SHOW-OFF AND TELL #16 - James Newman - People Are Strange

#16 in this feature takes me back to one of my favourite discoveries (for me) of this past couple of years, James Newman. I have already shown off my copy of Widowmakers. If you didn’t see it then you can have a look at it here.

When I received that copy, the box felt a little bit heavier than normal.

That could have been because Widowmakers weighs more than a house brick but it was also because Mr Newman had included this little beauty in the box. People Are Strange.

This is James Newman’s first collection of short stories. And what a collection it is. It is full of every variety of horror and dark fiction story you could ever wish for.

This copy is also signed by the cover artist, Alex McVey. It also boasts probably the funniest foreword I have ever read by the uniquely talented Jeff Strand.

James Newman is quite literally the gentleman of horror. If you haven’t read any of his stuff then you are just plain stupid. Go fix that!

If you would like to help support Confessions of a Reviewer then please consider using the links below to buy any books from James. This not only supports him and me but also lets me know how many people actually like to buy books after reading my reviews.


James Newman is the author of a diverse selection of horror and suspense tales, dark fiction told with a distinct Southern voice and more often than not with a hint of pitch-black humor. His published novels include MIDNIGHT RAIN, THE WICKED, ANIMOSITY, and UGLY AS SIN. When he's not writing, he enjoys watching horror movies (and showing off what he knows about the genre with the recent release of his first NONfiction book: 666 HAIR-RAISING HORROR MOVIE TRIVIA QUESTIONS), listening to loud rock n' roll, and even dabbling in some stage-acting every now and then.

In real life, James lives in the mountains of North Carolina with his wife and their two sons. Online, he divides his time between Facebook and his website.
