Alternate title Something Wicked This Way Comes the Carnie Version Johannes Cabal is sorely vexed Some time ago he traded his soul to the Devil as it was proving an impediment in his studies of necromancy Alas he acted too hastily after much research he s realized that his soul is needed for his research to be have meaning He might also have an ulterior motive The epitome of the logistician the obsessive scientist Cabal is a hysterical straight man to the absurd humor of those around him As his brother mocks him For tonight only Horst held his hands up to an imaginary sign Thrown out of the Best universities excommunicated from all the most popular religions and many of the obscure ones fresh from his recent engagement in Hell we present Johannes Cabal Necromancer Toot toot toot He mimed blowing trumpets You re a constant font of hilarity aren t you said Cabal unsmiling And I ll have you know that I was never ever thrown out of my universities I always left of my own accord To regain his soul Cabal makes a second deal with Satan bring him exactly one hundred souls in a year s time and Cabal will get his own back Hell Satan s feeling generous enough to lend him a Dark Carnival that never uite made it into circulation Or is he After all Cabal just suggested Satan apologize to God for his pride Despite that Cabal is insightful enough to realize he needs someone who understands human nature He seeks out his brother Horst a being with a few unsavory habits but a surprisingly strong ethical code We re supposed to be doing the devil s work and you ve gone and contaminated it all with the whiff of virtue I really don t think you ve uite got the hang of being an agent of evil I enjoy Johannes Cabal s voice Howard hits the perfect note satisfying the little scientist in me as well as the artist in me annoyed by the scientific worldview with both sides appreciating the humor from Cabal s straight edged approach Frankly I also empathize just the littlest bit with his misanthropy the huddled masses who fail to appreciate the pursuit of science An idea started to crystallize It might not work of course and there was always the possibility that he might have to upset or hurt a few of these excuses for people So it wasn t all bad news Plotting is relatively straightforward much like Something Wicked only becoming complicated at the end Like all folktales what the reader ultimately wants to know is if Cabal was able to escape the Devil s Bargain so the majority of the tale centers on collecting souls while the reader anticipates the outcome In the meantime the journey the carnival takes through the towns and the details of the carnival entertain There s also some interesting character development or lack thereof that elevates it beyond simple farce Midway through there are a couple sections that are done in epistolary form by various people A police blotter proves surprisingly funny The last letter is perhaps a little jarring to the narrative and takes it the most off trackThe ending is a perfect capstone A bit of an emotional roller coaster it ends with a satisfactory and narrative consistent confrontation I admire Howard for reaching for something a little complex I d recommend this to fans of Something Wicked perhaps to Pratchett fans fans of A Lee Martinezand people who might like their humor a little dark but with solid ethics I think you have to enjoy the word play have a dark sense of humor but not dark enough to want bloodshed and violence Meanwhile I ll be looking forward to continuing the series

There weren t very many laugh out loud moments for me in Jonathan Howard s Johannes Cabal the Necromancer but this dark comedy put a smile on my face during big parts of the book Characters such as Johannes Cabal and his vampiric brother Horst are presented with a light touch even though Cabal s goal is to gather 100 souls for Satan so he can get his own soul back There is no real new ground broken here unless you count demons running a carnival as a twist but it was an amusing and well written read with lots of really good dialogue 35 stars
