The start of a fantastic new series. Johannes Cabal has never pretended to be a hero of any kind. There is, after all, little heroic about robbing graves, stealing occult volumes, and being on nodding terms with demons. His purpose, however, is noble. His researches are all directed to raising the dead. Not as monstrosities but as people, just as they were when they lived: physically, mentally, and spiritually. For such a prize, some sacrifices are necessary. One such sacrifice was his own soul, but he now sees that was a mistake – it’s not just that he needs it for his research to have validity, but now he realises he needs it to be himself. Unfortunately, his soul now rests within the festering bureaucracy of Hell. Satan may be cruel and capricious but, most dangerously, he is bored. It is Cabal’s unhappy lot to provide him with amusement. In short, a wager: in return for his own soul, Cabal must gather one hundred others. Placed in control of a diabolical carnival – created to tempt to contentiousness, to blasphemy, argumentation and murder, but one may also win coconuts – and armed only with his intelligence, a very large handgun, and a total absence of whimsy, Cabal has one year. One year to beat the Devil at his own game. And isn’t that perhaps just a little heroic?

He is all but forgotten today, but in his time, British author GEORGE WILLIAM MACARTHUR REYNOLDS (1814 1879) was a veritable Victorian Stephen King whose penny dreadful serials were more widely read than the works of Dickens, and shocked delighted readers with their lurid tales of murder, intrigue, and supernatural doings.This horrible tale, first published in 1851 2, opens in the year 1510 in an actual Gothic hall, where a young lady of exquisite beauty has been terribly affrighted. From there flows a tale so fiendishly wicked at least to 19th-century sensibilities that even a King may find himself haunted... Fans of horror and students of the history of pulp fiction will be enthralled by this little-remembered novel, which Cosimo is proud to present here in a charming replica of an 1857 edition, complete with the original illustrations.

Occult societies, murder, brothels, London, and a young debauched Victorian on the loose… From New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Douglas Clegg comes "...a cross between the Marquis de Sade and Charles Dickens...Scintillatingly brilliant."* "Readers will find themselves enthralled by the early life and lessons of young Justin Gravesend...There is a richness to the prose in this book reminiscent of 'The Confessions of an Opium Eater' penned so long ago. Side by side, they might have been written by contemporaries, and that is the magic of Clegg's prose in this volume." -- FeoAmante.com Reviews. A short and very disturbing novel (or novella), 140 pages in print. "...A terrific prequel to the Harrow House novels as readers obtain an intriguing look at Gravesend through his late nineteenth century journal and a scholarly introduction to Necromancy...Together these segments give this strong 'coming of age' horror tale a deep Victorian Era feel. Fans of the series will treasure this brilliant work, while newcomers will go chasing after the rest of the series." -- The Best Reviews. *"...Like reading a cross between the Marquis DeSade and Charles Dickens.. [Clegg's] prose is scintillatingly brilliant in parts and I was sucked right into this squalid tale of black magic. ...the book is worth this little gem of horror literature..." - Alternative Reality Webzine. "Justin Gravesend's story is one of perversity and debauchery and his embracing of it. Clegg does not back away from the more unsavory elements, yet keeps the language of the time (presumably the late 1800s), so that sometimes it felt as if I were reading something from Boccaccio or the like. 'The Necromancer' is never anything less than compelling, and I finished this relatively short tale in two sittings." - Craig's Book Club Reviews. The man who created Harrow had a secret history. In The Necromancer, Douglas Clegg explores the story of Justin Gravesend's youth and his induction into the organization known as the Chymera Magick. From a Welsh village to the back alleys of London, university student Justin meets his destiny in the underworld known as The Pandemonium.

"Douglas Clegg has become the new star in horror fiction." -- Peter Straub author of Lost Boy, Lost Girl and the New York Times Bestseller Black House (with Stephen King) "Clegg's stories can chill the spine so effectively that the reader should keep paramedics on standby." -- Dean Koontz "Clegg is one of the best!" -- Richard Laymon "Douglas Clegg is a weaver of nightmares!" -- Robert R.

They have been up to every challenge thus far, but when Simon agrees to help a besieged duchess they will face a Necromancer for the first time, a Necromancer supporting a neighboring duke's army with the undead he controls.

Exiled from her birthright as a child, Brianna's only crime was to be born a necromancer in a world that mandates their execution. Rather than have his only child executed, her father, the King of Belmontis, entrusts his closest friend with her care and sends her away before claiming her death from illness. Twenty years later, her father has been assassinated by her cousin, who now holds the throne, while Brianna is living anonymously in the Warrens of Mountainvale, the city's worst, most dangerous slums. Though she is unaware of the gathering threat beyond the borders of the country she might have ruled, a foreign necromancer is gathering his army to invade, starting with the city she now calls home. Having already taken a neighboring nation in just weeks, they have set their sights on wealthy Belmontis and only another necromancer can stop them. When Garrett Morvan, Mountainvale's city commander, receives a royal command to arrest the necromancer hiding in his city and hold her until the King's representative can arrive, he's shocked to think such a foul creature might be lurking in his city. Only when his men finally bring her in, she's nothing like he imagined a necromancer would be. Instead of the mad hag he expected, she's young, beautiful, sarcastic and determined to escape his custody, one way or another.... A romantic fantasy from the author of the "Our Lady of Joy" series.

Forgiveness is not Gabriel D’Ange’s strong suit. A self-appointed soldier of God with a penchant for ruthlessly punishing his enemies, he vanished after Anne Lawrence stabbed him with his own dagger. The smart thing would be to let him go. Unfortunately, Anne’s life isn’t just lonely without Gabriel. It’s insufferably boring. Determined to heal the rift between them, Anne goes in search of her tempestuous former lover, black parasol in hand and daeva magic crackling at her fingertips. But Gabriel has his own plans afoot and she finds herself drawn into one of his tangled webs, much against her better judgment. Gabriel’s nemesis has reappeared in Brussels, a vile slaver who’s plundering the Congo Free State with the blessing of King Leopold. Gabriel might be willing to give Anne a second chance, but not until Jorin Bekker’s head is lying at his feet. Back in London, the quasi-reformed necromancer Balthazar sets his sights on the same quarry. He holds a very personal grudge against Bekker — and killing him might be the only way to keep Gabriel D’Ange from Balthazar’s own throat. When the hunters collide at a lavish gala thrown by the king, Anne’s darkest secret comes to light and she learns just how far she’ll go to save the man she loves.

The continuing chronicles of the Second Neoluzian War. In "The Oath of the Necromancer," the tide of war rises against the good races of Neoluzia by the marauding armies of the Orcs from the north. The Orcs are led by Arkan Spiritstrike, a powerful Orc wizard who drives his forces to fulfill an Orc destiny designed over one thousand years ago. After the Veiled Institution restores Darius, David Parr is given the opportunity to return home to Earth, a place the Veiled Institution has declared a "forbidden world." Before he leaves, Parr is taken from his elven hosts by a disciple of the Veiled Institution so that he can be shown the true security danger in Neoluzia. Armed with this new information, Parr reluctantly decides to remain in Neoluzia so that he can find the great necromancer Termaplix, the last remaining hope for the salvation of the land. With his dark elven companions and a feisty dwarven paladin, David seeks to deliver this message tasked by Darius to the Salon of Enlightenment. Unknown to Parr however, the Orcs have planned to prevent his valiant party from leaving the elven forest of Frontentia alive and the stranger from Earth finds that he cannot escape The Second Neoluzian War.

“You think you got away with something, don’t you? But your time has run out. We know where you are. And we are coming.” Andrew Ranulf Blankenship is a stylish nonconformist with wry wit, a classic Mustang, and a massive library. He’s also a recovering alcoholic and a practicing warlock. His house is a maze of sorcerous booby traps and escape tunnels, as yours might be if you were sitting on a treasury of Russian magic stolen from the Soviet Union thirty years ago. Andrew has long known that magic is a brutal game requiring blood sacrifice and a willingness to confront death, but years of peace and comfort have left him more concerned with maintaining false youth than with seeing to his own defense. Now a monster straight from the pages of Russian folklore is coming for him, and frost and death are coming with her.

In a Massachusetts town, an evil wizard is about to come back from the dead and a young hero must fight to stop him . . . In the days of the Salem witch trials, the sleepy hamlet of Duston Heights had just one practitioner of the dark arts: the notorious necromancer Esdrias Blackleach. As the fever for witch hunting reached its terrible peak, Blackleach was accused of using powerful black magic against his fellow townsfolk. But just before he could be brought to trial, he dropped dead, escaping justice forever. Or so it seemed . . . Fast forward to the 1950s, the inquisitive young sleuth Johnny Dixon and his mentor Professor Childermass are getting ready to donate a box of Blackleach artifacts to the local museum when a descendant of the sorcerer shows up and attempts to steal his ancestor’s wooden hand. He has a fiendish plan to raise the old necromancer from the dead, and only Johnny and the professor can stop him and make the town safe from black magic forever. The Johnny Dixon stories, from the award-winning author of The House with a Clock in Its Walls, have been acclaimed for their “believable and likable characters” (The New York Times) and “spine-tingling” supernatural adventure (Publishers Weekly).
