Ian Thompson was born in Liverpool, England, but has lived most of his life in a small town in Cheshire. He pursued a career in textiles, including laboratory testing and quality control. Give him some fibres from a carpet, item of clothing or curtain, plus a microscope and some chemicals, and he’ll quickly tell you all about them!
Throughout his life, Ian has loved good tales - whether in the form of novels and short stories, TV shows, movies, comics or video games. He likes fast-paced adventures, strong and unusual characters, gritty action and twists he wasn't expecting. Being taken away into the realm of someone's imagination has always appealed to him and has driven him to create realms of his own.
His debut novel, PARADISE EXHUMED, was released in February 2015 – a murderous whodunit thriller, set in modern-day Britain, with a pair of investigative reporters hunting a brutal and seemingly unstoppable killer. PARADISE EXHUMED is the first novel of the Ray Hammett Thriller series.
For his second novel, Ian released the first part of a war-torn action fantasy: ERA OF DARKNESS – VOLUME I : THE APOCALYPSE BEGINS. This has been followed by three Short Tales From The Era Of Darkness: BLOODFURY & FEAR, OUT OF THE LIGHT and THE FATE OF LUMINAR. A spin-off series of Era Of Darkness Novellas began with SURVIVAL I: SLAUGHTER AT GHASTAR.
Ian’s third novel is a dark horror tale. GOD OF WAR is a story of cause and effect, in which events two thousand years ago have terrible repercussions today. In Ancient Britain, during the Roman Occupation, an ambitious man seeks to create ‘something special’ for Nero’s gladiatorial arenas. In modern-day Britain, a group of cavers discover the results of Roman endeavours... and find themselves hunted by a monstrosity that kills both to feed and to satiate its sadistic desires.
Next began his series of Short Horror Tales – stories designed to offer readers quick reads that are rich in thrills, chills and unexpected twists. This began in October 2015 with GLANCING BLOW - a tale of a simple accident which has terrifying consequences. HOOKER, CHAINED, IGNITION SOURCE, HOUSE OF MY DREAMS and BUG HUNT have continued the series.
ERA OF DARKNESS - VOLUME II: EXTINCTION was released in 2016, forming a devastating conclusion to the fantasy saga.

What is in the hole? What's eating the livestock and binding a family to its will for centuries?
I loved this story! It was extremely well written and very dark. The author did a great job creating a palpable sense of doom that surrounds the main character from the beginning, and then creating more tension and horror as the story went on. Highly recommended!
