Über den Autor
As penance for past deeds, Edmund Glasby grew up in Morecambe and studied Egyptian Archaeology at University College London and Archaeology and Anthropology at Oxford... Morecambe, which has more than its share of the strange and unsavoury, provided him with a better education. After turning his back on academia, he now writes in the genres of dark fantasy and supernatural thriller, having been brought up on horror; his father was John S. Glasby the prolific supernatural writer.
In 2010, his first novel was Disciple of a Dark God, a far-ranging dark fantasy epic. His first collection of all-new supernatural stories, The Dyrsgol Horror and Others was published by Borgo in 20013, and was followed by The Ash Murders, The Chaos of Chung-Fu, Ghouls of the Undercity, Labyrinth of the Lost, Dark Shadows and a novel, Weird Shadows Over Morecambe. For his UK publishers, Ulverscroft, he has also written three detective thrillers, A Murder Most Macabre, and The Postbox Murders, and The Doppelganger Deaths (forthcoming). His latest supernatural collection, Death After Death, was specially compiled for Shadow Publishing
When he is not writing he is the captain of a local archery club and he has won a trophy or two both at local and European level with the English longbow he made.
Professor Mandrake Smith would be unrecognisable to his former colleagues now, but the shambling, drink-addled former Professor of Anthropology at Oxford is now barely surviving in Morecambe. Here he has many things to forget, although some don't want to forget him. Plagued by the nightmares of his past, both in Oxford and Papua New Guinea, he finds himself dragged into a morass of supernatural activity centered around the deposition of filleted corpses in the ancient rock-cut graves at St. Patrick's Chapel, Heysham Head.
Unwillingly drafted into helping the enigmatic Mr Thorn, he grudgingly assists in trying to stop the downward spiral into darkness and insanity that awaits Morecambe, and then the entire world...
