Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I like necromancy. Not personally, but as an author. The myriad kinds of undead have always fascinated me, which is probably why I'm such a big fan of H.P. Lovecraft and August Derleth. Killing the Dead, however, is not horror, so even though it deals with necromancy, the story explores it from a fantasy perspective. In fact, I'd even go so far as to say (without spoilers) that the story remains firmly grounded, something which I think made for a much more satisfying journey.

Much like Fine Wine, Killing the Dead was a lot of fun to write. It's longer than the first one in the series (each story so far gets a little bit longer) and has a more developed plot. You get a bit of a glimpse into our main character's psyche, as he wonders about redemption, and a broader view of Alchester, the city where the series takes place. Like the first story, Killing the Dead serves as an introduction to the title character, while telling a fun story along the way.

If you enjoy an adventurous read about assassins, graveyards, and necromancers that you can easily finish in a sitting, then I think you'll like Killing the Dead.
