“Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law” now available!

What better way to celebrate Halloween than with the publication of a new Black Lands story!

Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

Jerry Baldwin sells haunted houses for a living.

A dangerous job—but in a world where paranormal has become the norm, someone has to do it. When the daughter of a former client ends up possessed by a supernatural entity, Jerry enlists his friend, private investigator Felix Renn, to help him perform an exorcism. Unfortunately, Jerry is a better salesman than he is an exorcist, and he soon finds himself in over his head, despite the best laid plans of monsters and men.

CZP makes damn fine-looking books and this one is no exception. Big thanks to my editor Sandra Kasturi, proofreader Klaudia Bednarczyk, and Vince Haig for the phenomenal cover art.

I also want to thank Ursula Kehoe, my former elementary school teacher who has become one of my best beta readers.

I should mention that “Possession” is not a full-length novel, but rather an eShort, clocking in at approximately 10,000 words. There are no plans at this time to produce a print version, so this is the only way to read the story until it pops up in my next Black Lands collection.

You can pick it up in the following formats:

If you order it today (October 31st) from ChiZine, you’ll get it for 50% off, which comes out to a whopping $2.00.

One final shout-out to those of you who continue to support my work, especially the Black Lands stories. It really means a lot to me. I shall reward you all with a Felix Renn novel someday soon. I promise.

“Temporary Monsters” now available as a FREE eBook!

If you’ve never read a Felix Renn story before, this is your chance.

To celebrate the forthcoming publication of SuperNOIRtural Tales, Burning Effigy Press has published the first Felix Renn novella, “Temporary Monsters,” as a free eBook!

I’m really excited about this, not just because it helps promote the collection, but also because it gives people who have never read a Felix Renn story before a free preview of the world of the Black Lands. Here’s a bit more about the story:

Temporary Monsters cover

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.

After a man goes berserk in a posh Toronto restaurant, Felix suddenly finds himself torn between both worlds as he is drawn into a deadly game of movies, murder and monsters.

The “Temporary Monsters” eBook can be downloaded at the following locations:

So if you enjoy “Temporary Monsters” and you’d like to take another trip to the Black Lands, then you should definitely pre-order SuperNOIRtural Tales.
