Much like I did at Christmas, this free story, is my Easter gift to you all. I know, I know, you’d rather have had an egg, but there you have it.
Anyway, thanks goes to Jonathan Ward, Angela Pritchett and Sonia Peacock, for allowing me to use their names for the characters in this bloody little tale. As far as I know, the similarities end there but maybe you want to keep an eye on them…just in case.
This is probably the bloodiest story I have ever written, which wasn’t my intention, but it seems oddly fitting when celebrating a holiday about some guy getting tortured and killed, before coming back from the dead with holes in his hands and feet.
With that light-hearted, if thoroughly blashphemous, thought out of the way, please enjoy your Easter Tale.
I’ve been a bit busy of late, finishing off various publishing projects that need my attention, hence the lack of updates on the site.
However, in between the editing, the formatting and general despair, I managed to pen the following short tale for Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing.
The latest edition of Morpheus Tales magazine is now available and features one of my stories, Goodnight Children, Everywhere.
It is one of my favourite tales and one that manages to make me cry, even though I wrote the damned thing. Heaven knows what it will do to you, gentle reader.
Pick up a copy in digest size or the A4 Collector’s Edition.
Welcome, weary traveller, to the all new Bufton’s Blog. Don’t mind those red stains on the floor there…
The blog currently exists in a bit of a No Man’s Land, as I’m fiddling with the formatting and the menus at the moment and will likely continue to do so for the next few days, so I crave your indulgence.
Once things are up and running, this will be a veritable cornucopia of horror-related goodness – regular columns dealing with specific aspects of our beloved and much-maligned genre, interviews with some of the creative sparks behind great horror works and, of course, shameless plugging of my own work.
Patience, my pets…
