New writer brings horror back to Scotland

New writer brings horror back to Scotland

John M. Dow, an author from Scotland, has just released his first novel on the Amazon Kindle Store. 'From Within' is a story of gripping terror, unashamedly written in the style made popular by James Herbert and Dennis Wheatley.

With a significant number of sales now under his belt, John has already written his second novel, a dark fantasy story, and is hard at work on his third.

On From Within:

"They stopped, looking around, trying to pinpoint the source of their discomfort. The tension in the air suddenly snapped, released, and with a series of staccato bangs, every door down the length of the street swung open.

From out of the houses and shops they came, shuffling, staggering, and swaying. Fly-by-wire humans, jerking along the street like meat marionettes, with mouths agape and eyes empty. In their suits and their dresses, overalls, smocks and pyjamas, the locals of Wakely marched to their own rhythm of decay to greet the visitors to their town."

Three strangers find themselves drawn to Wakely, a small village in the Scottish Borders, where a centuries-old conflict between two warring Celtic deities is drawing to its gruesome conclusion.

A small boy holds the key to their survival, but first they have to find him. And they're not the only ones looking.

John M. Dow was born in a small mining community in central Scotland and, other than a short stay in Australia, has lived there ever since.

His life to date has been split evenly between writing and technology. His technology career pays the bills and the writing keeps him sane.

To date, he has published reviews and articles for computing and video game magazines, as well as short stories.

From Within is his first novel; a dark and frantic homage to the horror fiction of the 1970s and 1980s.

His preferred genres are dark fantasy and horror, and promises never to feature sparkly vampires. His short stories have ranged from the blatantly surreal to the comedic, and he feels that humour has a very definite role to play in the modern horror novel.

He is currently working on his second book, a dark fantasy documenting a conflict between immortals. The events therein stretch from ancient Babylon to the modern day.
