Detecting Magic with Dick Hunter: The Mort Des Hommes Files:
What begins as a routine missing person case for Seattle's best private investigator, Dick Hunter, turns into a personal vendetta against a cruel murderer. The murderer, Mort des Hommes, happens to be a hell spawn possessing powerful magic.
In order to solve the case and avenge a death, Dick Hunter has to take a crash course in magic from the angelic Amie, and gather magical animal familiars in order to battle and defeat Mort des Hommes.
Edgy and disturbing, the 17 stories in this collection shine light on some of humanity’s darkest actions and thoughts—exposing them in graphic detail as if recorded on camera. Characters and stories too gritty for TV find life as literature. This mix genre collection, with tales of crime, horror, suspense, fantasy, and humor, gives the reader an experience similar to channel surfing, where each story is a different channel.
The Poets Are Dead?
Part tribute to the dead, part celebration of the poetry of life, part affirmation of the god within us all, part homage to our eternal spirit.
He will host these authors on his blog during the BBF:
