We can see him here, practically fully formed, almost identical to the person we eventually see in his first novel, Johannes Cabal The Necromancer. Intelligent, amoral, and up to his eyeballs in danger in snark. Yes, this is the way that I love him.
It is not necessary to read this before any of the other stories that feature him. No events from this short story carry over to his novels. It is an admitting character piece and Jonathan L Howard's wit is a lively and quick as ever. If you have never read Cabal before, this is a fine place to start. If you have read other stories about him, this will bring more of the same.
The story is a deft blend of mundane and supernatural, as Johannes Cabal the necromancer battles the skirting board people, wee, unseen folk who live between the walls of Cabal’s house. What begins as a battle for peace and quiet quickly becomes a frantic, and often hilarious, struggle for survival against terrifying supernatural forces.
The Good: Johannes Cabal is a cracklingly fresh, acidic protagonist: he’d be the villain of any other story. But not only is this hot headed young necromancer the hero – he’s a ball of fun to read.
Both humour and story are in the vain of Terry Pratchett, although only if Pratchett wrote The Call of Cthulhu, and Howard contributes his own lightning wit and a refreshing anti-hero sense of justice.
Improvements: Blustery Day is really just too short for its own ending. While satisfying, the ending lacked the elaboration of the earlier story.
Verdict: If you’re a fan of Pratchett, the paranormal, or DnD, you’ll find a lot to love here. The Blustery Day is an entertaining, energetic and above all original read.
