All is not what it seems...

In the murky London gloom, a knife-wielding gentleman named Jack prowls the midnight streets with his faithful watchdog Snuff – gathering together the grisly ingredients they will need for an ancient and unearthly rite. For soon after the death of the moon, black magic will summon the Elder Gods back into the world. And all manner of Players, both human and undead, are preparing to participate.

Some have come to open the gates. Some have come to slam them shut. And now the dread night approaches – so let the Game begin.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'One of Zelazny's most delightful books' Neil Gaiman

'The last great novel by one of the giants of the genre' George R. R. Martin

‘A madcap blend of horror tropes and fantasy... There aren’t many authors who would set out to write a novel in which the Wolfman and Jack the Ripper were the two heroes... And I’m not sure anyone else could have made it work’ Science Fiction Chronicle

‘Sparkling, witty, delightful. Zelazny’s best for ages, perhaps his best ever’ Kirkus Reviews

“Favourite read”

This is one of my favourite books and has been since I first stumbled across it in a bookshop many years ago now. The story is great, told from an unusual perspective, that of the various human characters animal... More

“Lovecraftian overtones from a dog's PoV”

I just can't really fault this book. I picked it up on a whim at work because I liked the cover and the opening line. A uniquely quirky tale told from the point of view of the familiars of various humans who are... More
