A debut novel from Jonathan L. Howard, a British game designer whose credit include titles such as Broken Sword. Howard's first foray into fiction looks very promising indeed - Johannes Cabal The Necromancer is a witty fantasy that has been given a beautiful hardcover release from Headline and "...combines the chills and thrills of old-fashioned gothic tales like The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, the mischievous humour of Wicked, and the sophisticated charms of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell and spins the Faustian legend into a fresh, irreverent, and irresistible new adventure."
