Maxim Jakubowski's view on Allan Guthrie...

If Guthrie had an American equivalent, it would be the incomparable James Ellroy. His world is dark, action-filled, rough and ready and his new novel SLAMMER is another walk on the wild side, as a young prison officer takes flak from all quarters and is obliged to assist a group of cons in a job that can only lead to more trouble. You can almost visualise the movie already.

If you like Allan Guthrie you might also like to read books by Malcolm Mackay, Peter Spiegelman and Ben Cheetham.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
