"I have slight OCD (well, I think it's slight, though others might disagree!) and I was giving way too much to that side of myself in the 90s. I wasn't quite at Howard Hughes levels, but I could see myself going more and more that way."

That quote comes from an interview with me on the Kelly Smith Reviews site. Kelly was one of the reviewers that I sent An Other Place -- my latest book for...

The December issue of the Shanville Monthly is now online. It focuses largely on the release of An Other Place, of course, my most recent book for adults, released under the name of Darren Dash, which officially goes on sale TODAY -- you can learn a bit more about that below -- but it also rounds up all the other recent Darren Shan news and updates, and includes a Christmas competition as...

A Norwegian fan called Tyra wrote to me recently, asking if I would answer some questions about an article she was writing concerning truth in fiction. It sounded interesting, so I agreed to take part. You can see the finished article here: [ Ubok.no Link ]

You can use Google Translates to get a fairly accurate translation of the whole article, but for those who don't speak Norwegian, here...

Surprise!! I decided to release my new book for adults today, a couple of days before its official December 1st launch. An Other Place is on sale exclusively through Amazon stores worldwide, either as a paperback or ebook. It's a weird little story, about a man who winds up in probably the strangest city you're ever likely to come across... where time and space are fluid... where the moon...

A fan called Wendy had to write a song for an exam, and decided to appropriate different quotes from my books. You can listen to the song by clicking on the link below, and read more about its genesis and story by clicking on the Show More button on the page. That's Wendy on piano, by the way -- a friend of hers is singing. [ Youtube.com Link ]

This is a nice review of the first Zom-B book, by a woman who is scared of zombies, was dubious about the novel's exploration of racism, and who only bought the book for her boyfriend, but who ended up enjoying it despite her misgivings. [ Wordpress.com Link ]

In the run-up to Halloween, Mrs Shan and I took Dante to a local pumpkin patch. It was the first time we'd been to one, and it was surprisingly enjoyable. I know it's a bit late in the day, but here are a few photos. I particularly like Dante in his Count Dracula mode -- a new vampire prince is born!!!! :-)

We're all used to Best Of lists, but this one is intriguingly niche -- a list of the Top 6 First person Zombie Narratives!! i.e. zombie books, films or TV shows that are written or filmed in the first person! There are some great recommendations in there, and I was delighted to see Zom-B in among the mix -- indeed, it's one of only two books that make the cut. [ Euppublishingblog.com Link ]

If you're looking to buy some good YA horror books this Christmas, either for yourself or for someone else, you can find a list of spine-shivering recommendations over on the Ginger Nuts Of Horror's Festive 50 guide to buying YA horror fiction. I was very pleased to see one of my series listed among the recommendations. But which series was it, I hear you cry?!? To answer that, you'll have to...

I always enjoy sharing fan art with my followers, but this one's a double treat! First up there's the drawing of Bec by a fan called Misoko, which is cool in and of its own right. But Misoko also shared a sped up video of how she made the painting, so you can see how she created it -- the entire creative process captured in a handful of minutes. For someone with absolutely no artistic ability,...

A blast from the past! This is a link to an old interview that I gave back when the first Mr Crepsley book was released. (If anyone's wondering about the adult vampire book that I mention in it -- that's still no nearer its start point, though it's not an idea I've completely abandoned, so hopefully I'll get round to it one day...)

A couple of new reviews came in for An Other Place over the weekend. First up, Books, Films & Random Lunacy thought it was "a deliciously quirky novel that is surreal and powerful in equal measure. This is by far Dash’s best work to date. It is challenging and absurd, artistically brave and politically conscious, but this abstract painting of a novel is one thing above all else… completely...

The Halloween treats are still trickling in -- it's hard to keep up with everything in this fast-moving world, and sometimes I end up coming late to an internet party! The Scottish Book Trust flagged up their Authors Live recording of me to link in with Halloween this year. This was a live online event that I did a few years ago, which was broadcast to lots of schools in Scotland. You can...

If you're ever wandering along London's Southbank and the tide is out, you can mosey down the steps to the exposed sandy/stony area and try to find B Smith's footprints from when she dragged herself out of the Thames, having washed up there after being thrown off the top of the London Eye in one of the Zom-B books. Failing that, you might just bump into the Master Of YA Horror taking his son...

I heard my first Christmas song of 2016 on the radio this afternoon. A bit early for my liking, but at the same time, it was Shakin' Stevens, so I wasn't too put out!! For anyone who hasn't heard Shakey's Christmas classic from the 1980s (and I suspect it might be very much a British and Irish phenomenon) here it is on YouTube. And make sure you stick with the video, to catch sight of one of...

Writers seem to be getting younger all the time, and while I'm always wary of youthful authors who publish too early -- you normally have to put in at least ten years of hard graft before you're able to produce work of a truly high standard -- this young man from Hull has the advantage of being inspired by a Shantastic role model, so maybe he'll be one of the few who prove to be the exception...
