About Graham Downs

Graham Downs is a South African author of short stories, flash fiction, and novelettes, in a variety of genres. Memoirs of a Guardian Angel is his longest work to date.

He currently lives in Alberton, Gauteng, with his wife and their dog, Becky. He spends a good portion of his free time reading and, as with his writing, he reads books in a huge range of genres and lengths. He’s also passionate about South African authors—particularly independently published ones.

Graham's publishing journey began in 2012, with his first book, A Petition to Magic, which is a fantasy short story about a wizard who refuses to perform magic, and a queen who insists that he do just that. He freely admits that back then, just like John Snow, he knew nothing (now, he knows perhaps a trifle more than nothing).

Since those fateful first steps, he's never looked back, publishing five more books in almost as many genres, as well as getting a story included in the charity anthology, I Am Not Frazzle! (And Other Stories For Grown-ups).

His latest work, Memoirs of a Guardian Angel, was launched on 6 April 2018.

"Heaven and Earth: Paranormal Flash Fiction"s a fast fun read. With six flash fiction stories Graham Downs covers everything from horror to humor. I enjoyed this fast read, however, I do wish there were more stories. I recommend this book to new readers of Graham Downs. It gives the reader a taste of just how talented Graham is, without giving too much away, influencing the reader to explore more into his works.
This is not my first time reading Graham Downs and I will still continue to seek out and enjoy his work. He is a wonderful and intense story teller, a must read author for anyone.

Graham Downs' new offering, "Heaven and Earth: Paranormal Flash Fiction" is a fresh and enjoyable collection of weirdness. It opens up with some straight-up horror with "The Thing in the Window", with a non-Hollywood-ish ending that sets the tone for the rest of the book. The idea could be expanded into a larger story, in fact, and I wondered if Downs will ever do just that.

"An Automatic Decision" was a surprise for me, with a very interesting concept that I quite enjoyed. But perhaps my favourite of them all was "The Christmas Bird." Why? It reminded me of some of the classic "Twilight Zone" episodes I watched as a kid.

All in all, this is a great collection of flash fiction that lets you see a side to Downs that perhaps wasn't so visible in "Stingers" or "A Petition to Magic", but started emerging with "Billy's Zombie". Downs manages to describe settings and scenes very well with just a few words, and I hope we see more from him in this vein. My only wish was that there was MORE.
