Editorial Reviews


"This isn't just a nod to Lovecraft, it's a love letter, if you want a tense thriller, get it, like now." - Duncan P Bradshaw, author of Class Three and Class Four.

"Truly an HP Lovecraft infected Lord Of The Flies." - J R Park, author of Terror Byte, Punch and Upon Waking.

"The plane crash opening is rock-solid, and the ending nerve-wrenching..." - Duncan Ralston, author of Gristle & Bone and Salvage.

"...reads like an updated version of Lovecraft's more visceral work and chronicles one man's fight for survival against nature and something decidedly unnatural." - Rich Hawkins, British Fantasy Award nominee and author of The Last Plague, Black Star Black Sun and The Last Outpost.

From the Back Cover

Dexter LeGrasse thought he was lucky to be alive.

He was wrong.

The only survivor of a plane crash over the Atlantic, he finds himself washed up on an uninhabited island. Dazed, dehydrated and desperate to escape, he will have to use all his wits just to stay alive in a strange and unforgiving environment. But when he discovers an ancient ruin, he unwittingly unleashes an unstoppable evil and his nightmare truly begins.

Primal, merciless and fuelled by a burning hatred, the creature has a hunger that must be appeased. It hunts Dexter wherever he goes, driving him to the edge of his own sanity, and with time running out and no place left to hide it's escape... ...or die.

A heart-pounding chase across lethal terrain, Maldición splices the rush of a survival thriller with the twisted creations of HP Lovecraft to create a man versus monster tale unlike any other.

He has featured in the anthology collections "Cthulhu Lies Dreaming" from Ghostwoods Books, "Death By Chocolate" from KnightsWatch Press, "VS." from Shadow Work Publishing and "Bah! Humbug!" from Matt Shaw Publishing, and the upcoming "The Stars at My Door" from April Moon Books.
