Demonology @ Shotgun Honey

He used to be a good-looking man – until a rent boy with a Stanley knife carved him open from ear to moustache. He fingers the pink scar and shrugs. “Even plastic surgery has its limitations.”

Today I made my 6th (?) appearance at the excellent US crime site Shotgun Honey, with a new piece entitled Demonology.

I haven’t written much short fiction in recent years, so it is satisfying when a new story comes together!

(I enjoyed writing this one a lot, so maybe I’ll revisit some of the characters that Joe Rey encounters at a later date?)

My new book, Ten Pints of Blood – which is out later this month (26 June) – includes an alternative version of a previous Shotgun Honey story, Splatterproof Is Not A Challenge. If that one hits the spot, then I’m sure you will enjoy the rest of the book!
