Man Eating F*cks

David Owain Hughes

An average teenage girl and her father find themselves caught up in a brutal nightmare at their local recreational centre, when an age-old enemy comes stumbling out of the woods to crash a heavy-metal gig; a gig that has all the promises of being killer. This is one blood-soaked gig you won't want to miss!

Praise for Man-Eating F*cks from Ty Schwamberger (author of The Fields, Deep Dark Woods & The Death of a Horror Writer.)

"Man Eating F*cks is old school horror, but with a new, blood-soaked twist! David Owain Hughes effectively creates enjoyable and lethal characters in this tale that is sure to keep you up at night. This is the type of tale that you need to read with a light on…I'm serious. You better put your seatbelt on 'cause you're in for one helluva ride. Look out, Hughes might very well be headed to the major leagues after this twisted tale! Highly recommended!"

Whitewalls and Straitjackets

David Owain Hughes

Meet Crystal and Harry - sweethearts and lovers who work in the lower fringes of the entertainment business.

After brutally murdering three critics for poor reviews of their show, Crystal and Harry decide it best to skip town and head for the coast. Once there, they know that everything will turn out just fine - it will be their chance to start afresh.


A new beginning.


But, before they make their way to the seaside, Crystal insists that they visit her sister at Castell Hirwaun, a renowned psychiatric facility for the dangerously insane - because, after all, it is because of Crystal that her sibling sits rotting in the place.


At the beginning of their adventure, Harry discovers a book in the van's glove compartment - Whitewalls and Straitjackets - written by an unknown author who exhibits the most intimate knowledge of the deadly duo, along with the other nut jobs who lurk about the Rhonda Valleys in that most picturesque part of South Wales.


As lives and stories collide head-on, Crystal and Harry soon realize that escaping the Valleys won't be quite as easy as they's first assumed - especially so with another vicious serial killer hot on their heels….

Escapees and Fevered Minds

David Owain Hughes


Dear Reader, 


Prepare to step through the looking-glass... 


You are cordially invited to Crystal's and Harry's downfall. Their fate, along with a whole host of other characters you are soundly familiar with, will take place at my master's grandiose home located in Porthcawl, South Wales.

Along with this invite, I strongly recommend bringing waterproofs and galoshes, as things will get messy, not to mention sticky, as the deadly duo are led into my master's trap.


This is one trip they won't survive. 


Yours Sincerely,

The Rack & Cue

David Owain Hughes

A hellish storm forces an unwitting group of travelers to seek shelter from the road. After nearly giving themselves up for lost, each finds himself in front of the eerie pub called the Rack and Cue. The pub's owner, Porky, welcomes them in with tasty beer, delicious homemade meat pies, and the promise of good entertainment - a pool tournament. It's a winner-takes-all competition with a hefty cash prize. However, as each round wraps up, and each loser in turn mysteriously disappears down to the cellar, some of the guests become suspicious. One pair of truck drivers, Riggs and Iain, determine that their only hope is fighting their way out.
