About James Everington

I'm a writer from Nottingham, England and I mainly write short stories. Most of what I write is dark, supernatural fiction, although not necessarily 'horror' in the blood and guts sense. My main influences are writers like Ramsey Campbell, Shirley Jackson, and Robert Aickman.

My latest book, 'Falling Over', is out now from Infinity Plus.

I've had stories published in magazines like Supernatural Tales, Dark Moon Digest and Morpheus Tales, and the anthologies Pulp Ink 2 and Off The Record 2.

I enjoy the unexplained, the psychological, and the ambiguous in my weird fiction, and this is the kind of story I try and write.

I drink Guinness, if anyone's offering.

Review by: Darcia Helle on Sep. 20, 2011 :
James Everington has the rare ability to spark all of my senses as I read, without ever using wordy descriptions. One or two short sentences and I can feel the character's fear and confusion. I see the scene, taste the dust and dirt. And I can almost hear the characters breathing. From the very beginning, I was totally immersed in this story.

The Shelter incorporates a little horror, a lot of psychological suspense, some paranormal aspects and mystery. This could be a tale of madness or redemption. Either way, you won't want to put it down.
