Paulie Decibels types softly...

It is not a question of "if," as it is a just a question of "when" the British crime fiction wave will wash over our shores.

Over at the other side of the pond, they bring a fresh perspective to noir and quite frankly, it tends to have a little more depth than most (though, not all) of American crime fiction. It is my belief that among those writers to change things up over here, will be Paul D. Brazill. He shifts from the abyss, to humor, to poetry, and all with amazing ease.

I will give you an opportunity to see for yourselves, by giving you two links to some of his horror writing:

His story "This Old House" is up again at A Twist Of Noir, and let's just say Bob Villa wouldn't last a minute in that abode.

And part of Erin Cole's Thirteen Days of Horror, comes "The Friend Catcher."

Paul's one of those guys whose stuff is so good I like to publicly comment such sentiments, but then when I log off the Stevens Tubes, curse and swear at him out of jealousy.

Cheers Cormac. As every, without YOU I wouldn't be writing, I'm sure.

You're welcome and I hope that you will enjoy Paul's writing as much as I do.


The guy is just too nice and if you ever had an online conversation with him, you couldn't hate the fella.

Paulie Decibels,

You know that your writing voice would've been heard without me, it is that strong, hence the "db" moniker.
