My name is Set Sytes. I am a writer. That’s all I know how to be.

I write what I see, or rather what I don’t see. I try and give the world more, make the world more than it is. I am inspired by everything the world isn’t.

In this blog I will be posting excerpts from works old and new, and short stories, in genres horror and fantasy, dystopian and thriller. I also may post idle thoughts,observations short and lengthy, half-hearted essays and diatribes, interviews with other authors, and favourite quotations. And everything else. I hope you like it all.

I would welcome you to follow my shadow, and take a walk in the mouldy sunshine.




He nonetheless goes in innocence…

  1. Hello,

    One of our authors forwarded us How Not To Kill Yourself and we were impressed. Would you be interested in issuing it as a zine? Please get in touch and if you have other appropriate projects, please pitch them to us.


  2. Hey Set! I backed How Not To Kill Yourself on Kickstarter. I read it and totally loved it. I thnk it’s the best book I’ve ever read. about depression – and I have read a lot of them. So came here to check out your blog and discovered your fave quotes which are fantastic. Thanks for making my day.

    1. Hi Michelle! Sorry for the delayed reply, I’ve only just seen this. Thank you so much for backing it and your kind words. Really glad you love it! Means a lot to hear such things :)
