THE MONSTER MAN OF HORROR HOUSE
Published December 2011
Plot: John Coal is the town oddball. Old, crotchet and solitary, he lives in a scary old house that is almost as rundown as he and sees out his days shuffling around the streets harvesting his neighbours' skips for scrap.
The local kids take great delight in plaguing him morning, noon and night but they've chosen the wrong old coot to mess with because John Coal is no ordinary man. He knows where the bodies are buried. He's been to the outer limits. He is a keeper of dark secrets. Murder, monsters, demons and bi-polar vampires, he has seen them all and lived to tell the tale.
Now, if he is to rid himself of his woes he must dig into the deepest recesses of his past and use these terrible experiences to convince his tormentors he's not just an old man to be pushed around.
He is John Coal – the Monster Man of Horror House.
