Yesterday saw the wrap-up of my five part Royal Occultist serial, “The Coventry Street Terror”. If you haven’t caught up with it, why not do so this weekend?

All five parts are available on Patreon, and absolutely free to read, whether you’re a patron or not. Just click the ‘serial’ tag, and get started!

And if you’ve already read and enjoyed the story, why not take a moment to vote in this quick poll, regarding the possible further adventures of Baron Vordenburg?


For more on the adventures of St. Cyprian and Gallowglass, as well as past and future holders of the office, take a look at the Royal Occultist chronology on this site, as well as a number of free short stories, available only on Patreon. And be sure to ‘Like’ the Royal Occultist Facebook page, in order to keep up with all the latest news and info on the series!

Hungerpillar

Recently I conducted a poll, asking readers what sort of Patreon story they’d like to read. Sword and sorcery won by a fair margin, and I intend to start work on that story in the next few weeks, but I thought I’d give patrons a horror story involving a coffin, a pond and a county work crew to tide them over.

“Hungerpillar” is a bit of an experiment for me, in terms of plot and pacing. I wanted to try my hand at a proper weird tale, something I haven’t written in a while. Much like “The Bayonet”, it’s light on plot and explanations and heavy (I hope) on atmosphere and tension. I enjoyed writing it, and hopefully, you’ll enjoy reading it!

If you do enjoy it, be sure to check out the other stories on my Patreon page – including a number which are free to read – and perhaps leave a comment, hit the ‘Like’ button, or even consider becoming a patron.
