There is only one word to describe this dark dark work, and
that is Brutal. The horror, suffering and pain are immense and there is no let
up. Just as you think it can't get any worse it does and you end up thinking the
previous horrors weren't that bad. D G Jones paints a truly dystopian world with
fantastic aplomb, and with no fear of forcing the reader to regurgitate his
breakfast. The book builds to a superb crescendo that will have you curling your
toes. As a prequel to THE MACHINE it is excellent - and although there are a few
clues to its purpose, don't expect any answers.

If I really had to
stretch to two words to describe Persecution then it would be 'Brutal' and
'Awesome'

Another gorefest from the pen of one of the UK's finest
contemporary horror writers. Wormwood is the bastard child of Clive Barker and
HP Lovecraft and although it starts off as a melancholy stroll through one mans
sorrow at the loss of his brother at the hands of opportunistic murderers it
ends up being a fast paced chase through the dark underbelly of a
madman.

The main character is well developed and rounded,and the
narrative is cracking. An all round good read that will keep you page-turning
until the end.

Iain Banks rewrites the prisoner, 2 May 2012

By 

Seanus

This review is from: THE MACHINE (Kindle Edition)

Really, really good. Part horror, part science fiction, part
mystery, part romance, part allegory, I was genuinely truly sorry to come to
the end of the book. Mr Jones tells his stories with the same sort of ease and
flow demonstrated by professional dancers. This is the sort of book that makes
you think - several aspects of 7's life and thoughts made me look at myself and
question my approach to life. That it does this without being obvious or
laboured is the mark of a great book. Instead of Orwell I thought of Iain Banks
- I can't give much higher praise than that. True there are probably more
spelling mistakes than can be accounted for by the intelligent but functionally
illiterate narrator - but I find it very easy to forgive when I know I will
remember this book for such a long time.

This review is from: THE MACHINE (Kindle Edition)

This story is Orwellianesqe in its grim vision, whether this
is a prophesised future or an alternative world is unclear, yet the same
questions that are asked in our world are echoed in the world of THE MACHINE.
Alongside its graphic visions of humanity in all its gritty life and death
descriptions is a dark humour that survivors all share, especially survivors of
Argos. This book is a multi layered intelligent read,essentially a tragic love
story, great if you are lover of horror, mystery and suspense. I think Mr David
Glyn Jones is a talent worth discovering.

A truly original and authentic narrative that engages with
the dark side of existence. I would highly recommend this to other readers who
are interested in expanding their knowledge and understanding of life as we
don't know it.

This review is from: Strange
Erotica (Kindle Edition)

From ethereal and vengeful street workers to a new use
for expanding foam, this book has it all, I must warn its not for the faint of
heart, and it may make you think before you go curb crawling again. D.G.Jones
has outdone his earlier erotic novels with this one. 5 Stars!!

I have to be honest here, I really could not put the
book down it was amazing from the first page to the end just a shame there was
not more of it,.

It was a great combination of weird, and wonderful all wrapped up in such a
neat little package.



Will not spoil the read for the rest of you, but would recommend it to anyone (
not easily offended)

This review is from: Politically
Motivated (Kindle Edition)

Not dissimilar to Dave's other inventions, 'Politically
Motivated' is a collection of amusing, interesting, and somewhat bizarre
encounters, stories and anecdotes. It identifies and mocks the failings and
shortcomings of our political system using an ironically angry and satirical
writing style. It's also a bit weird, but had me chuckling!

This review is from: Politically Motivated (Kindle Edition)

Had me litteraly laughing out loud at 4am. Short stories
that are short enough to pic up and read whenever a few spare mins can be
found. The style makes it accecible for everyone. WSritten by a warped yet
genius mind. D.G.J I salut you. Carry on the good work.

This review is from: Dave
Malarkey (Kindle Edition)

'Dave Malarkey' is an exhilarating piece of modern
literature that serves to drag the reader from Poe-esque, esoteric romanticism,
to hideous, gut wrenching descriptions that rival some of the most classic
horrors of our time. 'Dave Malarkey' slithers off of your screen, wraps itself
around your optic nerve and bleeds into your frontal lobe as you descend deeper
into its mind-splitting world. Absolutely unmissable, and a good starting point
for those new to Dave Jones' work. You will not regret your purchase. Not for
fans of birdwatching, Cotton Traders or garden centres.

This review is from: Dave Malarkey (Kindle Edition)

These short stories are absolutely brilliant, funny and
bloodstained, transporting you to Mr D G Jones creative world and wrapping you
in his mythical thoughts, reading his work you will experience pleasure and
disgust but always given with a pinch of humour.

Praise to the author.

Looking forward to reading his other works.

Hope to see more;-D

This review is from: Lovecraft's

This book is a little like prostate massage, if your
sexually repressed and squeamish you probably shouldn't try it but if you're
not give it a go, you'll love it.

Just a little something to read when you're in the mood for
some sickness. Definitely not for the faint hearted,so be prepared to brace
yourself a little before you read it. All around amazing though.

an unexpected pleasure, 11 Mar 2012

By 

GSB

This review is from: Lovecraft's Chip Shop (Dave Nonsense)
(Kindle Edition)

Not usually my cup of tea I purchased this on recommendation
from a friend, and I'm glad I did. The irreverent humour and quick pace make
for a really relaxed, enjoyable way to spend a sunday morning, which is perhaps
strange given the subject matter. The characters are almost tangible, and their
descriptions evocative of wonderful B-movie villains from the 50s. The
scenarios whilst gory, are comically adressed, and a conversational lexis helps
the storys flow smoothly and returns reading for pleasure into reading as
pleasure. Buying them all very soon!!!!

from: Stephen
King's Trousers (Dave Nonsense) (Kindle Edition)

The second of the Dave Nonsense trilogy (containing
Lovecraft's Chipshop and Poes Replacement) this contains less of the horror and
disturbing stories.Unlike the revolting and unsettling material of the others
and the infamous Dave Malarkey, this instead is a cheeky homage to the world of
Stephen King where objects come alive and ghosts are rife, this installment
concentrates on the humourous side of D G Jones' writing. It shows there is
more than one string to this writers bow, and is a great introduction to his
work.

King's Trousers (Dave Nonsense) (Kindle Edition)

What
a great collection of strange, quirky and downright brilliantly written
stories. Dave Jones's work never fails to make me chuckle and feel slightly
queasy also. With a fantastic blend of the dark and light funny humour this is
a must read, way ahead of the field with his insight and very cheap for a
belting collection cheers Dave Jones.

Replacement (Dave Nonsense) (Kindle Edition)

There is something disturbingly addictive to your
writings... just when you think you can read no more you find yourself hooked
back in. Mr Jones, your writing style is captivating, at least.
Congratulations. I hope to see much more of your work in the future.

Ever
wondered why there is a European financial crisis, what caused it and what is
the prescription that will be the saviour of everyone? This book by D.G Jones
will help your brain forget all that has gone before and prepare it for a new
world that is being created at this very moment, silently waiting for new
thinking, new creations of thought and a new thought process that will blow
your socks off!!! Read this and be prepared to never think the same again as
this book is the door way into that new world!!!

I spent every minute I could reading this one, I have
all of D.G.Jones books thus far, and this one is a great read, you will never
look at the supernatural the same again. Every book just keeps getting better.

This review is from: The
Oddball Express (Kindle Edition)

A
high speed fusion of dark humour, disgusting ideas and the strangest ensemble
of characters ever gathered in one novel. D G Jones' Oddball Express is exactly
that, fast moving with the reader having little clue where its going next until
the ultimately satifying showdown conclusion on Trinity Bridge, D G Jones has
an unique style, a bizzare sense of humour and an obvious fondness for powerful
women.
