Side story to the novel, THE DEVIL'S RIGHT HAND!

*** For more previews of the novel, see THE NIGHT WALK MEN and KRO. ***

For Geoff Saylor, woken in the middle of an ordinary week night, life is about to change. Geoff is a middle-class everyman. He works hard and is good at his desk job downtown. But evenings and weekends are spent with his family in the suburbs. He and his wife have been dreaming about making their middle-class lives just a little bit better. But Geoff is about to get a visitor who brings with him the terrible, bland smell of death. Hold tight. The Night Walk Men are afoot -- and the Saylors' dreams of a better life are put on hold...in shocking fashion.


Editorial Reviews

Review

McIntyre's debut novel, ON THE GATHERING STORM was VOTED as one of the TOP 20 DEBUT AUTHORS --Goodreads Choice Awards
 
"What [McIntyre] gives readers is a highly satisfying glimpse of a very real terror.--Ryne Douglas Pearson, screenwriter of "Knowing"
 
"[McIntyre] writes some of the most beautiful sentences being published today." --Vincent Zandri, author of "The Remains"
 
"Definitely felt like reading Neil Gaiman with occasional creepiness of Stephen King. Jason is my all-time favorite writer, his stories keep me up all night" --Evie Seo, Bookish Reviews
 
"This is a roller coaster ride: you're in the hot sun, chugging to the top, anticipating the drop the whole way and then--boom--the drop comes and you're gasping for air. The hot wind blasts you and your guts are in your throat. In the last half of the book, some scenes had me by the larynx. Highly recommended!" --Sony Reader Store
 
"A must read, but not for the faint of heart." --EZread.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling... May 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
A story told as if someone is relaying a secret, like being let in on inside information. A compulsive read. A story about loyalty, duty, friendship, life, and death. Do accidents ever happen, or is everything just a part of a bigger plan? You must read The Night Walk Men to find out...

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Jason McIntyre book! May 16, 2011
By kimba
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this book! The Night Walk Men is seriously one of the most conflicted yet amazing stories I've read. It is fast paced while telling an age old story. It is seriously dark, with a goth/comic book feel to it, but isnt a story without hope. Within the darkness, McIntyre has crafted some of the most beautifully written lines Ive ever had the pleasure of reading. The characters are extremelly strong and McIntyre has created them briliantly and fully within the constraints of a short story. The story makes me itch to draw...with lots of blacks and greys... The Night Walk Men is my favorite of all the his books and I would suggest reading this story to sample the intricate style and beautiful flow of Jason McIntyre's storytelling voice. He is truly a master of the written word with a contemporary edge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating May 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I want more! I loved this story and would like to double my star rating. The Night Walk Men is short but don't let the length fool you. The substance packed into this novelette is astounding. This story is dark, yet full of hope; obscure, yet enlightening. As always, Jason McIntyre paints a portrait with his words. His imagery is perfection and will haunt me for some time in ways both wondrous and disconcerting. I hope to see more of The Night Walk Men soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely Enjoyable May 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Fantastic short story. Absolutely fantastic. The voice is reminiscent of the narrator from Dostoevsky's "Notes From Underground" with a twist of Neil Gaiman thrown in for kicks.. All I know is that it was past midnight because I couldn't stop reading it.

Do yourself a favor and download this...and be ready to digest it slowly. There are some great lines in this piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review: Corinthian, by Jason McIntyre October 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third story in The Night Walk Men series or universe (however you'd like to label it) that I've read. The others being The Night Walk Men: A Novella and The Night Walk Men: Kro. I enjoyed those two, and I enjoyed Corinthian, as well.

What really makes this story work for me, like the other two stories, is the narration. The style that McIntyre uses for the way Sperro tells the story draws me in each time. I'm not much a fan of the 2nd person, I almost always despise it, but in McIntyre's work, I think it's the only way to get the mood just right.

This story might be short, but it helps hint at the bigger "world view" that the Night Walk Men are involved in. It's another small glimpse into what they do and who they are. It left me wanting, but not in a painful way. I'm wanting more, and that'll come when I read The Devil's Right Hand (The Night Walk Men), which will surely be sooner after reading this story. But it's also left me wanting in a way that I can be content formulating my own theories about the Night Walk Men. I enjoy a story that'll make me think beyond the text. McIntyre never fails to make this happen for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome piece of writing December 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I notice a book on Amazon with polarized ratings and reviews, it spurs my curiosity. That was the case with this 39-page short story: folks either tended to love it or dismiss it. I'm in the former camp. Geez, it's like the guy is channeling Rod Serling while Ray Bradbury whispers in his ear.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very well-written gothic tale August 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
McIntyre has his narrator reveal secrets about death while he tells the tale of Obsidian a black-robed night-walker who brings about death. He tells about Obsidian's feelings about his job, Obsidian's superiors, mistakes that sometimes occur, and the penalties for mistakes. He tells also about a 109 year old blind black man and the young girl Gabriela. The story is very well written and interesting.
