Night Birds

The audio version of Airship 27’s 2014 anthology, Occult Detectives, is now available as as audio book, courtesy of Radio Archives. Besides my contribution, it includes stories by Joel Jenkins, Jim Beard and Ron Fortier.


From the blurb:

From the days of the Wild West, Joel Jenkins offers up his Indian shaman hero, Lone Crow. Then we have Josh Reynolds’ colourful Charles St. Cyprian, the queen’s own royal occultist, followed by Jim Beard’s Sgt. Janus, the spirit breaker. And we culminate with a little known pulp classic figure: Ravenwood, the Stepson of Mystery, as chronicled by Ron Fortier. Get ready to take on possessed gunfighters, eerie mesmerising spirits, a bewitching temptress, and a legion of the undead as these four brand new tales usher you into thrilling adventures beyond the realm of the ordinary. Your guides…the Occult Detectives.

My story, “The Strix Society”, finds the Royal Occultist and his assistant investigating the eponymous nocturnal society and their enigmatic founder, Helen Strix. Guest-starring a young Oswald Mosley, who gets beaten up and tossed into a closet.

You can download the audio book via Amazon or Audible. You can also buy a hard copy or download the book for the Kindle, if you prefer to read it, rather than listen to it.
