Born in Worcester in 1971, Charlie Williams has written seven novels that have been published in five languages. Most belong in the crime category but there is often overlap with horror, sf and just plain weird, with no real game-plan to fit into any genre at all. The Mangel series (DEADFOLK, BOOZE AND BURN*, KING OF THE ROAD, ONE DEAD HEN and MADE OF STONE) are all narrated by Royston Blake, head doorman at the premier nightclub in a hellish small town. Each was written so it stands alone and can be read independently of the others. The Guardian said of them "this is gloriously funny stuff and so original that other writers must be gnashing their teeth in jealousy". STAIRWAY TO HELL is about a pub singer who finds out his body hosts the transmigrated soul of David Bowie, courtesy of some 70s voodoo by Jimmy Page. Although fiction, the story was based around true events. Go to charliewilliams.net and check the Stairway to Hell page for more on that. Other works include GRAVEN IMAGE (a novella about a brothel bouncer with a debt to pay) and YOUR PLACE IS IN THE SHADOWS (a collection of six short stories). All of these books have received great reviews, some of which you can read here on Amazon. But steer clear if you hate swearing or love political correctness. * original UK title: FAGS AND LAGERRead more Read less
