Dan Soule

I sit here, writing from my crypt, Cassandra, my one-eyed cat psychopathically keeping down the rat population around my feet. We’ve had a particularly good crop of fungus from the walls this year. Come the winter we’ll be well fed but our dreams will be plagued with stomach cramps and terrible hallucinations. But it fuels the writing.

If you are feeling brave, take a look around, browse the stacks before the damp destroys the parchment. Fortunately, if you like what you see copies are available for your ebook readers or to buy from various codex emporiums.

You can sign up for a newsletter, if so inclined. Sadly, I’ve discontinued the vellum edition. We ran out of baby goats when the geese guarding the graveyard became rabid. We do so love to hear from the living, and pass on stories of what we’ve been up to, here in the imaginarium.

So until you dream, safe travels. But remember, don’t stray from the path…

The Ripper copycat murders are on the front pages, and Dylan is just a paperboy forced to deliver drugs along with the morning news. When a new house appears on his paper round, fate pushes Dylan into a rival gang’s territory. Risking being stabbed and robbed, he delivers the paper to 25 Gallows Court. But there’s something not quite right about the rundown house… On the backstreets of London, where life is cheap, there are always deals to be made. Dylan might want to be a little more careful with whose offer he takes. Because what he gives away might wake up something far worse than the murderer stalking the women of Whitechapel. Read more…
