Anne Golden Reviews Shelter for the Damned in Monstrum #4

“Shelter for the Damned is reminiscent of Stephen King in its acute examination of the mysterious pull of place and atmosphere. The descriptions of the shelter are beautiful and evoke a sense of dread I associate with King’s depiction of the Marsten House, the eerie mansion in ‘Salem’s Lot. As King’s work often does, Thorn’s novel also echoes H.P. Lovecraft’s sense of destabilizing ‘outer’ forces (most explicitly when a decidedly Lovecraftian tentacular monster assails Mark in his bedroom). The book takes these elements of Weird fiction and angles them towards the metaphysical.”

Macabre Daily Exclusive: One on One with Mike Thorn

“When it comes to horror literature, there are a few names that instinctively come to mind. Clive Barker, H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe…

As a big reader (and an author myself), I’m always on the hunt for someone new. So when I get a call from my mate, Jamie Blanks, telling me to check out Mike Thorn, I knew he would be the next big name in the horror genre.

After being put in contact with Mike, he was only too happy to oblige this Aussie fan with an interview.”
