Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Author of the Hannibal Smyth Misadventures, The Ballad of Maybes series and his first two books, Passing Place and Cider Lane, Mark Hayes writes novels that often defy simple genre definitions; they could be described as speculative fiction, though Mark would never use the term as he prefers not to speculate.

When not writing novels, Mark once had fleeting renown as a dancer on the shores of midnight and was born on the same day that Lovecraft died, though he swears these events are not related.

He is also a 9 n’tupence Dan Black Belt in the ancient Yorkshire martial art of EckEThump, favours black eyeliner and believes in a one man one vote system but has yet to supply the name of the man in question.

Mark has also been known to not take writing his bio very seriously.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on September 26, 2016
This book is an (unexpected) gem as far as I am concerned. I read the writer's first book as well, which was also an enjoyable read, but this one fitted a lot better with the genre I normally read. It's a very interesting mixture of fantasy, horror, a doorman with a past, a club with a forest attached, an engaging personal journey...all mixed with a bit of suspense.
...oh, and there is a cat. An odd one...
In summary, it combines many different things with a story that goes nowhere and everywhere, and I will be waiting impatiently for the sequel....
