Originally only available to DarkFuse magazine subscribers, my novella THE JOB is now available for the first time in ebook (in mobi and epub formats from the usual suspects.)

It’s another in the Sigils and Totems mythos, and another Scottish house needing to be fixed. In this one you’ll find cults, chanting, beer, cigarettes, a guitar, some singing, more beer, and some dodgy Glasgwegians.


There are houses like this all over the world. Most people only know of them from whispered stories over campfires; tall tales told to scare the unwary. But some, those who suffer… some know better. They are drawn to the places where what ails them can be eased.

If you have the will, the fortitude, you can peer into another life, where the dead are not gone, where you can see that they thrive and go on, in the dreams that stuff is made of.

Dave Wilson is down on his luck, with gambling debts coming due. He takes on a risky burglary at a Scottish country house, but the job goes badly wrong, and all too soon Dave is embroiled in a fight he wants no part of—an ages-old battle for ownership of the house.

Opposing factions are at work, and both want Dave’s help. There are demons to fight, both metaphorical and literal, and there are hard choices to be made, if Dave has the strength to make them.
