I'm a writer of mainly horror, science-fiction and fantasy stories, and live with my wife and cats in County Durham, England. When I'm not being a full-time registered carer, I enjoy writing, reading, watching films and TV, drinking good beer with good friends, and collecting rejection letters.
My horror/fantasy story "Lach Nach N'Gai, With Salad" is to appear in the anthology, "OUR WORLD OF HORROR", soon to be published by Eldritch Press. Other stories [and occasional poem] have been published in small press magazines and e-zines including, "The Colored Lens", "Cthulhu Cultus", "Dark Legacy", "Dread", "Pop Fiction", "The Domain", "The Ancient Track", "Blue Silver Dementia"; "Frightnet", "Nightscapes", "Dark Portal", "Magnetic Fiction" "alt.ghoststories.", "Writers Dungeon", and "Raise The Dead".
My many influences include H.P.Lovecraft, Stephen King, Clark Ashton Smith, Thomas Ligotti, Angela Carter, Sue Townsend and many more.
Of the stories here, UNCONTAINABLE is the most recently written while HUNTING COMP, OBLIVIOUS and CONS go back to the mid 1990's.
Thanks to all who have downloaded, read or reviewed my stories. Like most writers [some don't give a hoot], any feedback is very important to me, and I appreciate every review.
Comments, queries, or correspondence can be sent off to firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @mickcarter78

An entertaining blend of sci-fi and light horror, if you read it, make sure to read the afterword about its origins. I thought it was a wonderfully imaginative take on the criteria set down for its writing.

Exellent science fiction short story about unencountered alien life. A story that has comedy elements that will make you laugh out, but don't be fooled!
An undertone of fear and horror slowly grows throughout as letters are sent too and fro from the mysterious planet and back to earth.
Anyone who loves a good sci-fi yarn such as "the invasion of the body snatchers, or the Thing, should give this a spin for a brand new take on the genre.
