  I’m pleased — and shocked — to announce that Wolf Creek: Origin won the best Australian horror novel of the year at the recent Australian Shadows Awards (given by the Australian Horror Writers Association). It’s especially pleasing because it’s such an unconventional horror novel in many ways — the protagonist is the serial killer; […]

Here’s an interview I forgot to post from a few weeks back, appearing on the Monsterpictures site.

  I can now say I’ve made it into my favourite magazine. Canadian horror mag Rue Morgue (which I’ve subscribed to for some years) has an article on Wolf Creek: Origin in their May 2014 issue (#144). I’m particularly pleased Alison managed to include my tribute to Jack Ketchum in there. And many thanks to […]
