Johannes Cabal Novels

Doctors are respected for saving lives, for pushing back the darkness, to giving us precious time that might otherwise be taken away by a premature death. It has long been an irritation to Johannes Cabal that this respect is not extended to his own calling as a necromancer. After all, doctors can only delay death. Necromancers can reverse it. But no, just because a few bad apples raise armies of zombies, the public have taken against necromancy and its practitioners with harsh words, torches, pitchforks, and lynchings. It all seems very unfair. Johannes Cabal, a necromancer of some little infamy, contends with angry mobs, demons, the undead, and rival necromancers as occupational hazards. On a bad day, he may have to put up with politics. All he wants is to be left alone to find a perfect cure for death. Is that so much to ask?

"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

"The Brothers Cabal is smart, funny, and dark in all the right places. Imagine Mycroft and Sherlock -- if one were a polite vampire and the other were a surly necromancer -- up against an army of monsters and magicians. Like Pratchett and Fforde, Jonathan L. Howard puts it all together and makes it look effortless."—Christopher Farnsworth, author of Blood Oath

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.

A Darkly Gripping Comic Fantasy

Beyond the wall of sleep lies the Dreamlands, a world formed by dreams, but not a dream itself. For countless millennia, it has been explored only by those with a certain detachment from mundane reality, its strange seas navigated and its vast mountains climbed by philosophers, mystics, and poets. Well, those halcyon days are over, beatniks.

Johannes Cabal is coming.

Cabal, a necromancer of some little infamy, is employed by the mysterious Fear Institute to lead an expedition into the Dreamlands, an expedition to hunt and destroy the dread Phobic Animus, the font of terrors, the very source of all the world’s fear. They will enter exotic lands where magic is common and monsters abound. Cabal will encounter witches, vile abominations, and far too many zebras.

And, when they finally come close to their goal, Cabal will have to face his own nightmares. But for a man who communes easily with devils and the dead, surely there is nothing left to fear. . . .
