A murder has been committed. A fortune has gone missing, a map has mysteriously appeared and something is frightening the children at night. All is in confusion and the only thing for certain is that a detective is needed, but the first one got a glimpse of what the children are afraid of and left without so much as a word.
There are times when it becomes clear that a different sort of detective is needed; one who understands or at least accepts that threats are not always human or even physical and that solving the case will take more than a sharp eye.
This is the domain of the Occult Detective.
A Grimoire of Eldritch Inquests: Occult Detective Monster Hunter,Volume 1, edited by Josh Reynolds and Miles Boothe, with an introduction by Bob Freeman, is now available in electronic format. Trade and hardback versions will be released in the next week.
Literary history is rich with great occult detectives and A Grimoire of Eldritch Inquests seeks to honor and add to their number, as many of today’s most talented authors, including William Meikle, Justin Gustainis, Tim Prasil, Christine Morgan, offer original tales, steeped in tradition but with a modern edge. The first of two volumes presents 22 tales of monsters, magic and mystery investigated by those that know it best.
