About the Author: Chris Dubecki

Chris Dubecki grew up in a quaint old town nestled in a valley deep in the Oak Ridges Moraine, in a house that was probably haunted. He’s been writing fantastical stories since he was able to hold a pencil, and dabbled with high fantasy, cyberpunk, and other genres – completing his first 175k word fantasy novel at 15, which has never seen the light of day.

Now, he lives in Toronto, and spends his non-day job time engaged in all manner of geekery, from praising the Gods of Chaos in Warhammer 40k, to playing rascally thieves in tabletop RPGs, to repeatedly blatting his face with a rake in Dark Souls 3.

He holds Neil Gaiman and Brandon Sanderson in the highest of esteem and thinks Mistborn might be one of his favourite books ever, but other books he’s been known to love include Neverwhere and The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, Good Omens by Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke, and The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. He’s also a fan of Jim Butcher, R. Scott Bakker, Robert Jordan, Julia Grey, Terry Brooks, and many others.

He loves cats, cooking, and has a deep, abiding fondness in his alien psyche for all things Fey, Lovecraftian horrors, and other such inhuman monstrosities of the Blue-and-Orange Morality kind. Like cats.

Pre-med student Tyler Dufresne is way too inexperienced to deal with this magical crap. The spectre he finds after exploring a strange mausoleum linked to the inexplicable suicides of two of his relatives scares the hell out of him. Then, within days, he’s lied to by a priest, attacked by a knife-wielding madman, and accosted by a psychic who hates him just because she met him. Seriously.

Ty needs to focus on his own life, and not becoming a redshirt in someone else’s story. Besides, countless Dungeons & Dragons games have taught him that newbie adventurers get stabbed more often than not. Problem is, he may be a novice, but he is a real-life necromancer, making it hard to ignore the storm of the Afterwold’s spirits growing in the sky. The trauma of the accident which incited his magical powers has held him back for years, but now he needs to learn about his abilities. Fast.

Worse, the rest of Toronto’s supernatural underside is apathetic to the threat. Ty knows he’s no big damn hero, but wilfull blindness is something Ty just can’t stomach. The only clues are a haunted misericorde and three surivors of the cult it once belonged to. The misericorde’s also the most recent murder weapon, and - of course - it’s missing.

Meanwhile, the spectre grows stronger with every ‘suicide’ it causes. With All Souls’ Day fast approaching, there isn’t much time left before the cult survivors gain absolute power over a force of Death unequalled this side of the Veil.

And, as if threatening the friends, family, and city he loves wasn’t enough, they also want Ty as its host. Yeah, over his dead body - but that’s kind of the point.
