New UK genre novelist Tim Wood, recently taken on by the John Jarrold Literary Agency, has now completed his horror trilogy. The first novel, Tepsech Drakul, is set in the present day and, in the author’s words: ‘reveals the true history and ecology of the vampire. Where they originated, their grand design, how they work and who they really are.’
The stories are centred around a legendary demon slayer, Finn Angmon, and draws on the legends of Fionn mac Cumaill. The novels pay tribute to the dark eroticism of Bram Stoker’s Count Dracula, whilst entering the world of science fiction, taking the narrative to Vasudha, the home planet of the vampire kind.
In the fourth novel of the Finn Angmon series, a Vasudha becomes a battleground when it is invaded by the Zilon, and humans must join forces with their enemy to save the planet.
John Jarrold said, ‘I have looked at Tim’s work over some time and with this series I feel he has really hit his stride. Vampires abound at the moment, but Tim has looked deep into their being, while telling a terrific, fast-moving story with thrills and characters who involve the reader. He has a great future.’
Currently, Tim leads a busy life as he is also information solutions director for Atkins management consultants.
