As the days towards 11.11.11 tick away, Joseph becomes convinced that something evil comes his way.

We’ve drawn the winners for our Black Mile competition – the first fifteen names out of the (virtual) sack have been notified. We’ve been blown away by the amount of entries – easily the most we have ever had. The success of the contest means we’re going to run another – and, since originality is not a strong point of ours, it’s going to offer the exact same prizes as the last one.
The winner will receive an overnight stay in The Soho Hotel, a funky hang-out slap bang in the middle of Soho (which is the setting for the novel). Runners-up will receive signed copies of the artwork for the novel (by the artist responsible for some of Bret Easton Ellis' UK covers), together with signed copies of Mark's previous novels.

Runners-up will receive signed copies of the artwork for the novel (by the artist responsible for some of Bret Easton Ellis' UK covers), together with signed copies of Mark's previous novels.
The novel is available at the introductory price of 99p and you can get a copy here.

Starring Ryan McCoy, Brett Rosenberg, Abigail Richie, Ashley Bracken and directed by Howie Askins, Evidence is a bone chilling ‘found footage’ delight. Once the horrors begin they do not stop dragging the audience on a scare-a-second ride that ends with a shocking twist.
It has some rather impressive reviews for a low-budget schlocker, and takes the Paranormal Activity template, messes with its head, and presents something different and thoroughly unpleasant.

Revolver Entertainment and Oscar-nominee Jane Campion (The Piano, Bright Star) present Julia Leigh’s Sleeping Beauty, a haunting portrait of young university student, Lucy, drawn into a mysterious hidden world of beauty and desire, available on DVD and Blu-Ray on 27th February and you can read Dino’s five star review of the film here. Official Selection of 2011 Cannes Film Festival, contemporary novelist and first time director, Leigh, blew audiences away with this original and mesmeric tale, witnessing Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, The Uninvited) in a breathtaking performance described by Campion as “flawless” and “career breaking” by Time Out.
Death-haunted, quietly reckless, Lucy is a young university student who takes a job as a Sleeping Beauty. In the Sleeping Beauty Chamber old men seek an erotic experience that requires Lucy’s absolute submission. This unsettling task starts to bleed into Lucy’s daily life and she develops an increasing need to know what happens to her when she is asleep.

The other part of the mercenaries’ top-secret mission is to capture Cracovic and bring him back with them so he can face justice at the International Criminal Court.
