A Great Write-up about The Return on the Weird Tales Facebook Page

There have been two great write-ups about my Lovecraftian crime noir horror novel, The Return, on the Weird Tales facebook page.


Here is a small excerpt from David A. Riley's "The Return"

Gary moved as
silently as he could toward the bed. When he was close
enough to see the face of its occupant, he realized there had
been no need for stealth. It was a woman, though she looked
so ill he was sure she did not even know he was here.
Rarely had he seen anyone with such matted, unkempt,
unwashed hair or a face so ingrained with grime. Worse still
were the sores. Some were bleeding. Others were beginning
to weep. While a vile combination of stale urine, feces and
vomit surrounded the bed, so pungent it made him grit his
teeth. Had the woman been left to die? He reached down and
felt at one of the chains. There was nothing between the
manacle and her ankle and its rough metal had chaffed the
skin so deep it was bleeding. What looked like rust was
blood, caked around the manacle in solid lumps. What kind
of people were the Mallesons? Did they like to torture
helpless victims?
Gary noticed something slide beneath the blankets in
his direction. He recoiled as an open mouthed tentacle
emerged and reached toward him, a second appearing a moment later from another part of the bed. It wavered
through the air as if it could smell him. Its hideous, lipless,
toothless mouth opened and shut in his direction. Alarmed,
Gary backed away from the bed. His hand tightened on the
Beretta, though he was too far away for either of the tentacles to reach him."

Folks, if you are only going to buy one book right now then this is it!
David A. Riley's "The Return" is an amazing read. Do you like gritty noir? Brit Horror? Masculine (but not macho) protagonists? Eldritch Horror in bleak industrial slums? "The Long Good Friday" meets "the Mythos"? The writing is dense and sleek. Never boring enthralling page turners. Do you like to read just a few more pages even though you need to sleep? Then this is THE BOOK!

THIS IS ONE FINE HORROR NOVEL!

Songs for Christmas

I honestly don't know which of these two I prefer most. Damn it, I like 'em both!





Nice to see

Nice to see one of my own collections and my novel at the top of the list of books on my Amazon author's page for a change rather than the various anthologies I've had stories in. I don't suppose it will stay that way for long, but it's great to see while it lasts.
