DLS Reviews talks Shadows and Teeth

DLS Reviews is one of the most in-depth book review sites I’ve ever seen and I’m really pleased to see the positive response they’ve had to Shadows and Teeth…

Man, don’t you just love it when an author’s imagination is able to conjure up something utterly unique from the most unlikely of places?  That’s exactly what author Chris Lynch has done.  Using Aleksey Tolstoy’s classic fairy-tale ‘The Giant Turnip’ as his inspiration, Lynch has taken the story further, wondering off the pathway of its theme, and plunging it deeper and deeper into the unsettling depths of horror.  The writing style remains true to its original incarnation.  Told from the first-person-perspective of our unnamed protagonist, the tale maintains a purposeful air of old school ‘storytelling’ about it.  Combined with the gradual creeping realisation of the horror nestled within, the outcome is nothing short of menacing.  Ingeniously imagined and expertly executed.  Chris Lynch is a writer I will definitely keep an eye out for in the future.

You really can’t say fairer than that. I remember writing most of We All Ate The White Flesh in a cold, dismal warehouse on my lunch breaks from “the day job” – I think my sense of dread and foreboding obviously made it into the story!

Down the Tubes reviews The Dark

Digging around in the deep archives of the internet I turned up a review of the first issue of The Dark over on Down the Tubes.

Markosia kindly sent us an advance copy of the first issue and we’re pleased to report it’s some of Chris Lynch’s best work to date, complemented by some suitably moody art from Lundeen. The story is complex but well realized, with plenty to get you thinking and wondering just what will happen next.


John Freeman has been reviewing and reporting on the UK comics scene for as long as I can remember and, I suspect, a long time before that. Down the Tubes is a cornerstone of the UK indie community and getting a review here, especially one that was so positive, meant a massive amount to me as a writer back in 2010. (Who am I trying to fool, it still means a lot to me.)

Thanks, John!
