016.I drink Guinness, if anyone's offering.

Curiouser and Curiouser! I don't know what else to say. I read the second entry in this serial novel last night and enjoyed it. Very strange things are happening. Imagine reading a story and then you look up and real life is imitating said story. For instance-in the book it's raining. When you fi...

I am in the midst of battling a reading slump. Usually short stories get me out of it, and since I still don't feel like starting a novel, (or can't find one that I want to start), I thought I would continue with the short story plan.
