Receiving books from authors and publishers is a genuine thrill for me. I take it as a sign that my Blog and how I review are moving in the right direction. I’m incredibly passionate about the genre and love nothing more than reading new and exciting titles. So you can imagine how I felt when I opened the parcel that arrived for me this morning, inside a brand new journey for me to go on, an advance copy of one of favourite authors books to review, I’m delighted to have this beauty in my hands…
All my thanks to Paul at Earthling Publications!
A novel in six novellas
A Man In Slices – A young man wants to prove to his long-distance girlfriend that they have ‘legendary love,’ better than Vincent van Gogh, so he sends her more body parts that just his ear in the mail.
Kamp – A man so horrified of encountering a ghost that he sets up a series of ‘ghost traps’ all over his apartment, desperate to catch one before it can sneak up on him.
Happy Birthday, Hunter! – Big game hunter Neal Nash leaves his own meat-themed birthday bash to go hunting for Goblin’s hallowed (and protected) Great Owl. But the North Woods are unkind at night.
Presto – In the pages of Presto magazine, a young boy reads that his favourite magician, Roman Emporer, is coming to town. Problem is, Pete doesn’t know that Emporer’s magic is real, and his latest trick involves audience participation…a little boy volunteer.
A Mix-Up At The Zoo – Dirk Rogers works at both the Goblin Slaughterhouse and the Goblin Zoo, but the workload is really getting to him. Will he be able to separate the two jobs on the night he finally breaks down, or will the slaughterhouse and the zoo overlap in his cracked, dark mind?
The Hedges – A young girl finally reaches the end of Goblin’s biggest tourist attraction, The Hedges. But what she finds there sparks a mad chase between the owner of the Hedges and the Goblin Police, through the streets of the rainy city and into the terrible North Woods.
The author of Bird Box and Black Mad Wheel welcomes you to Goblin. May your night there be wet with rain, breathless with adventure, and filled with fright.
Due for release November 1st 2017 and published by Earthling Publications
