Sketch by Leonardo M Giron

This site is specifically for Richard Calder's e-books published by The House of Murky Depths. The range of titles will increase over the coming months as will the e-platforms. Current titles are only available on Kindle.

Richard Calder was born in 1956, in Whitechapel, London. In the mid seventies he read English Literature at the University of Sussex. After graduating he travelled extensively throughout South-East Asia and Australia and, upon returning to the UK, subsequently worked in bookselling, independent television and the American Embassy's press office. He became a full-time author in 1990 after moving from London to Nongkhai, Thailand, a border town overlooking Laos. In 1998 he moved to the Philippines, where he lived for some years in Baguio City. After returning to London, he currently resides in another 'East' — his native East End.

His novels include the 'Dead' trilogy (Dead Girls, Dead Boys, Dead Things), Cythera, Frenzetta, The Twist, Malignos, Impakto, Lord Soho, and Babylon (now available from Amazon on Kindle).

He is currently adapting his novel Dead Girls into a graphic novel, illustrated by Filipino artist Leonardo M Giron. The trade paperback will be available at Loncon in August 2014
