It must be the season – it’s cold and rainy, and the countryside looks deserted and dreary.
I feel like ghost stories.
And while I’d like to go and write some, I’m having lots of fun reading the first book in the Sgt. Janus series, by Jim Beard, published by Airship 27.
Sgt. Janus, Spirit Breaker is a solid collection of stories that are at the same time very traditional and yet very original and fresh and new.
This is exactly what I needed in these lonely rainy nights.
Sgt. Janus – the man himself – is a fine addition to a long gallery of occult detectives, and I’ll certainly check out the other books in the series (there’s one out, Sgt. Janus Returns, and more to come).
