Thanks for the support, Ross. Much appreciated.

I should add that the book will be the first in a line of short story collections from Gray Friar Press called NEW BLOOD.
Thana Niveau is up next in a few months with From Hell to Eternity. This looks like it'll be a fantastic book from what I've seen of it.

Thanks, Ray. Les Edwards is so talented, I was thrilled to have some of his artwork for the cover. Hope you like the book.

Mike, glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for being kind enough to provide a nice blurb.

Having had the pleasure of reading through this last year, it's a corker of a book! Good luck with it, Steve!

No problem Stephen, it was a pleasure to read.

If everyone who reads my blog buys a copy as a result of the review then there's two or three extra sales for you...

Seriously though, it is a great collection and I wish you every success with it.

A great review by Matthew Fryer on his website, The Hellforge - http://matthewfryer.com/2012/10/27/revi ... hen-bacon/

And I should also add the previously-mentioned review by Anthony - http://anthony-watson.blogspot.co.uk/20 ... k-sky.html
