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 which 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...… (mere)

Excellent. Number 2 The Detective was less paranormal than number 1. I liked that less and had low expectations for 3, but three was excellent. ( )

I was slightly less than enthused with the previous novel in this series (capers on an airship with little no to supernatural elements doesn't quite do it for me), but Cabal is back to his charmingly ascorbic self in this volume. He is enlisted by the Fear Institute to guide their quest to find and vanquish the Phoebic Animus (fear personified, allegedly) in the Dreamlands. Howard's narration is a touch chopy at points, but I'll excuse it due to the fact that he has to move his characters on such a lengthy adventure across a vast "world." His attention to detail and vast imagination are well-suited to this landscape, as it allows for an endless amount of scenarios - no matter how absurd. In fact, it is quite amusing to see Cabal deal with the sheer insanity of the Dreamlands - even if it makes the reader laugh at rather than with him. ( )

Jonathan Howard writes that sarcastic style of English humour that in the wrong hands is forced and unconvincing; with Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett he stays just on the entertaining side. Johannes Cabal is an anti-hero just sympathetic enough to keep the reader’s interest and sympathy. Howard’s world-building is superb, his secondary characters engaging, his big villains interesting; his minor villains delightfully so. This third novel is the best yet, and could stand alone but is far better enjoyed in sequence. ( )

Quite interesting. Maybe not the best book I've read of Howards, but this is still a fascinating almost-sword and sorcery adventure in the realms of dream... and Cthulhu monsters abounding with a huge dose of Ghouls. :)

And why not? This takes place in the dreamland where necromancy is more than slightly potent... It lets you put talking heads on poles to help you through all the dark places of the world. :)

I admit I liked the previous two Cabal novels a bit more, but as a straight Cthulhu adventure that isn't so much scary as purely imaginative, it works quite well. Johannes himself started out strong but even the dream dragged him down a bit. The other good men of the Fear Institute who bankrolled this little expedition were great fodder for the beasties there. :)

As I said, this is pretty decent. :) Not the best of the series, but serviceable and it leads to a very interesting development at the end. I can't wait to continue on. :) ( )

A good book—it is Johannes Cabal, after all—but didn’t live up to the last one. ( )

It was not such a peculiar house in and of itself.

Cabal had a sense that the whole expedition had taken on the character of certain doom, but it was dooming them all so very, very slowly that it was difficult to get upset about it. It was like travelling by glacier to be hanged.
When I'm not running billets doux between my employers, Johannes, I deal in terror, and chaos, and madness primarily. Death also, but that's just a hobby, really.
It's difficult to be objective about the subjective, but Cabal maintained assorted mental checks and balances to confirm that he was reasonably sure his mentality remained recognisable, and that he had not gone inconviently mad. As Descartes would have been quick to tell him, his perceptions could not necessarily be trusted, but then again, if he was so mad that he didn't realise he was utterly mad, it was academic anyway.
