Mark Towse blog

Mark Towse is an exciting new discovery. His stories are hidden gems that glint in the darkness. His characters draw you into their worlds, making you care, then plunge you into the abyss, leaving only a memory of warmth. His work will linger in your mind long after the telling. His are heart felt stories with an icy edge. Highly recommended. Trevor Denyer – Editor and Publisher – Midnight Street Press
