Ht to you by some of the finest dark fiction writers around Spinetingler Award nominee Paul D Brazill was born in England and lives in Poland His writing has appeared in a number of magazines and anthologies including the 2011 Ma. This series opener is by another fellow Trestle Press author and my copy was provided free by the publisher Being an avid fan of the fiction of the supernatural my interest in the concept was naturally piued right away since it s one of the original takes on the genre to come down the pike in my long experience Of course it s not without literary antecedents some of which Brazill may have read and been influenced by Like the protagonist of PN Elrod s Vampire Files series Roman Dalton is a detective with a supernatural curse though in his case it s lycanthropy Brazill s take on the werewolf motif resembles Anthony Boucher s in that his werewolf isn t evil just because of his condition and doesn t become a blood crazed indiscriminate killer when he turns but in his wolf man state he does have a craving for human flesh that reuires strength to resist and which can get out of control His take is otherwise pretty traditional Dalton only turns during the period when the moon is full or nearly full and can be killed by silver Like the typical werewolves of the classic 30s horror movies though unlike those of folklore he doesn t completely turn into a wolf but takes on a hybrid form And like Boucher s Fergus O Breen Dalton s detective practice can include cases with than a touch of the weirdThat said Brazill s literary vision and style are all his own He s clearly in love with the possibilities of language and uses it with mastery his prose is similie and metaphor rich even darkly poetic at times His real distinctive though is a complete wedding of the supernatural elements to a full blown noir vision dark cynical and existentially pessimistic and permeating every nook and cranny of his world His main setting is an unnamed city that s as rife with vice and menace as Femme Noir s Port Nocturne All the familiar noir tropes are here a self pitying emotionally wounded booze drenched ex cop detective the series title is an adjective clause meaning the hero is inebriated periodically by the baleful effect of the moon not as I initially assumed that he s a drunk in an SF lunar colony but he does drink a LOT the mysterious and sexy temptress who has her own agenda that s probably trouble for the protagonist ruthless and feuding crime bosses cops who don t always play by the rules violent action triumphs that are ambiguous at best But here they re also throughly blended with supernatural elements which even pull me in as a reader who s not on the whole a real fan of noirThis initial installment of the series isn t a single connected story it s a series of several vignettes one of which shows how Dalton then still a cop became a werewolf If I d have one criticism it would be that the ending of the last one felt a little rushed and left one major element unresolved though it would reuire a spoiler to explain that further But I m definitely hooked for the further installments of the series which are written several are on sale already by other writers Brazil intends this to become a literary franchise where various authors can develop the characters and world fully I m eager to see the further unfolding of the saga
