One Among the Sleepless
Who is the One?

Is it Peter Reynolds, mild-mannered office clerk pouring petrol through his neighbour's letterbox in the middle of the night?

Is it Wayne Dolan, a man who discovers strange, unsociable uses for his own urine - and an even stranger desire for the lady upstairs with the whip?

Or is it Dusty, a mysterious vagrant who views the world through a pair of 1966 Balorama wrap sunglasses?

Mick Nixon wants to find out, because people are disappearing. And if he and Sally are ever going to share more than just sandwiches, he'd better hurry up, or they could be next.

One Among the Sleepless is a novel set in a neighbourhood just like yours: noisy, angry, demented. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll throw it through your neighbour's window tied to a house brick!

Hall of Mirrors
Tales of Horror and the Grotesque

"This is the way horror audio should be done: Mike Bennett's podcast storytelling is an EXCEPTIONALLY GENEROUS free treat for the ears and the mind. Listen to the Hall of Mirrors, and you'll feel his dark and twisted imaginations fingering their way into your ear canals, his remarkable voice prying into your brain in the most creepiest and unforgettable of ways. 

Hall of Mirrors is a refreshingly fun experience, that's well worth downloading -- you'll love every strange and grotesque moment!" -- Michael Arnzen, Bram Stoker Award winning author of Proverbs for Monsters

Underwood and Flinch
All David Flinch ever wanted was a normal life.
But when you’re a member of the Flinch family, normal has never been easy.
For hundreds of years, the eldest male Flinch has been servant and guardian to the Lord Underwood. While the Flinches have changed through the generations, Underwood, a vampire, has been eternal. David had hoped to be spared the horror of serving his family’s lord and master, but when he is summoned to the Flinch home in Spain by his dying older brother, he knows his luck has run out. Underwood must be resurrected from the grave in a ritual of human sacrifice, and David must be the man to do it. Because if he doesn’t, an even greater evil than Underwood will rise: the evil that is David’s sister.

Underwood and Flinch is an epic horror-thriller that spans the centuries. From the teeming slums of 17th Century London to an ex-pat community in modern-day Spain, this is the new novel from Mike Bennett.
