Requiem excerpt

A very nice lady e-mailed recently to tell me that she couldn't pull up the .pdf file of the first chapter of Requiem for the Devil.

Of course, I investigated right away (okay, several days later). It turns out the file didn't even exist on the server. Big fat OOPS.

I'd been meaning to convert it to HTML so it could be read right on the website without the need for Adobe Reader. This seemed like the perfect opportunity.

And here it is, for your easy-on-the-eyes pleasure, in case you haven't already read it, the first chapter of Requiem for the Devil.

Note: if you print it, it comes out in a nice printer-friendly version without all the sidebar and menu crap. Because here at, we want you to be happy. Or at least content. Not disgruntled. Not on our account, anyway.

As a special thanks, I gave a signed copy of Eyes of Crow to the lady who alerted me about the problem. So if you find a serious error on this site, let me know and you might get a tangible representation of my thanks. Because here at, we don't shoot the messengers, we bring them inside and offer them brunch.
