Mike Bennett Podcast

Tuesday, 30 March 2010


I created this image for my good friend Mike Bennett as an illustration for one of  his short stories Hair & Skin.

In Mikes own words:
 For millionaire, Charles Mason, when every known, legal hair transplantation method has failed, it's time to embark on a journey into the unknown, the illegal... and the horrific.

The scene above shows poor Charles Mason having umm a problem or 2 - but if you want to know more, then you will have to listen to the story available from itunes or Mike Bennetts sites , the links to the sites are on the left

My (Short) Review of Underwood & Flinch

Mike Bennett is probably the most talented literary talent to take on a classic  vampire novel. It is beautifully written and certainly has more literary merit than the vampire stories inhabiting pop culture now. The story is a grand sweeping tale spanning, locales and many exciting events with iconic characters. Mike is a wonderfully Gothic writer writer whose talents far outshine those of Stephen King and others in the field. I even found myself comparing the writing to H.P. Lovecraft, which is high praise indeed coming from a Lovecraft fan like me.
