GHOSTS OF YESTERDAY by Jack Cady
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Jan. 7, 2003

"Some of the tales don't pass muster, and ultimately the gathering feels like scrapings from the writer's trunk. Cady has his fans, though, who appreciate his adroit phrasing and keen sense of the spooky."
A scattering of short, mostly minor efforts from one of the more underrated American writers of the fantastic (The Haunting of Hood Canal, 2001, etc.). Read full book review >
THE HAUNTING OF HOOD CANAL by Jack Cady
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Oct. 1, 2001

"You would have to be deaf to miss the John Millington Synge in Cady's twanging, Twain-like tall tale. But you can always depend on Cady for a full-blooded monster and a big damn contest between good and evil. It's that Pacific Northwest darkness coursing in his veins, whatever the comedy."
Uncivil actions at the Hood Canal find an immortal entity dragging cars into the Puget Sound sluice's wide and dismal depths. Read full book review >
THE OFF SEASON by Jack Cady
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Nov. 14, 1995

"The lively writing and good insight into the human condition barely mask a ragged, too-familiar tale."
Cady (Inagehi, 1994, etc.) lampoons his Puget Sound stomping ground in this loopy, somewhat loose-limbed eighth novel: a saga of good and evil battling for the souls of a Washington tourist town trapped in its past. Read full book review >
INAGEHI by Jack Cady
Released: May 1, 1994

"Although it falters occasionally, Inagehi effects a taut blend of the mythical and emotional aspects of human life."
An introspective novel by the author of The Sons of Noah and Other Stories (1992, not reviewed), in which a Cherokee woman's examination of the circumstances surrounding her father's death leads to a flirtation with the dark side of Native American cosmology. Read full book review >
