We Used Dark Forces

Posted in FILM with tags , , , , on November 1, 2020 by dcairns

My first novel (evah!), We Used Dark Forces, a Lovecraftian dieselpunk comedy about a group of mad scientists using perverted science to try to win WWII for Britain, is now available to buy on Kindle from Amazon. For instance, in the UK and US.

Thanks to Danny Carr for the fantastic cover art, and Sue Osmond for the photo of the man and Steven McNicoll, the man.

It looks like I’ll probably do some paperbacks a bit later.

Meanwhile, you can SEE two of the book’s protagonists in action in the short film THE NORTHLEACH HORROR, which stars Freddie Fox as the horribly sane mad scientist Whitsuntide and the above-mentioned Mr. McNicoll as his faithful chum, McWheattie.

I seem to have written a novel, entitled THEY USED DARK FORCES. Amazon is currently in the process of publishing it.

More soon… above is a teaser video by the estimable Danny Carr.

UPDATE: it’s here.

Presenting Natan

natanI’m happy to say you can now all watch NATAN, the documentary Paul Duane and I made a few years ago, at this link.

It contains some strong, unpleasant imagery, but has been described as “essential viewing for cinephiles.” I might not go that far, except that if you don’t know much about Bernard Natan then you should and this film would allow you to do so in just over an hour.
