Smashwords book reviews by Oliver Clarke
- The Ex
on March 08, 2012
The Ex is a fast paced, supernatural detective novel with a welcome vein of black humour running through it. As you might expect from a writer who has written extensively about film, the book is peppered with movie references which give it an air of realism that somehow makes the supernatural elements more believable.
All in all a very entertaining read and well worth the price of admission.

A really entertaining and accomplished collection of short horror stories that reminded me of the pleasure that can come from a well told short as opposed to a novel.
Whilst the genre is definitely horror, there is a tonne of satire and black humour mixed in (as well as some slapstick) all of which works perfectly. Fans of Billson's excellent novels will definitely enjoy the collection, but anyone who likes the horror genre will find something to enjoy here.
My personal favourites were 'Paris When It Sizzles' which offers an enjoyable and stylish antidote to the normal po-faced, survivalist zombie claptrap; and the brilliantly conceived 'Born Again'.
