9781483033839: The Fear Institute (Johannes Cabal series, Book 3)

[Read by Nicholas Guy Smith]

The third novel in the acclaimed, cult-favorite series starring necromancer Johannes Cabal.

Johannes Cabal and his rather inexact powers of necromancy are back once more. This time, his talents are purchased by the Fear Institute as they hunt for the phobic animus - the embodiment of fear. The three institute members, led by Cabal and his silver key, enter the Dreamlands and find themselves pursued by walking trees plagued with giant ticks, stone men that patrol the ruins of their castles, cats that feed on human flesh, and phobias that torment and devastate. The intrepid explorers are killed off one by one as they traipse through this obfuscating and frustrating world, where history itself appears to alter. Cabal, annoyed that the quest is becoming increasingly heroic, finds himself alone with the institute's only remaining survivor, and after a shockingly violent experiment, begins to suspect that not everything is quite as it seems.

Review:

Praise for JOHANNES CABAL THE DETECTIVE:

''Johannes Cabal would kill me for saying this, but he's my favorite Zeppelin-hopping detective. The fellow has got all the charm of Bond and the smarts of Holmes -- without the pesky morality. Seriously though, don't tell Cabal I so much as mentioned his name.''--Daniel H. Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of How to Survive a Robot Uprising and the forthcoming Robopacolypse

''Is there life beyond death? Definitely! That is, if Johannes Cabal is on your side...The mysteries of past and future--science fiction and the occult, Jules Verne and Robert Anton Wilson--are all wrapped up in Jonathan L. Howard's fast-paced escapade of esoteric adventure.'' --Katherine Neville, New York Times bestselling author

''Johannes is one of the most interesting fictional characters of our still-new century.'' --Huffington Post, praise for the author

''Johannes is one of the most interesting fictional characters of our still-new century.'' --Huffington Post, praise for the author
