On January 2, 2012 Dark Continents Publishing and author Daniel I. Russell proudly announce the launch of Russell’s new novella CRITIQUE.
The novella will be launched in e-book format, and will be available on Amazon.com as well as available for download on the Dark Continents website at www.darkcontinents.com
Summary of CRITIQUE:
Sandy Devanche considers himself to be a five star gentleman, although he never gives anyone more than three.
As the harshest food critic in the business, he is feared and respected by the top chefs of the city. On a standard assignment, Sandy visits the experimental restaurant The House of Jacob, run by chef extraordinaire, Jacob Enfer.
What Sandy will experience is a journey beyond flavour and texture, a meal that will change his very existence. The worst thing about the food here is the person eating it.
CRITIQUE. Written to make your life better… or much, much worse.
Since his birth at the stroke of midnight on November 14th 1980, Daniel I. Russell has been attracted to the darker way of life. Raised in the north west of England in Wigan, he was an avid reader as a young child. Growing up in the era of horror bestsellers, the birth of video nasties, cinema blockbusters and bad hairstyles, it’s no surprise that he ended up shocking and repulsing for a living.
Russell has been published at such sites as Necrotic Tissue #1 and Afterburn SF, and print publications Hold That Thought, Midnight Echo 3, Malpractice and Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine as well as audio podcasts such as Pseudopod 199.
In 2009, Russell took the biggest step of his life by leaving England and moving to South West Australia. Following which, he was appointed as associate and technical editor at the now closed Necrotic Tissue print magazine. He lives in Bridgetown, WA with his published horror partner Sherie, step children Mason and Amity and his son Tobin.
2010 saw the rerelease of novel Samhane in print and ebook with Stygian Publications and through Germany, Switzerland and Austria with Voodoo Press. Samhane went on to be nominated for a Tin Duck award for best long work, alongside best short story for the tale By the Banks of the Nabarra, which made the cover of Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine.
Russell is also the current vice-president of the Australian Horror Writers’ Association and special guest editor of Midnight Echo.
CRITIQUE will be available January 2, 2012.
