Campbell Armstrong recommends
Valley of Lights (1987)
Stephen Gallagher
"The author understands that real horror is best achieved in a setting of banality and Valley of Lights - with its unique relationship between spiritual predator and physical prey - thrives on the very ordinariness of things."
The Catalyst (1991)
Ron McKay
"A fine book, a sharp eye for character..."
Sheep (1994)
Simon Maginn
"He's given the horror genre novel a badly-needed blood transfusion."
Die Cast (2000)
(Billy Oliphant, book 1)
Alan Dunn
"Enough twists and hairpin turns to have your head spinning. Terrific storytelling."
