"Stories so good that they fall into the category of 'I'm going to steal this as soon as I get my time-machine working.'" - Michael Carroll (New Heroes, Judge Dredd, Jennifer Blood)
"If it's not hilarious, it's disturbing, and if it's not disturbing, it's thought provoking- and if it's not that... it's not David Court." - Elizabeth Earle (The Adventures of Benedict and Blackwell, Tartarus)
David Court is a short story author and novelist, whose works have appeared in over a dozen venues including Tales to Terrify, Strangely Funny, Fears Accomplice and The Voices Within. Whilst primarily a horror writer, he also writes science fiction, poetry and satire.
His writing style has been described as "Darkly cynical" and “Quirky and highly readable” and David can't bring himself to disagree with either of those statements.
Growing up in the UK in the eighties, David's earliest influences were the books of Stephen King and Clive Barker, and the films of John Carpenter and George Romero. The first wave of Video Nasties may also have had a profound effect on his psyche.
As well as being a proud VIP writer for Stitched Smile Publications, David works as a Software Developer and lives in Coventry with his wife, three cats and an ever-growing beard. David's wife once asked him if he'd write about how great she was. David replied that he would, because he specialized in short fiction. Despite that, they are still married.
