“Welcome to Tuesday the 23rd of October, the day I’ll kill my sister and start a war with the undead.”
A family tragedy.
A boy haunted by guilt.

SHORT AUTHOR INTERVIEW
Q: Is Scrimshaw a sequel or prequel to All The Dead Things?
A: Good question. The answer is that it’s not either! It’s set before the events of All The Dead Things – in the same world – but with a new set of characters.
Q: So, can you read the books in any order?
A: Yes you can.
Q: What genre would describe the book as fitting into?
A: It’s Dark Fantasy-Horror.
Q: And why a novella, not a full novel?
A: The story just seemed to fit this form. It’s just under 30,000 words, so it isn’t a short novella.
Q: Do you plan to write more books in the Deathlings Chronicles?
A: Yes I do. I have plans for another novel and several shorter stories.
