If you’ve been paying attention, you might recall the Royal Occultist Primer I made available for download a few weeks ago. If not, it’s a PDF that contains three previously published stories–“The Artist as Wolf”, “Iron Bells” and “Wendy-Smythe’s Worm”–that act as a sort of a taste-test for the Royal Occultist stories. If you enjoy these, you’ll like the others.

Well, Richard Caldwell of The Lottery Party site (which you might recall from this review of the first issue of Black Treacle) decided to review the RO Primer:

Reynolds has written many more stories of these characters and their post World War I environs, and as evidenced here he does a remarkably splendid job in marrying folklore and the occult with a cast that flirts with alternate history. These plots and scripts are very maturely executed, with the banter of his two leads lending a human touch to these events of otherworldly nightmare.

I encourage you to check out the full review. And if you’re interested, you can pick up a copy of the Primer HERE.
