Book Description

A place where your demons won't wait until dark...

In this collection of previously published short stories...

A man and his boy embark on a picnic, but are they the last people on earth...a young man fights insanity after losing his girlfriend to the hollow people...The only surviving member of a murderous gang grows old peacefully in the shadow of a church...until his old friends return with something to tell him.

Here in Falling From Grace are nine tales of suspense, fantasy and horror.


"It has ambiguity and resonance that I admire in good fiction."

James Cooper on Hollow Man


“Epilogue is a lovely little story. Remarkable is the timing with which he’s cued the ending just ahead of the reader’s own revelation of the story’s necessary conclusion. That’s a perfect piece of structuring…”

David Mace


"Why can't you write something nice..." Stephen's Mother on writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ominous... February 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought that some of these stories had quite an ominous feel to them and these are the ones I enjoyed the most. The first one "Home" is about a child who has got the Idea that his parents are planning to abandon him, because they never wanted him in the first place, but are they? The next one was "Perpetual Pupil" - a grown man returns to his old school in order to face the memory of an old teacher of his, and the ordeal he had experienced whilst a pupil. Lastly "Back To Human" - two sisters find that death is not the end, after a fatal car crash leaves them not quite themselves. Also liked "Falling From Grace" as it had the best twist in the tale. Other stories didn't really do it for me, and don't expect outright terror or lots of blood and guts, but has some good stories and is worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars two standout stories; the rest... September 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Somewhat literary short stories, not particularly frightening or horrific but solidly readable and enjoyable. Two of them, "Falling from Grace" and "Perpetual Pupil," are standouts and could be published separately. The others lean too far into the literary, with the twist at the end only hinted at, so's the ending isn't all that clear. The effect of the collection is to water down the two best stories, rather than the good stories supporting the others, which is a shame because those two are pretty darn good.
