Idle Hands is an ancient disease that once tore through the Discard, and if Wild Alan doesn’t find a way into the Black Pyramid to administer the cure to his son, Billy, it will soon be stalking Gleam once again.
“Gleam’s combination of dystopia, mythic quest, music and squishy monsters is hugely entertaining. Fletcher’s distinctive prose – alternating baroque description and brutal action – is spiced with witty dialogue and eccentric characters” – SFX
“Fletcher’s writing is so fresh and distinctive, and his characterisation of Edie, a dreadlocked loner living in a caravan, is so strong that this becomes an enjoyably scary quick read” – Sunday Times
‘The Thing on The Shore is assured, chilling and heartbreaking and Fletcher’s star is very much on the ascent. Fletcher’s characterisation is flawless, he populates his story with a tantalising cast of characters, his prose is bewitching, and the story is a melting pot of SF, fantasy and grim horror and the writer will keep you guessing.’ – Bookmunch
“Strong, convincing characters and great atmosphere. Bleak and compelling, this unusual mixture of grubby social realism with folklore and superstition stands out from the crowd” – The Times
