Editorial Reviews

Review

I would definitely recommend The Amulet to readers who pine for Lovecraft meets Chandler storylines, or to readers who simply wish their urban fantasy-tinged fiction took more risks. - CSI: Librarian

(The Amulet) ... meets a basic starting formula, but Meikle actively makes that formula his. The writing itself is crisp, filled with good description and strong dialogue. The Scottish setting, while not prominent, grounds the reader in a sense of place. The characters, while themselves variations on noir tropes, are beleivable, and more importantly, likable. All of this, taken together, makes for a smooth, enjoyable read. - Strange Latitudes

The Amulet moves along at a brisk pace, with Derek being directed both overtly and covertly by his femme fatale to a climax that tests the limits of the PI and his client and her husband as they battle to keep evil at bay. Whether or not Derek can claim victory at the end, he will be forever and unequivocally changed. I encourage you to pour yourself a couple of fingers of whisky and visit Meikle's and Derek's Glasgow some evening as the shadows grow long. - New Pulp

(The Amulet)... is a loving romp in and out of both the Lovecraft Mythos and the noir detective novel, predictable in its own way but unapologetically so, and ultimately fulfilling because most of us have loved the same two sets of elements forever and can't resist whenever they are brought together again. - Chizine

Bottom line, I enjoyed every bit of (The Amulet). Meikle's writing makes you feel like you're there, in the rain with Derek Adams, searching seedy pawn shops and bars for the answers. The atmosphere is terrific, and the author knows that sometimes less is more. - The Lovecraft ezine

A lot of writers have tried their hand at mixing horror themes with the private eye genre, generally with poor results, but Meikle has a good grasp on the mixed genres. I loved The Amulet, but The Sirens is even better. If the concept of a private dick investigating cases mixed with classic horror themes interests you, I urge you to give them a try. - Dead in the South

(The Sirens)... reminded me a bit of Sarban, which is most definitely a compliment. - Don D'Ammassa

(The Skin Game)... is a wild fast paced story that is littered with great touches of humour. The story never flags or gets bogged down. I've not read many werewolf stories, but the mythology of the werewolves here and the history of the belt are a nice twist. As with many of Willie's other books, The Skin Game has a strong cast of supporting characters, so much so you begin to wonder if there are a lot of Glaswegians wondering if that's them that are being portrayed within this novel. Seriously I had a great time reading this, and can't wait for my next fix of Meikle - Ginger Nuts of Horror

From the Author

I read widely, both in the crime and horror genres, but my crime fiction in particular keeps returning to older, pulpier, bases.

My series character, Glasgow PI Derek Adams, is a Bogart and Chandler fan, and it is the movies and Americana of the '40s that I find a lot of my inspiration for him, rather than in the modern procedural.

That, and the old city, are the two main drivers for the Midnight Eye stories.

Old Glasgow still lies, slumbering, a dreaming god waiting for the stars to be right again.

Derek Adams, The Midnight Eye, knows the ways of the old city. And, if truth be told, he prefers them to the new.
