Fay Knight


Born in London, moved around a number of other UK cities. Real life is far more bizarre and interesting than any world that fantasy writers could create; I try to bring the surreal into mundane everyday reality in my own work.

Every small town has its own subculture of goths, geeks, role-players and any other outsiders who tend to band together for safety. Little End is no exception; the local role-players are a harmless lot who keep to themselves, until strange events in the area force them to take action. A cast of outsiders, eccentrics and a very angry cat all feature in this comic fantasy novel.

  • Youth and Beauty on Aug. 13, 2011

    Fascinating idea for a story, and overall it worked well. I'd have preferred it if the characters had a little bit more background detail to bring them to life; but in spite of that I was still able to sympathise with the main protagonist.
  • Seeing Things on Aug. 13, 2011

    Just the kind of contemporary fiction I love - urban fiction with a supernatural twist, a fast-paced plot, and written in a humorous and engaging style.
  • The Old Lady That Tends the Graveyard. on Aug. 14, 2011

    Lovely idea, but needed a bit more character development to really do it justice.
  • Mean Little Kitty & Waiting Room at the Hero League on Aug. 14, 2011

  • Courting the Beast on Aug. 17, 2011

    An extremely funny read.
  • ArdinĂ©a on Aug. 18, 2011

    Religious proselytising masquerading as fantasy fiction, with a vague rambling plotline that doesn't hang together at all well. It was as if the writer had attempted to put parts together from an assortment of her favourite stories; which *might* have worked if she'd sat down and given the idea enough structure to start with. Nonetheless the sheer conviction behind it all kept me reading to the end; and she writes well in spite of the incoherent plot. Worth a read if you have an idle afternoon to kill, but don't expect it to deepen your understanding of either fairy folklore or Christian doctrine.

    Only a very short story, but very evocative and left me longing to know more.
