Spirit Houses inspired song by The Webb
So, it’s always the best part of writing anything when you get a good review for it, but the other day I not only received a wonderful email review from The Webb (a goth band I’m a big fan of since meeting them in Manchester – they are so lovely and friendly!) but they also informed me that Spirit Houses inspired them to write two songs which will appear on their second album. Never did I ever dream that I’d have an awesome band being inspired by my writing, this is just the coolest thing ever to happen!
So, here’s the review by Becki of The Webb (who gave me permission to post it here).
Come Die With MeDie Booth has served up a true feast here. In culinary terms, Spirit Houses has lashings of horror with stout flavour. There is a smattering of science fiction, a spicy blend of medical drama, a soupcon of romance, all infused with a rich, creamy filling of fantasy! The characters bear more than a dull list of ingredients as they ooze detailed description and each own perfectly inspired names. Lydia, Fix and Kite are among my personal favourites. This story is well researched, and imaginatively and powerfully constructed. The ending left me satisfactorily full, yet it was so mouth-wateringly good that I look forward to going back for seconds!The little ink drawings that accompany each chapter served as a delicious treat in between courses. Bon appetite!
The Webb are due to play The Leopard in Doncaster tomorrow (Saturday 26 October), so if you’re in the area, then get down for an early Halloween treat!
