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.

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.
