When you leave the paths of light, you fall and you fall forever.

A man finds a woman crouched over the body of her murdered father. The man is hallucinating on a liquid drug called violet, and offers it as a promise of escape. The woman, numb with shock and grief, takes it and soon finds herself in a ‘beautiful nightmare’, the shadowy world of the violet dark. They ride the endless roads on motorbikes, lost in the drug and almost lost to reality…
Terrible, grotesque things are hunting them. If only she could convince herself that the danger was all in her head…

– The Violet Dark is a short novella by the author of the twisted dystopian thriller Moral Zero. You don’t want to miss this hallucinogenic road horror. A toxic love song to darkness itself, this book is guaranteed to make you see things that aren’t there – or perhaps they are…

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,
