The sixth Paladin is another Yorkshireman – Ryan Bracha (the others so far: Darren Sant and my good self). His fingers are probably all blurred as he writes, because he has a ton of stuff out there, including his The Dead Man Trilogy and the fabulously titled Strangers are Just Friends You Haven’t Killed Yet. The latter is set in my hometown of Sheffield, so I need to get involved in that beast. 

Ryan Bracha’s real name is actually Bertha, and he’s a middle aged woman. Nice.

His story in the collection is Uncle Jim – a story that’ll “get under your skin.” Looking forward to it.


is released towards the end of February. All profits will go to fighting Multiple Myeloma, the cancer which the magical Henrietta Furchtenicht fights with such determination. 

I hope you all get involved.
