WARNING! Simon Clark is one of a handful of dangerous & subversive “newbreed” Horror & SF writers on the international scene who are kicking the bricks out of the walls of “safe”, “established” genre fiction, pillaging the readers’ perceptions with utter, mind-shaking weirdness, & setting themselves up as the New Wardens of the Asylum.

Simon Clark writes a mean, lean, highly-charged prose that is at once: poetic, wired, nightmare-hyperreal in its intensely focussed images, & always confrontational in approach & subject matter.

BLOOD & GRIT is the first collection of Simon Clark’s razor-edged fiction.
