About Gordon Brewer

I’m the author of over 14 books, including the Clovel Sword Chronicles and Ray Irish Occult Mysteries. In addition, I created the horror comics Creepsi Twisted Tales and Strange Twisted Tales alongside two ongoing web comics, Battered Soul and Jealous Gods.

As a writer of Dark Fantasy, Supernatural Mystery, Sword & Sorcery stories, my tales come from an imagination inspired by reading fantastic stories of Robert Howard, Poe, Lovecraft, Raymond Chandler, and Dashiell Hammett. My goal is to help readers escape from the daily routine by immersing their conscious into tales of exhilarating, yet forbidding worlds with exciting, perhaps dangerous, characters who fight against monsters and gods. My books are available on multiple reseller websites, including Apple, Amazon, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble.

Creepsi Twisted Tales, Strange Twisted Tales can be read here. For those interested in comics, I also promote indie comic creators at Alternative Comics Mag substack site through a developing online magazine (below). Plus, I put out images and information about some of my comic book collection.
