DR MARTIN SIMPSON talks about his novel BRAINS

Here's a promo to whet your appetite for the book.

Famous Writer, David Burke, comments

BRAINS is now available on Amazon. Click any of the ads on this site to order it now for Christmas. Scare someone you love.

See DR SIMPSON chat about the book in the great little video above. It's about 2 minutes long, and well worth a look.

David Burke, compiler of the recently-published WRITERS IN PARIS, and sometime Paris editor of the ACCESS guides, says, "Dr. Simpson's video is GREAT! Just the right tone, perfect balance of creepy and droll. Reminds me of a show they had on BBC prime, title forgotten, "Tales from the Crypt" sort of thing, with actors reading horror stories by Poe, Balzac, and others, the actors on camera most of the time with sinisterly lit, rather abstract scenes in the background. Those were really scary. Dr. S leans more toward the droll. It's an inspiration to me, actually."


This week, BookSurge has begun the file integration process of the book BRAINS. What this means in Plain English is: The novel, BRAINS, will be published in 21 days on AMAZON.COM. Look forward to your dose of murder, mayhem, and genetic manipulation Real Soon Now.

Syringe sucks shark brain fluid

Alex snatched his black case from where it was floating down the scuppers and tore it open. He could hear the shark struggling behind him, the cradle creaking and straining under its violent exertions. With every lurch and roll of the boat the instrument case sent its jumble of bottles and instruments clattering so he feared they’d smash. The wind whipped stinging spray into his eyes. Though he could hardly see, in his frantic search in the mess for the right syringe, he eventually came up with it. Turning to wipe the water from his vision with the back of his arm, out of the corner of his eye he saw the shark snarl. He wondered a moment at the immense vitality of an animal able to fight so long out of its element, with so many wounds and so little hope. Diving back into the bag, at last he found the spinal needle. With a twist he attached it to the syringe. So, he thought, this is finally it.
He discovered he had to get astride the animal to get the angle right, clinging to the cradle like a rodeo rider, and leaning over the great grey sandpaper head. Alex avoided the malevolent stare of that iridescent ink dark eye, and selected a spot just behind the skull where he hoped the atlanto-occipital joint would allow free entry to the midbrain. He took a deep breath and plunged the needle into the wet leathery surface. It slid beautifully in, but the shark jerked and thrashed, and he worked desperately to maintain correct depth as he sucked the hypothalamic fluid from its brain.

Cancer has been cured; right here at Radford

The discovery that sharks don't get cancer has led genetic scientist Alex Gray to a cure in humans - but is the cure worse than the disease? And how many deaths will the cover up cost?

Dr Martin Simpson has placed himself in the front rank of thriller writers with this frightening tale; closer to science fact than science fiction. A powerful hallucinatory cocktail of sex, dope and medical research, leading to jealousy, revenge, and murder, it ends with a twist.

Fast paced and explosive, 'Brains' is brilliant and unputdownable.
