The Canadian author Keith C Blackmore is an extremely well regarded writer genre fiction, creating entertaining and engaging stories. Working in the horror and fantasy genres, he’s built a profile for himself that’s very accomplished, taking the readers on a journey through his imaginative worlds. His breadth of scope is huge, bringing in a wide variety of influences, making for a rich and rewarding experience that leaps off the page.

This also rings true for his characters, as they’re realistic and grounded, despite being set in all manner of otherworldly locations. The ideas he uses are also interesting, in that his premises are original and intriguing, taking his audience to places they otherwise wouldn’t have gone. Over the years he has developed his name, and this is something that will definitely continue for a long time to come.

Early and Personal Life:

Growing up with a love of literature, particularly genre fiction, Keith C Blackmore was constantly writing and reading from early on. This would vary through a number of different styles, including fantasy and horror, which is what he would settle upon later. Drawing from variety of different influences, he’d start to form his own voice, giving his work its own sense of unique style.

Learning his craft, he’d continue to expand upon his imagination and style, taking it continually forwards throughout his higher education. Not just horror and fantasy, he’d also show a love of science-fiction, delving into space operas and western novels. This would all combine in time, establishing him as the rich and varied writer that he currently is today, taking his work to a whole new level.

Now living in Newfoundland in Canada, he’s still writing, working on moving into new literary territory all time. Constantly searching for new ideas too, his stories continue to bring in readers, regardless of where they’re from. Developing as a writer all the time, he really is one to watch, as he’s really not stopping any time soon.

Writing Career:

The first book that Keith C Blackmore would release was called ‘The Troll Hunter’, which he published in 2010. This would be a stand-alone novel, although he would begin to write his ongoing series which would make him famous later on. He’d also produce a novella that same year with ‘Flight of the Cookie Dough Mansion’, which was for children, as he’d produce a number of short-story collections too.

Quickly gaining acclaim with his vivid descriptions, it was his adult genre fiction he’d become well known for though. Creating the ‘131 Days’ series in 2011, along with the ‘Mountain Man’ franchise the following year in 2014, he’d keep his readers coming back for more. With audiobooks being created from his work too, some of Blackmore’s novels have also been optioned for films, securing his status for a long time yet.

The Missing Boatman

First published in 2010 on the 19th of October, this would originally come out through the Eltanin Publishing label. Not a part of any overall series, this would be an entirely self-contained story, with one single overall arc to all of it. As a horror novel, it’s a straightforward concept, taking a basic premise and elevating it to a whole new level.

Told with a very dark sense of humor in many cases, this book does contain a lot of graphic violence and extremely vivid descriptions. Not for the faint hearted, it’s a well written horror novel with a humorous premise at the center of it all, as it really pushed the premise forwards. The world of the novel is well drawn, and it brings the action to the forefront, making sure not to leave anything out.

Miracles are happening every day all over the world, and typically people would consider this to be a good thing. Lately though, things have been changing, from a man surviving a horrific car crash in Quebec, to a homeless person being run over in New York by a bus and living, to a teenager surviving a suicide attempt in Tokyo after jumping off a high-rise building. All of these should’ve seen the individuals die, but it seems death has taken the week off, and this turns out to not be such a good thing. Will one man be able to find out what’s going? Can things be put right and back to normal? What has become of the missing boatman?

Well Fed

Published Blackmore himself, this would be the fourth book to come out in the ongoing ‘Mountain Man’ series of novels. Initially published in 2014 on the 20th of November, this would continue on from the previous books, with the next story in the saga. Following the survivors of a zombie apocalypse, it charts the life of Augustus Berry as he attempts to survive this dangerous new world.

Working as another horror story, it really manages to evoke a sense of unease, which it builds continually throughout. Having fun with its subject matter too, it sets about entertaining the reader, really making the most of its zombie premise. That’s not to say there isn’t horror too, as it definitely doesn’t shy away from some of the nastier edges of the genre, as Gus is subjected to all manner of terrifying ordeals.

Living a peaceful life now on a communal farm, the zombie hordes feel a million miles away from Gus, with the epidemic happening beyond the walls. The undead aren’t bothering him as a whole any longer, with only the occasional disturbance to take care of, along with the farm to tend. That’s when he hears of some scavengers who’ve gone missing in the world beyond, as he agrees to help them and bring them to safety. During his search he discovers a new kind of monster, one that’s a predator of the most vicious kind, as it threatens everyone and everything in the land of the living. Will he be able to stop it in time and save himself in the process? Can he find the scavengers? What will happen when the undead are well fed?
