I’ve decided to offer the ebook of Dr North’s Wound and Other Stories for a limited period, at the new price of $2.99. Nab it now while the price is low. Here are some reviews of stories within it:
The Anatomy of Seahorses: “With the possible exception of the [Dean R.] Koontz story, The Anatomy of Seahorses by John Dodds is the very best the Horror Express Magazine has to offer.” – Peter Tenant, Whispers of Wickedness
Dr North’s Wound: “John Dodds is one of the most promising new writers I have read for some time. I highly recommend his work.” Michael Moorcock
Second version, available as a free ebook from smashwords, published by my great friends at the admirable Just ImaginitInk.
Adventures in Scifi Publishing said: “a fantastic page-turner…each page is filled with vibrant description and seethes with tension.”
…or a nunnery, if you can’t handle the rough stuff. I highly recommend Donna’s Scottish crime fiction blog, Big Beat from Badsville.
My follow up novel to Bone Machines is called Kali’s Kiss, which will be out soon. Gang crime, ritual murder, witchcraft….what more could you ask for? For publication announcement, and other information, please subscribe to the mailing list.
The edited, revised second edition of Bone Machines, out now in paperback from lulu. £6.50
“MURDER, drugs, conflicted relationships and art. In his first novel John Dodds uses the murky world of Glasgow’s underbelly to explore the true nature of life and what makes humanity tick. The epic film scale style of writing and intriguing ability to jump between character and style mean that John is bound to become one of the next great crime writers” Stornoway Gazette
