Johannes Cabal the Necromancer by Jonathan L Howard
Johannes Cabal the Necromancer

scullypdx, January 4, 2012

This hilarious read is one part "Ocean's Eleven," one part Barnum & Bailey, and one part "Angel." Necromancer Johannes Cabal sells his soul to the devil -- but he wants it back. (Certain depraved scientific experiments go wonky when the scientist has no soul.) The devil doubles down. Cabal can have his soul back, but only if he gets 100 others to give up theirs. To accomplish the job, the devil gives Cabal a small wad of Dark Power and a ramshackle carnival train gone to seed.

Hilarity ensues. Will Cabal succeed in tricking the devil at his own game? What exactly happened between Cabal and his stomach-lurchingly hideous brother Horst? What happens when you resurrect a body but leave out all the fat? What kind of experiments is Cabal into, exactly? The plot pulls you along, but the adventures and wisecracks take center stage. A must read.
