Welcome to Bibliophilia Templum,
Reviews and Resources for Daring Readers.  


At this time, Bibliophilia Templum is dedicated to books outside of the mainstream.  We will be looking at various levels and subgenres of horror and sci-fi / fantasy to begin, and adding some dark non-fiction and resources as we go.  So if you are looking for someone’s opinion on the latest Stephen King or James Patterson, you are in the wrong place.  If you are looking for something outside of your comfort zone, let’s talk…

Fun fact: books in the above photo, taken in the Templum Library, include the Hot Blood Series and the Rejected for Content Series.

I have discovered drabbles and I like it.

100 Word Horrors




Featured Author: Rob Shepherd

Before I list the official Rob Shepherd information, I would like to say that I personally find Rob’s writing to be eloquent and thought provoking.  His use of foreshadowing and emotion creates engrossing stories and his characters are engaging.  Rob is not a genre specific writer, but I find his horror fiction offerings to be valuable contributions to the genre.  And he’s a rather nice guy on Facebook, too.

Author of several books of varying genre from humorous novella Life With Boris Karloff to WW2 drama Sofiah, and from poetry title Stripped Unconsciousness to Horror such as The Caretaker and The Grays Anatomy. Rob has no genre specificity, instead he likes to write stories that appeal to himself and that simply spark inside his mind. The important thing is to enjoy writing, it doesn’t matter what you write so long as you enjoy the art of doing it. Rob shares his home with his Wife Michelle, son Daniel, grumpy and somewhat psycho but adorable cat Jinx and slightly unhinged and late in the queue for IQ; Ethel, the Sharpei cross.

“The saying goes that everybody has one good book in them, in that case I intend to flood the world with genius.

It doesn’t matter if you write 1 paragraph or 100 pages a day or in a week, the important thing is that you ‘write’.

The impossible is always possible, you just have to know how and where to imagine.”

Born in Basildon, Essex in 1978 Rob now resides in Thurrock, Essex.
