Dana Fredsti interview

by Peter Ray Allisonon 20/08/2017
To say Dana Fredsti is unconventional is an understatement. Before becoming an author, Dana was an actress and theatrical swordswoman. Dana’s most famous cinematic credits include Army of Darkness, where she was the armourer’s assistant and appeared as a sword-wielding deadite. Since leaving the world of acting behind her, Dana started a career as an […]

Snow in Hell, by Sophie Sparham

by Peter Ray Allisonon 23/06/2016

The Casebook of Sam Spallucci, by A.S. Chambers

by Peter Ray Allisonon 30/09/2015
