FANTASTIC REVIEW OF NIGHT LIGHT BY ANDREW DARLINGTON HERE​

"The Midnight Street Press, energetically curated by Trevor Denyer through various but always valuable incarnations, is the premier Indie publisher taking darkness through new spectrums of colour."

GREAT 5 STAR AMAZON REVIEWS FOR CRYSTAL GARDEN:

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. I was pleasantly surprised as the subject matter was unfamiliar, and, at first, unappealing to me. However, the vividness of Steve Newar's writing of the description of tripping was full of imagery, highlighting the heightened physical and mental awareness that apparently comes with taking LSD. The narrative cleverly shifts from reality, and one is not aware when the transition happened, and one is drawn into the kaleidoscope of experience . Characters are cleverly built, with humour and wit. The novel also draws on the ultimate futility of escape from a mundane world: a freedom rarely achieved. I would definitely recommend this book.

Yvonne Chamberlain


This is a brilliant book written in eloquent, upbeat language by a man who will emerge as the literary master of our time. This pageturner is a must read.

Peter Messiah


I didn't pick this up with any expectation but was surprised by an extremely enjoyable, thought-provoking journey through the hazy world of the California LSD generation.

CRYSTAL GARDEN by STEVE NUWAR

ANDREW HOOK says:

"I enjoyed this.

Crystal Garden is an entertaining insight into tripping, love, and the rise of a counter-culture in 60s' San Francisco. When Phil and his friends experiment with LSD they quickly become attuned to revolutions both personal and global, yet does the drug represent freedom or simply another form of control? Peppered with detail and interesting characterisation, Nuwar's tale works as both a semi-historical document and an authentic, intriguing story. Take a ride, it won't be a bad trip."

GARY COUZENS says:

"Steve Nuwar's short novel takes us back to 60s San Francisco as Phil and Janice find their places in the city at the time of mind-expanding explorations of LSD. But it soon turns out there's a dark side to the new freedom. Crystal Garden, reminiscent of Philip K. Dick's A Scanner Darkly, powerfully evokes a time and a place when people thought they could change the world."

This is the third Midnight Street anthology to include innovative writing from some of the best writers around. The stories and poems here delve into the dark recesses of the mind, investigate the horrors there and promise unforgettable characters and shocking revelations. From supernatural manifestations to psychological trauma and dark fantasies, the contents of this book are not for the faint-hearted and reward the seeker of the horrific and unexplained, that crawl between the cracks of the reality we know and the depthless void beyond.


In the tradition of Midnight Street magazine and Roadworks before it, this anthology and its predecessors light the way into worlds of darkness, where ghosts haunt highways and everything you thought you knew is subverted and your perceptions are altered beyond recognition.


Let the Night Light guide you along the Midnight Street...

"These stories scare, confuse, confound. We walk along the street at midnight when all else is silent and dreaming. Dripping in moonlight after showers. That street holds the coolness of rain, the bitter cold of frost, the quiet of graves. That street awaits us all. When we pass from this heated, maddening world we pass along the midnight street and sink beneath its stones into whatever lies beyond, or into nothing at all."

A great review from TERRY GRIMWOOD:

18 December 2017

OUTSTACK AND OTHER PLACES by Gary Couzens and published by Trevor Denyer and his marvellous Midnight Street Press...A magnificent collection, slipstream at its finest, moving, unflinching and compelling. These stories are peopled by the ordinary, those we know; good people, well-intentioned, selfless and selfish, beautiful, flawed and damaged. People brush up against the dark and strange so lightly that each encounter is the kiss of a spider web. Unsettling but often barely noticed until moments later when the truth dawns. The closing story is an emotion-wrenching masterpiece.
