synopsis of a witch Tales of Blood and Sulphur

Eleven Tales steeped in Blood and reeking of Sulphur

J.G Clay takes you on a journey through the voids of Reality and into dark places where demons, mutants and inter-dimensional creatures taunt, taint and corrupt Humanity. Survival is not guaranteed, sanity is not assured and death lurks in every corner. These are the Tales of Blood and Sulphur: Apocalypse Minor; eleven twisted tales of terror and mayhem…………..

There are cracks in the skin of Reality. Some are microscopic, others are as wide as a four-lane motorway. As the fault lines increase and widen, the door to our world shines like a beacon in the darkness, a warm and inviting sight to others beyond our understanding. When They cross over into our realm, The Tales begin……

A gambler taking one last desperate throw of the dice. A struggling writer making an unholy alliance. An eternal being fighting to stay alive in the financial capital of India. A man burdened with a terrible town secret. The Law Enforcers who must never cry. The End of Days live and direct from the rural heartland of England….

The blood is warm, the sulphur is burning, the tales will be told, the Apocalypse Minor is imminent!

Review of a witch

Tales of Blood and Sulphur, is J.G Clay’s debut novel, and what a debut it is!

Now I’m not really a fan of horror books, or movies for that fact, not that I’m frightened by them, I just find most of them too far-fetched, and that bores me. If I want to be scared by something, I want it to seem as realistic as possible, and most of the stories in this book are just that, realistic, and that’s what frightening about them.

If you’re a fan of horror books, or you are just getting yourself into the Halloween spirit, then you are going to be in for a real treat as Clay really knows how to tell a terrifying tale in all it’s blood and gore.

The book comprises of eleven short stories, all horror based, from the classic to zombies, and even aliens. There is a good mixture to sink your teeth into (pun intended)!

The stories, all being short, have a steady pace so you don’t get that lull that you get in full-length novels with a slow middle. This is ‘in your face’ horror, from being to end.

I enjoyed all eleven of the stories and thought each was equally as scary as the next. This is a book to read in the daytime, or you may end up having a nightmarish sleep – you have been warned!!

About the author of a witch

J C Clay

Born in the leafy peaceful surroundings of Leamington Spa, J.G Clay is the Midlands Master of The Macabre. Now in his early forties and residing in the leafier English county of Northamptonshire, Clay’s boyhood dream of bringing his unique combination of cosmic horror, dark fiction and science fiction to the masses is being realised. With the first volume of ‘The Tales of Blood And Sulphur’ under his belt, he is poised to unleash Gods, Monsters and weird events upon the world. Under Clay’s guidance, the Dark will become a little darker and Horror will go One Step Beyond.

When he is not destroying worlds, J.G likes to spend time with his family and friends, exploring the world of bass guitar, adding to his eclectic collection of music and watching as much geek TV and film as his eyes and brain will allow. He is an avid reader and a long suffering but ultimately optimistic fan of Birmingham City FC.

He hates cucumber, extremists of all stripes and colours and reality TV shows.
