  1. Paul R. Drewfs

    The Haunting of Gospall teases out the answers to terrifying questions. What if rare brewed nightmarish psychopaths transcend death? What if the equally rare sensitives who reach out to diseased entities can become their targets? The well-written and cleverly crafted Haunting of Gospall operationally answers both questions in the dark affirmative. Thus, does Solomon Strange afford the daring reader the opportunity to vividly experience every bizarre aspect of such deviant aberrations, their sensitive prey, and their innocent victims: past, present and future. ~ Paul R.

    An intriguing, suspenseful and frightening novel – in more ways than one!
    Amazing how an author can draw you in to a world you had never thought of before and make it so intriguing. I loved the nautical theme combined with the horror and the supernatural and felt myself truly drawn to the characters – not always a given. And a shocking ending! Would definitely recommend

    A really well written addition to this genre of fiction. The story is well constructed and research with real care giving the narrative a sense of reality whilst transporting the reader into a dark and sinister place.I would absolutely recommend this new author.
