"Jonathan L. Howard has such an effortless way with monsters and the undead that you might suspect him of being, like his creation, Johannes Cabal, a necromancer. The series is addictive." —Richard Kadrey, author of the Sandman Slim series

Horst Cabal has risen from the dead. Again. Horst, the most affable vampire one is ever likely to meet, is resurrected by an occult conspiracy that wants him as a general in a monstrous army. Their plan: to create a country of horrors, a supernatural homeland. As Horst sees the lengths to which they are prepared to go and the evil they cultivate, he realizes that he cannot fight them alone. What he really needs on his side is a sarcastic, amoral, heavily armed necromancer.

As luck would have it, this exactly describes his brother.

Join the brothers Cabal as they fearlessly lie quietly in bed, fight dreadful monsters from beyond reality, make soup, feel slightly sorry for zombies, banter lightly with secret societies that wish to destroy them, and—in passing—set out to save the world.*

*The author wishes to point out that there are no zebras this time, so don’t get your hopes up on that count. There is, however, a werebadger, if that’s something that’s been missing from your life.

Praise for The Brothers Cabal

Praise for Jonathan L. Howard and the Johannes Cabal Series

"Howard is a supremely talented writer and the Johannes Cabal series makes for superb reading. It would be easy at this point to say if you like Rankin or Fforde or Pratchett or Holt, then you will love these books, but while it may well be true it would be doing Howard a disservice." —Sci-Fi-London

"Howard makes it look easy to paint a soul-stealing murdering necromancer as a sympathetic character; that, folks, is worth the price of admission." —San Diego Union-Tribune

"Cabal, the detective and necromancer, is full of charismatic amorality, making him both a classical and refreshing antihero." —Time Out Chicago

"Howard’s ear for witty banter and his skill at rendering black comedy bode well for the future." —Publishers Weekly

"Johannes Cabal would kill me for saying this, but he’s my favorite Zeppelin-hopping detective. The fellow has got all the charm of Bond and the smarts of Holmes—without the pesky morality." —Daniel H. Wilson, author of Robopocalypse

"Howard’s characters, relentless imagination, twisting plotlines, and use of language make the Johannes Cabal series a real pleasure to read." —Richard Kadrey, author of the Sandman Slim novels

Praise for The Brothers Cabal

"In this volume, Jonathan L. Howard has given us everything we want in a gripping yarn: a vampire with a keen dress sense, an intrepid flying circus, a multi-species conglomerate of evil-doers, and, of course, a snide, misanthropic necromancer. But even as they're battling werebadgers and interdimensional evil, the brothers Cabal prove themselves the kinds of characters that stay in your heart for a long, long time." —Wendy N. Wagner, author of Skinwalkers
