Stale biscuits and flat soda await. Take your place at Nana’s table, but watch your manners!
What others are saying about my debut short story collection, ‘Face The Music’ :
Mark Towse is an exciting new discovery. His stories are hidden gems that glint in the darkness. His characters draw you into their worlds, making you care, then plunge you into the abyss, leaving only a memory of warmth. His work will linger in your mind long after the telling. His are heart-felt stories with an icy edge. Highly recommended.’

Wow, what a great collection of ideas and stories! I’m so happy I gave this one a chance.
And what a journey it is! I really appreciate his skill with twists and turns. Every time I think I’ve got it figured out, he flips the story. I loved it. He’s a very engaging storyteller. Some a few pages. Some longer short stories. All great. There honestly wasn’t a single story that I did not like.
Ticks all the boxes: intelligent and fresh writing, beautiful language, killer twists and most important real fear.
Horror lovers please buy this, there’s no way you’ll regret it! 💀
Reader comments: “Mark: You keep “stalling” to just the right degree, so when the payoff–with its unexpected details–comes, it is completely satisfying. Bravo! More.”
“Very well done. Excellent turn around at the end. Caught me with my mouth hanging open.”
“Nice twist. Worthy of Rod Serling or Alfred Hitchcock.”
