I'm introducing my good friend J.G.Clay to you tonight. He's a relatively new author, at least to me, but none the less very awesome, with enough dark tales in his twisted head to scare even the darkest of minds.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting him at a book signing (Second City Signing in Birmingham) and I was lucky enough to have my table facing his. The day was, of course an absolute blast, with the readers and bloggers making it an event to remember, but that's for another blog post next week. However, it was down to J.G.

Beyond the page and the written word, he is music mad and can hold down a tune on a bass guitar pretty well. He is an avid reader and also has an enduring love of British sci-fi, from the pages of the '2000A.D' comic to the televised wanderings of Gallifrey's most famous physician. Clay is also a long-time fan of the mighty Birmingham City Football Club and endures a lot of flak from his
