Hi, I’m C.J. Lines

CJ Lines with BRIDEAR

I wrote a book in 2007 called Filth Kiss and another in 2011 called Cold Mirrors. Both can probably still be found in charity shops all over the UK and online auction sites… I’ve also written and performed horror monologues for small audiences in very dark rooms. Sometimes they even bought tickets for this. I’ve had short stories appear in various collections, including the Stoker-award winning anthology Unspeakable Horror From The Shadows Of The Closet.

I write a pretty in-depth blog about ninjas in pop culture. It’s called Ninjas All The Way Down.

With more regularity, I’ve written about cult films in various places, from DVD booklets and Den of Geek to cult enthusiast sites like The Reprobate. I’ve talked on a bunch of podcasts, from Devil Times Five to Film Jive.

Mostly now I write about heavy metal for This Day In Metal.

Some cool people have said nice things about my books:

“Lines’ writing style grips readers from the very first page and absolutely seethes with morbid sexuality and intense, visceral gore.” – Rue Morgue Magazine on Filth Kiss

“Haunting and beautiful… An author at the height of his power.”
– Starburst Magazine on Cold Mirrors

“A master short story teller… How could someone think of such despicable acts? And what kind of sick mind must they have?”
– Clayton Littlewood (author of Dirty White Boy and Goodbye to Soho)
