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 mickcarter1978@gmail.com or on Twitter @mickcarter78

Enjoy.

The next story to be published here will be ???

Review by: Rob Wilkins on Feb. 09, 2013 :
An enjoyable tale concerning a mixed alternate history, this tale is quite different from the other things I've read from this author. Again, although I now have a complete copy of Lovecraft's work, I still haven't actually read it, so I can't draw comparisons between the two styles; but I found the tale enjoyable and pleasantly mellow.

Review by: Jamie J. Buchanan on Dec. 11, 2012 :
Very Lovecraft in its style and content indeed (which is good because I'v always liked his work). Its easy to read, despite a tight narrative that gives us the information we need in a short space of time. Well done

Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on Dec. 02, 2012 :
Here's a courtroom-drama with a twist as we find out more behind the man on trial for stealing an ancient Mayan treasure.

This is another well told weird tale by Mick Carter that he wrote back in the late 90's (probaly around two or three years before I knew him)that will appeal to all fans of Lovecraftian stories and the like.
