About James H. Longmore
I hail originally from Yorkshire, England having relocated with my family to Houston, Texas in 2010. I have an honors degree in Zoology and a background in sales, marketing and business. I am relatively new to the writing arena, having begun in earnest five years ago.
I have three novels out in 2016; the skin-crawling, creature horror; ‘‘Pede’ (published by Black Bed Sheet Books), ‘The Erotic Odyssey of Colton Forshay’ (a bizarro style fantasy, Fat Lip Press June 21 2016), ‘And Then You Die’ – a particularly grotesque horror/bizarro story (published by J Ellington Ashton - TBA), and in 2017, ‘Flanagan’ - a psychosexual horror (Sinister Grin Press).
I also have the extreme horror novella Buds (Morbid Books) out now!.
In addition, there are the short stories; (‘Winning & Losing’) published in The Ripple Effect (Horrified Press), ‘Road Trip Bingo’ (Black Bed Sheet Books’ anthology 'Bumps in the Road’), ‘The Five Towns Pageant’ (J Ellington Ashton ‘Full Moon Slaughter’, Halloween 2016), ‘Zombie Hooker: A Love Story’ (Fat Lip Press ‘Carnival of Gore’ anthology 2016) and ‘Trophy Wife’ (The Creeps magazine, date TBA).
I write screenplays and currently have three under option (a spine-chilling horror, a Tarantino-esque crime caper and an animated family movie). In 2014 I was commissioned by Spectra Records to write a biopic feature on the early life of Bob Marley, and was writer for hire on the Kenyan sitcom ‘The Samaritans’.
As if that weren’t enough, I have written and directed a bunch of short movies, winning Best Director in the 2013 Splatterfest film competition and Remi awards at Houston’s Worldfest Film Festival in 2012, 2014 and 2015.
In my spare time, I pen and perform stand-up comedy on the Houston comedy circuit.
My writing style has been described as uncompromising, unique and entertaining; I combine original ideas with brilliant vocabulary and highly effective yarn spinning in which the story always comes first! Be warned, my work does have a tendency towards the dark side – usually with a rich vein of humor – and there is always a delicious twist at the end!

***** “Very imaginative! Unlike anything I’ve read before. dark, twisted, and bizarrely entertaining.” ***** “I really liked Longmore’s writing. His eye for details. Everything. Normally a writer will be strong in a certain area and weak in others, but this book had a great story line, great character development, great dialogue, great everything!”
Colton Forshay dreams himself into a bizarre sexual dystopia, a world in which nothing is as it should be (it alternately rains semen and menstrual blood), sickening sex acts and sexual violence are the norm and in which the currency is deviant sexual acts.
At first disturbed, then intrigued - and aroused - by his dreams of this other world, Colton is drawn deeper in and begins to spend more and more time there with the help of sleeping pills; so much so that his wife forces him to visit a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist encourages him to explore the dream world - and our hero goes on an odyssey dog, Eric, to discover the disturbing truth behind his dream world.
Colton thus finds himself caught up with the resistance who believe that the government - lead by a telepathic ocelot - is controlling the people by means of dreams of another world that sounds uncannily like his.
The story alternates between Colton’s real world and fantasy dream world and the two become inexorably blurred until at the end, he discovers a disturbing truth that is not entirely against the tastes he has developed.
This is fantastical tale populated by bizarre characters, set in a most peculiar world. Filled with startling, sexy imagery and told with incredibly dark humor, Colton Forshay is both engaging and disturbing.
A genuinely affectionate homage to the creature feature!

Following the savage deaths of two teenagers who broke into the hotel to cavort in the natural underground spa and the discovery of centipede remains over three times natural size, the professor teams up with four of her students to investigate.

The Devil's in the Detail..."
Amateur filmmakers inadvertently invoke a demon when they break into an abandoned school to perform and film an authentic Black Mass for their entry into a short movie competition.
Dave Priestley and his crew film in Watsonville elementary school – the site of a horrific tragedy nine years before.
Tenebrion – the malevolent demon of darkness – makes preparations of its own within the dark recesses of Hell. The demon requires a specific set of circumstances and sacrifices to rend a fissure between the worlds and set free its brethren; it has manipulated humans for centuries to put things into place, and the moviemakers are the unfortunate, final pieces of its nefarious puzzle.
Priestley, ever the stickler for authenticity and detail, accidentally sets free the denizen of Hell.
While Priestley and his skeptical friends attempt to return Tenebrion to the pit of Hades, it hunts them all down – one by one – for inclusion in its hellish gateway.
"It's Hellraiser meets Alien..."

During their annual Spring Break vacation to recharge their batteries and reconnect as a couple, they are waylaid by a perverse gang of misfits in the one horse, North Texas town of Flanagan.
Taken hostage as the focus of the gang's twisted games, the Sewells are brutalized into performing increasingly vicious physical, sexual and emotional acts upon one another, until events take an unexpected turn - triggered by an unintentional death.
As their circumstance descends into the worse nightmare imaginable, the Sewells find themselves involved in an altogether different situation...
A deliciously bizarro, darkly disturbing peek into the world of gainers and feeders: grotesquely obese individuals and those people who facilitate their growth for the lascivious pleasure of both parties.
The heroine of the piece, Novella, embarks upon a journey into the dreadful netherworld that dwells within the obese, fleshy folds of a woman especially engorged for the perverted delights of her Internet audience.
Aided and abetted by a former feeder, she fights to escape before the grim portal closes and she’s trapped forever in the ghastly realm of fat, flesh, and death most gruesome.

Twenty-two tales of disturbing terror and nefarious imagination - the perfect antidote to a peaceful night’s sleep!
A darkly comedic tribute to the much-loved Reader’s Digest series ‘I am Joe’s…(insert body part here)’ and a bizarre parody of the Bruce Jenner story, I Am Joe’s Unwanted Penis is told from the point of view of a penis thoughtlessly discarded as a man is surgically transformed into a woman.
Upon learning if his high-profile previous owner’s regret at having made the transformation, the penis embarks upon a perilous journey for them to be reunited - aided and abetted by a motley, wonderfully personable, and engaging selection of other discarded body parts.
In parts grotesque, laugh-out-loud funny, and undeniably poignant, in others, I Am Joe’s Unwanted Penis is a buddy-story absolutely like no other!
