Off Flesh-- Andy Frankham-Allen
Andy Frankham-Allen has written variously for Big Finish Books' Doctor Who anthologies, Short Trips, as well as for Noise Monster Productions' Space 1889 audio series. For five years he was editor of the Doctor Who: The Legacy online series of stories, as well as co-editor (and co-founder) of the eZine Pantechnicon. He's currently living back in his native Wales, and is all set to take the publishing world by storm with a selection of short stories, novellas, and the first part of his Garden Saga, Seeker!
Off Flesh is a macabre little tale about a grey man living a grey life who goes to a very grey convention. And there he meets the youthful and energetic Mr Wyndham. The grey life may be boring, but it is often safer. As Mr Jensen discovers when he begins to investigate the sudden disappearance of Mr Wyndham.
Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
It's an intruiging little tale which follows a married man captivated by another, with dire consequences. As one reviewer put it, it's a mix of the fantastical stories by Roald Dahl and the Hammer House of Horror anthologies from the '70s.
Q: Why did you go indie?
I prefer indie publishers because they care more about the author and the art; their driving force is not the big buck sign at the end of the deal.
Q: Who are your favorite authors in the suspense, mystery, horror, and thriller fields?
My ultimate favourites are John Connolly and Karin Slaughter, but I also follow such authors as Stephen King (who doesn't!), James Herbert, Mark Morris and Stephen Gallagher.
