About Michael Carter




I'm a writer of mainly horror, science-fiction and fantasy stories, and live with my wife and three 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.

In the past I have had stories published in small press magazines including, "The Colored Lens", "Cthulhu Cultus", "Dark Legacy", "Dread", "Pop Fiction", "The Domain", "The Ancient Track", "Blue Silver Dementia"; e-zines and websites, "Frightnet", "Nightscapes", "Dark Portal", "Magnetic Fiction" "alt.ghoststories.", "Writers Dungeon", and "Raise The Dead".

After a ten year break, and thanks to friends Jonathan Strickland and Robert Wilkins, and my wife, I am seriously writing again, trying to catch up on a boat-load of new ideas, and sending them out into the world. My newest success is my short science fiction story 'Cuts', which appeared in 'The Colored Lens', Winter 2014 Issue.

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, DREEK MIDWINTER and EYE CHECK are 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.

Review by: Ray Daley on June 10, 2013 :
Kinda reminds me of Ray Bradbury's "A Sound of Thunder" which inspired the story which inspired you.

Nice twist at the end and the science sounds pretty cohesive too!

Oh, and thanks for all the reads & reviews. Most appreciated.

If Gene Roddenberry and Philip K. Dick ever had a baby, it would be this story. Fascinating, very smart, and entertaining.

Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on Oct. 15, 2012 :
Dino hunting story about a guy seeking to bag himself a Jurassic prize. An interesting and fast paced romp with comedy elements (eg_man has gunfight with an unarmed tree...tree loses), sci-fi techno twaddle and DINOSAURS!!!

Let's face it. What's not to like.

If the three events combined does not float your boat then you should really go back to your stamp collection, knitting, watching paint dry,etc., or whatever other dull and boring past time you have and leave the dino hunting to the rest of us.
