Less Is Never More, More or Less – TIH Column

About a decade and a half ago Keith Tyson, a conceptual artist and childhood friend of mine (who would later go on to win the Turner Prize), invited me to one of his shows.

It’s been a while since I did a ‘Who the F*** Is...? feature on this blog, focussing on writers and comic artists who aren’t anywhere near as celebrated as they should be.

FUQ ME!

As a writer there are many questions you are frequently asked, not least the least of which are: ‘Do you actually get paid for this?’ and ‘When are you going to get a proper job?’ Occasionally, in the course of being interviewed, I am asked questions that no sane or decent person should ever have to answer, which is most probably why they were levelled at me.

Look Out For Stuck On You and Other Prime Cuts

It’s safe to say that Jasper Bark occupies a unique position amongst British horror writers; his work is by turns scary, funny and gleefully taboo-breaking.

The Weird World of Bill Alexander – Latest TIH Column

There is a lot of talk amongst the Horrorati at the moment about Quiet Horror.
