Praise for “The World House”
"Playful, intriguing and a barrel of laughs, The World House is a quirky, tumbling box of delights full of adorable eccentrics on a wild, wild ride. It really knocked me in the lobes! Great fun!"
- Stephen Volk
“a fearless grand adventure of escalating escapades and escapes so hair-raising that his deranged imagination is barely able to contain them all... it’s a fearless, hurtling hell of a debut.”
- Christopher Fowler
Praise for Guy Adams:
“a superb stand-alone novel, that uses the tried and tested premise of the haunted house to scare the fertiliser out of us.”
- Bookstove, reviewing Torchwood: The House that Jack Built
“highly acclaimed companion”
- Total Scifi Online, reviewing Life On Mars: The Official Companion
In a varied career, Guy trained and worked as an actor for twelve years before becoming a full-time writer. He mugged someone on Emmerdale, performed a dance routine as Hitler and spent eighteen months touring his own comedy material around clubs and theatres. He is the author of the best-selling Rules of Modern Policing: 1973 Edition, a spoof police manual “written by” DCI Gene Hunt of Life On Mars. He’s has also written a two-volume series companion to that; a Torchwood novel, The House That Jack Built; and The Case Notes of Sherlock Holmes, a fictional facsimile of a scrapbook kept by Doctor John Watson. He’s also the current chairman of the British Fantasy Society.
