When Olly Ainsworth, his adopted sister Aisha, and their friend Scotch visit Chernobyl for what they think will be a quirky day trip, things quickly take a turn for the eldritch after the Obscene - an extra-terrestrial entity imprisoned beneath the irradiated plant - enslaves Olly and coerces the group into helping it escape.
Olly is forced to quickly learn how to control his impressive - and frightening - new abilities as he and his companions are hunted by the fearsome Colonel General Petrov across the parts of Chernobyl you aren’t likely to find on the guided tour.
Featuring alien tendrils, a demon fungus from space, a Russian paramilitary group set on enslaving it for their own nefarious ends, and three friends who end up caught in the middle whilst interrailing across Europe, The Obscene is a creepy Earth-based sci-fi novel with entertaining, diverse trio of main characters, a creepy antagonist and a splash of humour.

Born and raised in the West Midlands, I've been writing
all my life, usually about weird shit like space, aliens, dragons and robots, because real life is an unending and uncompromising hell-scape, and who wants to read about that?
THE OBSCENE is my first published novel, and I am currently working on my second. Stay tuned for updates!
In the real world, I'm a former journalist and copywriter, currently working as a marketing drone.
