  • Felix Renn is my new favorite detective He s moody, a bit of a wise ass and a total lone wolf This collection of short stories follows our protagonist as he works some very unusual cases dealing with a dark dimension called, The Black Lands.The first story, Temporary Monsters, indicated that I would enjoy the rest of the collection the dialog is so perfect, witty, dry, full of sarcasm what every good noir needs These stories sort of reminded me of like a very noir style of X Files I particularly [...]


  • I ve been meaning to write this up for a while now Let me begin by saying this collection is absolutely fantastic and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys both noir and supernatural lit The fact that these stories combine the two in a richly imagined and well fleshed out alternate reality should not deter readers who prefer one or the other or none of the above for that matter.The content has been summarized beautifully else where especially in the story notes included for each story, written by [...]


  • So I should start this off by saying that Ian and I have been online pen pals of sorts, ever since we were both published in the same magazine many years ago But as my recent Laird Barron debacle shows, I am an honest reviewer and if I don t like something, I say so.I might also be partial to these stories because I m partial to the genre itself Maybe I m the ideal audience someone who is interested in dipping his toes into reading urban fantasy or supernatural noir or whatever the genre is call [...]


  • This review has been a long time coming, so here it is What Terry Pratchett did for fantasy with his Diskworld series, and Douglas Adams did for science fiction with the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Ian Rogers has done for horror with his novel SuperNOIRtural Tales Fusing the sardonic humour of the epic noir tales of Raymond Chandler and the gothic horrors of H.P Lovecraft, Rogers has created a compelling mythos full of bloody good gore, mystery and biting wit that makes this novel hard to p [...]


  • Finally, a collection of Felix Renn adventures These stories are so much fun Renn, a wisecracking Toronto P.I who keeps getting dragged into cases involving supernatural creatures and the mysterious, encroaching dimension known as the Black Lands, is a character I ve enjoyed following for a few years now, and look forward to following for many Word has it there s a Felix Renn novel in the works Consider me first in line when it comes out.


  • Some things just go together Peanut butter and chocolate Lowell and Hardy Salt and vinegar Noir and the Supernatural.As for the latter, I mean, why not Noir often mostly centers on investigations of something unexplained, something dark and deadly These are the exact same concepts which anchor Supernatural Fiction As such, Paranormal Investigators have proliferated for years in various media, from television, film, to dozens and dozens of books What sets Ian Rogers collection SuperNOIRtural Tale [...]


  • Felix Renn is a private detective in a world where monsters are real Now, that little sentence doesn t really set Felix Renn apart from other characters in the urban fantasy genre, but the world Ian Rogers has created with his Black Lands mythology does.I became aware of Ian Rogers work a couple years ago, thanks to the Man Eating Bookworm, back when the first three stories in this collection only existed as chapbooks It s heartening to see them brought together for convenience and a chance at a [...]


  • Every House Is Haunted, Ian Rogers ReLit award winning debut collection, is a recent favorite of mine It was a wonderful read, yet left me craving What better book to read next than this follow up collection The aptly titled SuperNOIRtural Tales is a collection of five previously published short works that fuse noir with horror to create something refreshingly unique Each story is told from the perspective of Felix Renn, a private investigator with a tendency to attract the supernatural This wo [...]


  • This just needs to be said Felix Renn kicks ass I d previously read about half of this book through the first three Felix Renn chapbooks published by Burning Effigy Temporary Monsters was fun Ash Angels was bleak And Black Eyed Kids was scary as hell There s one particular scene that scared the shit out of me, and there s really only a couple of times a story has done that to me The only other time I believe I was as scared as I was with BEK was when Danny Torrance met the woman in Room 217 in T [...]


  • Well, that was vaguely terrifying I had to stop during The Brick story and remind myself that my house is not haunted.Now, this collection started off a little weaker than it ended I do like some of the things that Rogers did with vampires and werewolves in the first story but I think it s when he strays from the overused supernatural creatures into creative uses, then the book really picks up That said, I loved the last story Saw the ending coming but it was still awesome I had to get used to [...]


  • SuperNOIRtural Tales is a series of short stories about Felix Renn, a private detective in Toronto The stories take place in an alternative universe, where another dimension called The Black Lands was discovered at the end of WWII The Black Lands is home to the monsters that find their way to our dimension through portals that are popping up around the world Felix may not want anything to do with The Black Lands, but the creatures from The Black Lands always find their way to Felix.I don t usual [...]


  • I won a signed copy of this book in a giveaway I was intrigued by the concept of a short fiction collection of a private investigator dealing with the supernatural I m a fan of all of these elements and Supernoirtural Tales didn t disappoint in its execution There are four novelette novella length stories and one short story I liked the author s notes after each story detailing his inspiration behind each piece At the end there is a short history of the Blacklands I like the sense of world build [...]


  • Ian Rogers knows how to write a Private Investigator I ve read a lot of Supernatural PI fiction both long and short over the years from Steve Niles Criminal Macabre to Jim Butcher s Dresden Files and short stories in collections such as Weird Noir and what struck me about Roger s novellas is his ability to wrap the mundane PI work around the supernatural Real World PIs work insurance fraud, messy divorces, missing people did I mention insurance fraud It s not the most exciting stuff, but in begi [...]


  • I picked up SuperNOIRtural Tales after hearing Ian read at the Ottawa ChiSeries from his work in progress novel set in the same world and with the same characters The reading was brilliant Ian had the audience in stitches and then hanging off the edge of our seats when things turned dark The reading was recorded and well worth the watch youtube watch v 3NR1lI loved this collection A witty and dark world of the noir PI mixed with even darker supernatural world where vamps and werewolves are only [...]


  • This collection of short fiction about supernatural detective Felix Renn, told in first person point of view, is reminiscent of the hard boiled detective pulp tales of the 1940s, only with lots of supernatural creatures and creepers, and laced with humor and vigorous dialogue guaranteed to put a smile on the reader s face Ian Rogers is an impressive talent Read all his work And watch for his name The lights are slamming on.



  • Ian Rogers twists and warps the natural world in his Black Lands stories, taking normal experience, normal reactions, and normal people and placing them into contexts where they are forced to face trickles of the weird drifting in from otherworldly portals from the monstrous Black Lands This is a world where children, for generations told that the monsters that they imagined under their beds are now real and are taught how to cope with the monstrous in their school A world with governments like [...]
