About Tim Mendees
Tim Mendees is a rather odd chap. He's a horror writer from Macclesfield in the North-West of England that specialises in cosmic horror and weird fiction. A lifelong fan of classic weird tales, Tim set out to bring the pulp horror of yesteryear into the 21st Century and give it a distinctly British flavour. His work has been described as the love-child of H.P. Lovecraft and P.G. Wodehouse and is often peppered with a wry sense of humour that acts as a counterpoint to the unnerving, and often disturbing, narratives.
Tim is the author of over one hundred published short stories and novelettes, seven novellas, and two short story collections. He has also curated and edited several cosmic horror-themed anthologies.
When he is not arguing with the spellchecker, Tim is a goth DJ with a weekly radio show on The Feelgood Station, and the co-presenter of the Innsmouth Book Club Podcast & Strange Shadows: The Clark Ashton Smith Podcast. He currently lives in Brighton & Hove with his pet crab, Gerald, and an ever-increasing army of stuffed octopods.

Titles By Tim Mendees
Mythic tales, legends and lore are part of every human culture. From the quests of Greek myth, to China's Journey to the West, from India's Mahabharata to the Anglo-Saxon Beowulf, our histories resound with the clang of swords, and the struggle of heroes and heroines against dark forces and foul sorcery.
In the 20th century, Robert E Howard, among others, pioneered modern mythologies which have become known as Sword and Sorcery. This anthology continues that tradition, with eleven new sizzling S&S tales from the pens of the Innsmouth Writing Circle.
The yarns within feature a cast of lucky thieves, avenging barbarians, bold swordswomen, and temple plunderers, not to mention sorcerers, necromancers, priests and a range of horrors that would freeze the blood of all but the bravest warrior.
So don your chain mail shirt, hoist high your battle-axe, let loose a war cry, and join us in the days of High Adventure....

Join us as we offer up the finest of gifts to the Old Gods. Those deities of long ago from places beyond that crave the darkness, that hunger for crimson-soaked flesh and gore. In this buffet of bone and blood, we offer up stories of the unknown, of the deepest and darkest fears; stories that will feed the hungriest of the Old Gods.
Watch as a farmer tries to protect those he holds most dear, a military rescue that carries the highest price a man can pay, a small town learns to fight evil with evil, and a volunteer prepares for a journey beyond our stars. These and many more tales await you within...

IT CALLS FROM THE SEA is a delightfully creepy collection of horror tales that run the gamut from mildly thrilling to absolutely freaky and everything in between. Some stories were longer than others, but they’re all the perfect length for when you just want something quick, dirty, and spooky. Each tale is delightfully different from the others, but they all have the common thread of water creatures that tie them together.
If you’re a fan of horror, you’re not going to want to miss It Calls From The Sea!!! I can’t pick a favorite story from this anthology. Each was unique and packed a real punch.
Sea creatures from the abyss. Leviathans of rare intelligence. Monsters who will drag you into the deep. The variety in this book is amazing. Each story is well written and some of them are unforgettable and terrifying.
Now in Eighth Tower’s newest anthology, we see ten before unpublished Yog-Sothoth tales written by some of modern Weird Fiction’s best writers. From a tale of a man in a midlife crisis, to a brilliantly clever piece on a French revolutionary, we are overcome by this new Lovecraftian darkness, and in that darkness, we are invited to go deeper into the void. Come and see the collector of magical objects who finds something not expected and then meet the woman in mourning over the death of her twin who quickly discovers that her dead sister had some very occult hobbies. Visit two lovers in crisis haunted by the ghost of an ex-girlfriend or follow a team of paranormal researchers in 1970s Britain who get far, far more than they bargained for. Finally meet the other denizens of this Lovecraftian tome: a denizen of Massachusetts known by his moniker The Nameless One who is hellishly bent on bringing ultimate evil through to this reality. Then try the story of a rock band on the verge of something unexpected. Or if music with a Scottish sound is more your taste, read the tale of a bagpipe player who meets a beautiful creature from his dreams, only to found that dream is in fact a nightmare. And finally enjoy a retelling of the classic Sherlock Holmes tale where Count Dracula makes an appearance. In all these tales, our protagonists are confronted with the unimaginable reality of Yog-Sothoth and are thus driven mad, or worse. Join us in this new collection if you dare where we explore the terrifying and nihilistic, the absurdly and horribly humorous, and where again and again, our protagonists find that death might not be the worst thing waiting for us all.
Ferocious storms, winged beasts and falling angels are just some of the dark tales locked within these pages. Discover a world where carnage falls from the sky, and delve into the frenzy of a world gone mad as Heaven opens and all Hell breaks loose.

After each story follows a recipe for the dish featured therein, so you too can make the wonderful meal you just read about, albeit with a few changes to make it palatable for human consumption. This one of a kind cookbook and horror anthology is a must for any gourmand of gruesome horror or ghastly gastronaut.
Bedtime. The twilight of consciousness, the darkness that lies between reality and dreams. Here, on the threshold of slumber, we open the door to myriad dreamscapes, to other worlds and astral planes. A thousand doors to a thousand worlds... and the nightmares that hide within.
Open the door, cross the threshold, and dream the night away. But be careful, and remember:
When you open the door to a realm of nightmares… sometimes you let the nightmares in.
A schoolyard nightmare with a taste for children…
Faceless horrors that prowl the boundary between consciousness and slumber in search of prey…
Houses where dreams and nightmares come to life…
Imaginary friends who bleed into reality…
Old gods who weave webs of nightmares to reveal horrific truths…
A monstrous storyteller who’s just dying to tell a tale about you…
These are just a few of the bedtime stories written by—and for—monsters.
In these pages you’ll find an unforgettable collection of dreams unleashed upon reality and reality transformed into nightmares. Penned by award-winning authors, bestselling writers, and visionary nightmare-smiths, A MONSTER TOLD ME BEDTIME STORIES will remind you what it means to be afraid of the dark.
