Author of all things dark and weird. "I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited." - Sylvia Plath. "When you've fallen on the highway and you're lying in the rain, and they ask you how you're doing, of course you'll say you can't complain. If you're squeezed for information, that's when you've got to play it dumb: You just say you're out there waiting for the miracle, for the miracle to come." - Leonard Cohen

Salutations!

My name is Set Sytes. I am a writer. That’s all I can be. I can only survive on the good support of others, I can only exist with your permission.

For me writing isn’t a hobby, it is an exorcism. I have to pull out these threads within me or implode. 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.

Sometimes I even enjoy it!

In this blog I will be posting excerpts from work 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.

Yours,
