Coming this November from Burning Effigy Press…
Felix Renn is a private investigator in a supernatural world, an alternate reality where a dark dimension called The Black Lands co-exists alongside our own. Travelling to and from The Black Lands is dangerous — and illegal — but that doesn’t stop some of the creatures that reside there from crossing over into our world from time to time.
In this collection of stories, Felix encounters a variety of terrifying entities, including ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and the dreaded Black-Eyed Kids.
In a world where paranormal has become the norm, each new case may be his last.

SuperNOIRtural Tales collects all of the Felix Renn stories published to date, as well as a brand-new 50,000-word novella, “The Brick.”
Featuring an introduction by Mike Carey, author of the Felix Castor novels and writer for the DC/Vertigo comic book series Lucifer, Hellblazer, and The Unwritten.
Praise for the Felix Renn Series:
“Wry and stylishly bizarre… Felix Renn has entered the weird and wild urban fantasy front; I hope he’s on the job for years to come.”
— Laird Barron, author of The Croning and Occultation
“…an evocation of the classic, hardboiled detective that skirts the edge of parody without ever falling into it.”
— John Langan, author of House of Windows
“…a fast-paced entertaining story that gleefully mashes up all-things-supernatural with his hardboiled PI.”
— Paul Tremblay, author of Swallowing a Donkey’s Eye
“…there’s a lot of shading to Renn — the humour, the regrets, the resourcefulness… the chilly isolation of the human soul is felt throughout… Truly, this is one of the most chilling horror stories I’ve read in years. Make that, that I’ve read period.”
— Jeffrey Thomas, author of Punktown
“[Rogers] understands the rat-a-tat-tat language of the best noir, and uses it to explore the interpersonal relationships of his characters… Felix Renn has a lot of life in him, and a lot of distance to travel.”
— Simon Strantzas, author of Nightingale Songs
