Publishers of Johannes Cabal







"Cross Susannah Clarke's Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell with Gregory Maguire's Wicked, and you have this witty and sometimes touching debut novel in the Faustian tradition." Library Journal

"Witty, inventive, and thoroughly entertaining, this rollicking Faustian adventure grabs the reader and holds him until the very last page." Tucson Citizen

"I could continue to rave about this book at great length, but I'll conclude here by saying that Johannes Cabal the Necromancer is perhaps the very best speculative comedy novel I've read over the past fifteen years." Horrorscope

"Johannes is a despicable character, but one the reader will root for nonetheless. Johannes Cabal the Necromancer is one of those books that leaves readers sad when it comes to an end." Las Vegas Review-Journal

"Johannes Cabal -- both the novel, and the man – (rises) up to heights rarely scaled by books equally as funny, underscoring the whole affair in a sense of melancholy, of loss, that floats around Cabal like a cloud; the one trait that gives the novel its surprising emotional depth, and allows both the protagonist and the reader a thin sliver of hope for how the novel might turn out.  After all, Satan should never win, right?" Little Professor
