A Discovery of Witches | Maniac | You| September Roundup

September Roundup

My birthday month has been mega, hasn’t it? Lots of new stuff starting like A Discovery of Witches, Maniac, and American Horror Story: Apocolypse. And with more to come for October the lead up to Halloween is getting exciting. Although, I’m sad to report that there’s still no release date for Netflix’s Nightflyers by George R.R. Martin.

A Discovery of Witches

Sky One’s new drama, A Discovery of Witches, is full of witches and vampires and daemons. From the book of the same name (which I’ve also started reading), the series is the story of a witch, a book, and all those who want to get their hands on it. Unfortunately, it’s been hidden by a spell for a very long time. A Discovery of Witches is the first book in a trilogy so the Sky One series has a lot of scope for giving us future seasons. 

Future Man

A fun-filled, weird, sound bite filled dark comedy-drama – this is impossible, it’s a guy who works as a janitor playing a game that everyone thinks is impossible to win and then he does and the characters from the game turn up in his room at a somewhat awkward moment.

New KT Books Released

  • Stars
  • Moon

The second book, Moon, is the novella that began as a CryptTV/Inkshares entry, wanted to be a script and was currently entered in the ScreenCraft Horror Competition. Both books are now available for download on Amazon too.


Download STARS by KT McQueen for free. The first in the Noctisbellum Inc. series which begins my Monster Universe. And sample the first few chapters of Moon which is now available from most eBook sellers.

Stars, Moon

This was a damn good read. The set up seems like it will be a little cliched ghost story at first, but then it turns into something else entirely. The characters are well developed and I actually cared what happened to them. There’s some nice suspense and the tale builds the tension nicely and comes to a satisfying and horrifying conclusion. If you appreciate a quick read and a nice little twist, I highly recommend this introductory story to what is promising to be the start of an interesting new horror universe! I can’t recommend this enough. Buy it, enjoy it and bite your nails waiting for the next book in the series!
