Johannes Cabal, the Necromancer by Jonathan L. Howard

The dead, the undead and the soulless. Sometimes (most of the time) I take a break from serious literature to read something fun and fast. I hesitate to compare anything to Good Omens, but Johannes Cabal, the Necromancer uses the same humor, dash of incompetent characters and good vs. evil concept of Pratchet/Gaiman’s fabulous novel.

Johannes (the necromancer) gains a carnival and the job of collecting 100 souls. He has the help of Satan’s minions and vampiric brother, which is good, because he is rather bad with people (go figure). Adventures are had, evil is accomplished, and deals with the devil are made.
