About James Everington

"It's a special moment when you read a new author and immediately get the feeling that you're onto something special and such was the case here. The stories in this collection are evidence of great talent at work, both emotionally and intellectually stimulating." Dark Musings

I'm a writer of horror and strange stories from Nottingham, England. I enjoy the unexplained, the psychological, and the ambiguous in my weird fiction, and this is the kind of story I try and write. My main influences are writers like Ramsey Campbell, Shirley Jackson, and Robert Aickman.

My latest collection of stories, 'Falling Over', is out now from Infinity Plus and Spectral Press are publishing my episodic novel 'The Quarantined City' in six parts during the first half of 2015.

I drink Guinness, if anyone's offering.

Reviews of The Other Room by James Everington

Maria Savva reviewed on July 23, 2011

I am so glad I stumbled across this collection of short stories. It's original, well written, and one of the best collections I have ever read. Every story in this collection is good. There are some stand out ones because they are absolutely amazing, for example 'First Time Buyers'. I think my favourite of the whole collection has to be 'Red Route', the ending is just one of those that makes you go, "wow!".
It's a very diverse collection. There are horror stories, paranormal, thrillers.
This is an exciting new writer, the kind of writer that makes me proud to be a self-published author. In all his stories he takes you deep into the mind of the characters, so that you almost feel as though you are reliving their story. There are many memorable quotes... always a sign of a great writer in my opinion.
A couple of examples:
"Just the sense of the big machinery of the economy faltering and grinding somewhere... She thought of cog-wheels turning high above her, their aloof motion turning other wheels, and those wheels still others...'

" if the box of their room was just one box inside another, larger one...'

This is modern literature at its finest. Do not miss this collection.
