About the Author

Jack was born in Portsmouth, U.K. in 1989. One June day in 2021, the impulse to write a short story came to him suddenly after a particularly vivid nightmare. That first short story, The Cat's Meat Man, was published in a horror anthology several months later. More stories followed, and by the end of the summer, he had a total of ten short stories, one novelette, and three poems to his name which were subsequently published as a collection by Blood Rites Publishing in January 2022. That collection was Ripper Country.In the autumn of 2021, Jack self-published the short stories React and Driving in the Dark, both of which were met with largely positive reviews. His second collection of short stories, Dark Lines, was published in the spring of 2022 by DarkLit Press. Jack has also had stories featured in the horror anthologies, Dead of Night and Terror in the Trench, in addition to pieces of flash fiction appearing in the collections, Slice of Paradise and 206 Word Stories. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Jack Harding became one of my favourite authors recently after reading Ripper Country and then his free giveaway of Devil's Mountain earlier this year. The great thing I noticed is the stories are well written and don't waffle aimlessly, which I've noticed some new authors do to pad out the stories. This is a great follow up collection to Ripper Country but unlike Jack's first collection each story stands alone and don't interlink.

My personal favourite was Driving in the Dark, which struck a very personal chord with me. When my anxiety, depression and drinking were at their worst I often felt that I was living the same way as the character in this story was. I dint want to give spoilers but it chilled me how accurate Jack nailed the feeling I used to get, he got inside my head and also made me thankful I've managed to turn my life around.

Personal story and favourite out the way there are some absolute gems here. Devil's Mountain had its own release and I can tell why, its superb. Part isolation horror, ghost story and survivors guilt all packed into a creepy setting it left me with chills. Silent Treatment also hit me like a sack of bricks. Arguments are everyone who's been in a relationship worries about and Jack taps into the fear of having your last argument actually be your last. My father says never go to bed on a bad nite and this story solidifies that fact.

Now for the audio review. To start with I wasn't keen on the narrator, he felt over dramatic and I almost wanted to turn it off. However I had to remember these weren't Ripper Country stories and I needed to give him a chance, I'm glad I did. His delivery, accents and timigg really sold the horror and fear in these story's and while his drama could have rendered them cheesy they did anything but. It all gelled perfectly and made this one hell of an audiobook and a breeze to listen to.

4.8/5 for the book, 4.2 for the audio, just needed something a bit more obvious to desperate the stories
