Book and tv

My latest book from the library is Johannes Cabal the Necromancer by Jonathan L. Howard. Here's the blurb from Amazon ... A charmingly gothic, fiendishly funny Faustian tale about a brilliant scientist who makes a deal with the Devil, twice. Johannes Cabal sold his soul years ago in order to learn the laws of necromancy. Now he wants it back. Amused and slightly bored, Satan proposes a little wager: Johannes has to persuade one hundred people to sign over their souls or he will be damned forever. This time for real. Accepting the bargain, Jonathan is given one calendar year and a traveling carnival to complete his task. With little time to waste, Johannes raises a motley crew from the dead and enlists his brother, Horst, a charismatic vampire to help him run his nefarious road show, resulting in mayhem at every turn.

Meanwhile, I'm still looking for a worthy tv series to rent. I've been watching a few episodes online of Sleepy Hollow ...

... a fantasy/horror show in which Ichabod Crane, history teacher at Oxford, is drafted into the revolutionary war, has a change of heart and becomes an agent for George Washington, and is killed on the battlefield, only to be resurrected in the present with a mission to stop a coming apocalypse ;) There are some fun bit players in the show ... Clancy Brown (the Kurgan) and John Cho (Mr. Sulu) ... and it's fun, but sadly not yet on DVD, so the search continues.
