Hi, thanks for visiting the site!

 

 

A GEOGRAPHY OF HORROR

 

I’ve been working on it – on and off – for quite a while, but it’s finally finished! A Geography of Horror is a book that brings together two things: my love of
short supernatural fiction,
and of the landscape and the coastline here in the county
of Suffolk. Actually, make that three things: my love of designing books too.

SLOWLY, AND THEN ROUND AGAIN

I contributed an essay to the Harry Ransom Center’s online forum ‘What is Research?’, based on my experiences researching the Center’s Emery Walker archive.
