ImageThe first draft of horror Magick is now complete. It is 80,000 words long. 

The story centres on Boleskine House, one-time residence of occultist Aleister Crowley. Four friends decide to spend a weekend there for a reunion in advance of a forthcoming wedding. They awake long-dormant horrors as the tensions between themselves spill out into the open, revealing secrets from the history of the house, from their own pasts and from Crowley’s disastrous Abra-Melin ritual.

A horde of possessed pigs run amok, ghostly severed heads appear from nowhere, there are plagues of flies and maggots, the appearance of flame-blackened skulls heralds the echo of an long-ago church-burning, a butcher severs his hand in a macabre accident, a visiting BBC film crew are plagued by insects and call on a priest to perform an exorcism, a goat-headed demon looms from a mist-shrouded hilltop, something monstrous rises to the surface of Loch Ness,the friends flee the house in terror after re-awakening the demons of the ritual and stumble upon an underground secret and a skeletal figure rising from a crypt…

Will any of them survive with bodies, minds and souls intact?

Publishers, please form an orderly queue… 😉
