‘Transference’ by John Bowie
‘BRUTAL, DARK AND LYRICAL MANC NOIR’
As clubbers in the Hacienda club in Manchester partied hard in the 90s, a girl collapsed and fell from the stage after a bad pill.
Those that did, didn’t care – lost in a hedonistic haze.
John Black, an ex-S.A.S. serviceman, who was working security that night, carried her out in his arms.
Now on witness protection for exposing the city’s underworld after the girl’s death, he goes back to the city that disowned him – to confront the orchestrator of his pains…and reclaim his lost identity.
SHORT STORIES + ARTICLES:
A noir short on Paul D. Brazill’s Punk Noir Magazine.
Punk Noir Magazine is purportedly an online arts and entertainment magazine that looks at the world at its most askew, casting a bloodshot eye over films, music, television and more. There are interviews, reviews, news, poetry, fiction, micro fiction, and flash fiction. And some other stuff too, I’m sure. Indeed, a veritable cornucopia of carryings on.

MARTHA’S BULLET– Bristol Noir
THE TRAMPS’ LOCKER – Bristol Noir
TIGER MEAT (& The Kingdom of Blood) – Dead Man’s Tome (Bikers Vs the Undead)
A story by John Bowie featured in the Dead Mans Tome anthology: Bikers Vs The Undead.
‘In the jungles of Vietnam ‘Tiger Meat and The Kingdom of Blood’ is a dark-noir play with horror tropes and identity. Taking an alternative approach, it finishes where many stories of this type start, and shifts perspectives on who to fear most.’
