    One thought on “The Nine Deaths of Dr Valentine”

    1. Gory and fun homage to the lurid and ridiculous violence of horror films of yore. Someone is murdering victims in the manner of deaths from Vincent Price films, and it's testament to Probert's creativity that this ludicrous premise never seems entirely implausible. Things are kept taut enough for there to be genuine menace amid the grins of recognition, and Probert knows just when to give us the bloody details, and when to withhold them and let the reader's imagination fill in the gruesome blank [...]

    2. Regular readers will be well aware of my love for Spectral Press, in the short time since its inception it has become one of the UK’s finest small Presses. From their excellent chapbook series that has showcased some of the brightest names in UK supernatural fiction, authors such as Gary McMahon, Alison Littlewood, Cate Gardner and Paul Finch, to their first novella by Gary Fry. Each and every one of these books has had not only the highest production values, they have also held within their p [...]

    3. We are in Bristol in the present day, but also in the world of Hammer House and horror ‘B’ movies of the 60s/70s for this novella by accomplished practitioner John Llewellyn Probert. A spate of bizarre and grisly murders hits the city, seemingly unrelated but surely too contrived to be coincidence. DI Longdon leads the investigations, aided by Sergeant Jenny Newham and pathologist Dr. Richard Patterson. The task at hand seems beyond their resources – the killer is smarter, better organized [...]

    4. It took me a while to take this book in the right context, but once I got my head around that it became a marvellous little read. The story itself clocks in at a little under 73 pages and is a loving tribute to the horror movies of yesteryear, particularly those of Vincent Price.When a series of bizarre murders start taking place in the city of Bristol, it soon becomes apparent that the mysterious killer is aping Vincent Price moving. It follows the police investigation, while at the same time g [...]

    5. magine a British police procedural with a dark, sinister undertone, and a villain who delights in staging devilishly macabre crimes. Like the bastard son of Hammer House of Horror and A Touch of Frost, with just a dash of Tales of the Unexpected thrown in for good measure, The Nine Deaths of Dr. Valentine is the latest from small publisher Spectral Press. Outlandish as it is engrossing, I’ve read it a couple of times now and I reckon it’s a perfect little gem of a story.Who should read this [...]

    6. I enjoyed this novel immensely, even given the fact that it's very light on plot. The premise is basically that someone is murdering people in the style of Vincent Price, or at least the characters he plays in various old horror movies. This is all well and good but does rather limit the plot, it being composed in the end of little more than a serious of vignettes of people being killed in gruesome ways. This was the stated aim of the novel though so I can't be too hard on him for that really.I [...]

    7. At one point of time, after being rather badly stung by Clive barker and (Heaven help me) Graham Masterton, I had decided to stay away from any horror that deals with sex & gore. Fortunately, JLP had compelled me to become more flexible in my reading, with his Hammer & Amicus anthology-films styled "Faculty of Terror" and "Catacombs of Horror". And now, he has again shown his loving admiration for those films with a visceral-yet-exquisite novella, which has been brought out by the Spectr [...]

    8. Do you fall under any of the following categories? Fan of Vincent Price, Roger Corman, THE FLY, THE TINGLER? Think THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES is one of the great horror films of all-time? Like your literature with a heavy dose of the cinematic? Want a fun read? If you find yourself answering yes to any of the above questions, then THE NINE DEATHS OF DR. VALENTINE is for you. It's a reimagining, a contemporarizing and a love letter to Vincent Price's MGM (and other) films of the late '50s to the ' [...]

    9. Someone has embarked upon a killing spree around Bristol, killing doctors with spectacular methods which, as the story progresses, it becomes obvious have been gleaned from Vincent Price films. Detective Inspector Longdon is in charge of the case, ably assisted by Sergeant Jenny Newham and pathologist Dr Richard Patterson and once they determine the pattern, it becomes a race against time to stop the body count increasing. As good as this book is - and it’s wonderfully written and plotted - I [...]

    10. The book had a great pace, a constant sinister feel, and amazing setting. It was a quick read.On the flip side, I felt the victims were more fleshed out that the main character and his side-kick. In fact all there was in way of character for her was a name and what she smoked. This may be a clever trick by the author to put the reader right in the scene, right in the victims shoes, and if so, it worked.As a reader I would have liked to see the detective make the antagonist uncomfortable by quest [...]

    11. My review of this excellent novella here, at my blogul-feeney/201 — with Simon Marshall-Jones and John Llewellyn Probert.

    12. I'm seriously beginning to believe that Probert is incapable of writing a bad story. I loved this novella. Not only was it well written, it also showed a genuine love for campy horror movies of the past, especially those of Vincent Price. A job well done!

    13. A fantastically fun read that I devoured quickly after it was released in eBook format by Spectral Press. My only real criticism would be that there wasn't enough of it! Will definitely look out for other stories by this author
