So, who fancies ruining your night’s sleep for the next week or two?  Who has some weird desire to put yourself into a messed-up scenario where you’ll literally be squirming in your seat from phobia-inducing terror?  For some weird reason, god alone knows why, I’m pretty sure almost one-hundred-percent of the horror genre readership will be going “yeah…I’ll give that a go”.  And I don’t blame you all.  I’m just like you.  I crave that stuff.  Well, from a horror novel at least!

So, if you’re anything like me and fancy taking on a tale that’s purely designed to get under your skin, a story that’s sole mission is to have you squirming in your seat, then I urge you to pick up a copy of Mike Duke’s ‘Warm, Dark Places Are Best’ (2017).  It’s 80’s insectile pulp horror delivered on a squirming platter of vileness.

Mike ‘Centipede Horror’ Duke – on behalf of the horror community - I salute you.
