The Pulp Super-Fan has a nice breakdown of Occult Detectives in literature, including Thomas Carnacki-the hero of my newest published short story, “The Magician’s Study” from Carnacki: The New Adventures.
This is killer!
This LEGEND Movie Poster by Christopher King is kicking my butt. Here is a entry from his blog on how he made it.
Though it has been out for a little under a month, I have not had a chance to post much about CARNACKI: The New Adventures! The anthology features some great stories, including my Carnacki tale, “The Magician’s Study.” I haven’t seen any reviews yet, but hope some will be forthcoming. I would love to hear what you thought of it.
Here is the Back of Book:
The adventure begins with an invitation to dinner and a story and, for over 100 years, readers have accepted that invitation from Carnacki, The Ghost Finder.
Since his first appearance in 1912, William Hope Hodgson’s Carnacki has continued to thrill and amaze. Armed with his scientific apparatus of cameras and the ever-present ‘electric pentacle’, Carnacki has investigated cases of hauntings and terror both contrived and real!
Collected here are 11 new stories, and one play, featuring Carnacki and his ‘new adventures’! In these tales, he comes face to face with forces from the ‘Outer Monstrosities’ as well as numerous specters and evil curses. Danger and death are Carnacki’s companions and there are things that even the legendary SaaaMaaa Ritual cannot dispel. Thrill to these new stories of a character who has entranced readers for a century and, hopefully, a century yet to come!
