About David Longhorn
David Longhorn was born in North East England long before the internet, but fortunately they had plenty of books in those days! He enjoyed reading all sorts of fact and fiction in childhood and also became a huge fan of old horror movies and the BBC’s Ghost Stories for Christmas on television, despite losing a lot of sleep as a result.
He went on to get a degree in English Studies, which somehow led him to a career in local government, which in turn took him into a recording studio where he provided voice-overs, read news, and did a lot of other audio stuff. It’s been that kind of life, really – a bit random but quite interesting. All the while he was reading and writing supernatural fiction, influenced by both the classic tales of writers like Ambrose Bierce, M.R. James, and Edgar Allan Poe, but also by modern masters such as Stephen King. He hopes to write a lot more about the world of the dead and undead, assuming they let him…

Titles By David Longhorn
Some memories are too painful to forget…
American History lecturer Paul Mahan was looking for a little peace and quiet. A place to recover from his personal demons, and pursue his academic career. But when he moves into the newly refurbished Rookwood Apartments, he soon finds himself trapped in a living nightmare.
A series of terrifying events forces Paul to question his sanity. Strange messages scrib-ble themselves across the walls. His beautiful neighbor seems to vanish without a trace. And a deadly accident tears away the veil from Rookwood’s dark past.
As these violent incidents escalate, residents call in a paranormal expert, hoping to end the strange accidents once and for all. But only Paul understands the chilling truth. The pain and torture of Rookwood’s blood-soaked past can no longer be contained…
And a terror beyond anything they have ever experienced is about to be unleashed.
Scare Street brings you some of the best short horror stories by authors Ron Ripley, David Longhorn, Eric Whittle, Sara Clancy and A. I. Nasser, all in one book. Together, these stories promise more than just a shiver down the spine and a fear of the dark, but the soft caress of terror that comes with the unknown and the unexpected.
Join us through the pages of the best of what Scare Street has to offer, and be sure to bring a night light along with you. You definitely don’t want to be left alone in the dark!
Mark's journey takes him to dark places, where he finds himself haunted by a ghost from his troubled childhood. But that's nothing compared to the terrors that await as he heads towards the Dark Isle, where the solution to an ancient mystery lies.
Something far more terrifying than any ghost is on his trail. Awakened after decades of hibernation, it is deadly, unstoppable and hungry.
Hungry for blood.
Some spirits never rest in peace…
Paul Mahan escaped the terrifying evil that dwelled in the Rookwood Apartments. But others have not been so lucky. Young Ella Cotter, an innocent child, finds herself tormented by a ghost Paul unwittingly freed when he escaped the building's haunted grounds.
As Paul attempts to use hypnosis to separate the child from the tortured entity that clings to her soul, blood runs in the streets. A series of mysterious killings rocks the nearby city of Tynecastle. And Paul is convinced the violent incidents are linked to Dr. Palmer, a sadistic wraith, who once turned Rookwood into an asylum of horrors.
Working with the local police, and a rare book dealer with an interest in the occult, Paul and his allies soon find themselves face to face with an enemy unlike anything they have ever imagined. This terrifying evil force grows more powerful with each victim it kills.
And the only way to stop it may cost Paul his mortal soul…
Some nightmares are too terrifying to forget…
Paul Mahan just wants to put everything behind him. The shadowy halls of Rookwood apartments, the building’s bloodstained past, and most of all, the chilling supernatural presence he encountered there…
But when Neve Cotter, a former Rookwood resident, reaches out to him for help, Paul finds himself unable to turn away. Neve’s daughter, Ella, has been possessed by a tortured spirit that Paul freed from Rookwood’s haunted grounds. Feeling responsible for the girl’s pain, he agrees to accompany a paranormal TV show into the abandoned building, hoping to find a cure for Ella’s curse.
As Paul leads the group into Rookwood’s labyrinth of shadows and illusions, he discovers that the dark, powerful presence that haunts his nightmares has returned. And it’s stronger than ever before. This malignant entity feeds off an ancient power, a darkness that has festered within the building’s walls for centuries.
Even the destruction of Rookwood may not be enough to end its reign of terror…
On the island of Skara Farne, the venomous ghost of Abbot Thomas Beauclerc is back and out for blood. Though Mark has moved to Cambridge, the nightmares have returned and his girlfriend, Sue, is concerned. Mark knows the war isn’t over; it’s just beginning!
Both officers, Jo Garland and Masson have their hands full with a slew of deadly assaults happening in the city. Each victim is missing a vital organ – eyes from one, kidney from another and the gruesome list goes on. Witnesses report seeing a grotesque monster who appears and disappears like mist. Jo wonders if the monster, now dubbed the Mutilator, is really the Follower – a formless, invisible member of the Abbot’s unholy killing machine!
All Hallows’ Eve approaches and the bodies keep adding up. Mark, Sue, Jo and Masson race against time to stop the Abbot and his grisly henchmen. Mark soon learns he’s only one part of the Abbot’s plan. This time, the evil is more insidious and the Abbot is more aggressive. When Mark discovers what the last grisly piece of the puzzle is, he goes after the Abbot with a vengeance, never realizing that in destroying the Abbot, he could destroy himself.
When the body of a retired teacher is found in a sand grave on the beach, that is only the first of a strange string of deaths. Islanders and tourists are scared. Ghosts of Vikings and monks have been seen all over the island and Mark is fighting a losing battle against the Abbot who’s determined to possess Mark’s body.
As the bodies pile up, the Follower, a shifting shadow who does the Abbot’s killing becomes more active and no one is safe. With no choice but to stay and fight, Mark faces the grim unreality of the ghost realm only to learn that his death was planned centuries ago. Unless he can solve the mystery of the white tower, it’s only a matter of time before Mark joins the ghosts of Skara Farne!
