Giveaway: SuperNOIRtural Tales by Ian Rogers


Just yesterday Ryan St. Onge posted a bang-up review of the short story collection Every House Is Haunted.  It’s by this guy named Ian Rogers, and if Ryan’s review doesn’t convince you that Ian is a helluva author and a really swell guy, what I’m about to tell you sure as hell will. 

Ian’s been kind enough to offer up a signed paperback copy of his new short story collection, SuperNOIRtural Tales for one lucky reader.  Only residents of North America are eligible (sorry all you folks overseas). But instead of me telling you what it’s about, I’ll let you the book blurb do the talking.
Felix Renn is a private investigator in a supernatural world, an alternate reality where a dark dimension called The Black Lands co-exists alongside our own. Travelling to and from The Black Lands is dangerous — and illegal — but that doesn’t stop some of the creatures that reside there from crossing over into our world from time to time. 

In this collection of stories, Felix encounters a variety of terrifying entities, including ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and the dreaded Black-Eyed Kids.
 In a world where paranormal has become the norm, each new case may be his last.SuperNOIRtural Tales collects all of the Felix Renn stories published to date, as well as a brand-new 50,000-word novella, “The Brick.”
 
Featuring an introduction by Mike Carey, author of the Felix Castor novels and writer for the DC/Vertigo comic book series 
Lucifer, Hellblazer, and The Unwritten.
