Monsters Anonymous by Theresa Derwin – Published Today!

That’s right, get over to Anarchy Books for your “hot off the press” copy!!


Have you looked in the closet lately? Well beware, because some things are not meant to come out…

Monsters Anonymous, a support group that lets the monsters out from behind the closet door. A place where creatures from nightmare meet up, share their experiences, and talk about their addictions… Because addiction is what monsters suffer; whether it’s the vampire addicted to blood, the cannibal or were addicted to meat, or the mummy addicted to life essence – these monsters are misunderstood, and want to share their stories.

From the streets of Victorian London, the jungles of deepest Mexico, the ancient city of Thebes or the sex-shop backstreets of Birmingham, monsters get into all sorts of places… and all sorts of devices. Wild chases, raw meat, unorthodox sex toys and the Holy Grail, Monsters Anonymous will make you laugh, weep, and maybe even scream.

“A gruesome short story collection, with its severed tongue stuffed firmly in its lacerated cheek…” – Richard Ford, Author of Kultus.

“With a heady mix of humour and gore, Derwin gives us a clever and unique take on the horror genre. Witty, bloody and pulling no punches, Monsters Anonymous is a cracking collection.” – Dave Jeffery (Necropolis Rising, Beatrice Beecham Series)

 “This is a fun and yet disturbing read that really does manage to freak you out in unusual ways. It is well worth a read.” – Tony Lane, Review at Tony’s Thoughts


About the Author

THERESA DERWIN has lived in Birmingham since birth, and her career has been pretty varied; from Warehouse Packer, then bar work, to being a crap waitress then swiftly into retail, Admin, Professional Student and dosser until finally entering the Civil Service in 1999. She left the Service in 2012 to pursue a career as a writer.

Theresa writes humorous fiction including SF, Urban Fantasy & Horror. She has eleven anthology acceptances behind her. She also writes a number of book reviews at her site www.terror-tree.co.uk

She has loved horror, fantasy and SF all her life, thanks to her father who raised her on 50s Sci-Fi Universal Monsters, tango and popcorn. Her love of the bizarre, (including her Dad) remains constant to this day. She also owes a great debt to Rog Peyton from the BSFG who introduced her to alternative fiction at the tender the age of 14.

Autumn of Indie at The Geek Syndicate…. with a bit of Anarchy Books thrown in….

The Autumn of Indie on the Geek Syndicate website start today! For this entire season of falling leaves, shorter days and colder weather we will be celebrating the wonderful world of all things Indie in all the mediums we can get our grubby mitts on.

What is Autumn of Indie?

Geek Syndicate are big fans and supporters of all things indie from the worlds of gaming, films, books,audio and especially comics. However one of the problems is that there is so much great indie content out there that a lot of it is being missed. Here at Geek Syndicate we wanted to try to play a small part in getting  the word out about what’s happening in the indie and thus ‘The Summer of Indie’ was born.

In 2012 indie scene has exploded even further with self published novels now topping the Amazon charts, indie projects being crowd funded on sites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We have always been big supporters of the indie scene  so we thought we would bring you another special focus on the indie scene but this time over the Autumn months. Of course being the highly creative folk we are here at Geek Syndicate we wracked our brains to come up with  a name and finally after months  of soul-searching we came up with ‘Autumn of Indie’ (ok maybe there was slightly less soul-searching than implied).
