And so, my friends,’ he said, looking back at each one of us in turn, ‘it falls to me to pass this burden to someone other than myself. I dare not ask, yet I hope that you will take it for me. The statue must be recovered and destroyed before these men find it.’

My new novel, The Express Diaries - a tale of darkness and adventure set in 1925 on the world's most famous train - has just been printed as a luxury hardback edition with 16 colour plates and illustrated throughout by Eric M. Smith.

It is now available to purchase at Innsmouth House, and will soon be available on Amazon as both a hardback and an eBook. For more details have a look at it in the publications section.
