Book One of the Noctiviganti Series
Jim Rankin is Noctiviganti, a “night wanderer” who can visit the world known as the Fringe in his dreams. Jim is an occult detective, a killer and a secret policeman, the warrior retainer and unquestioning servant of the Paramount, the tyrannical yet supremely beautiful queen of the Fringe. The Fringe is the world of myth and mystery from which our own world was born at the beginning of time. At its heart is a great city, the City at the Heart of Her Dreaming, and in the city is a bottomless Pit or Abyss.
In A Season of Strange Dreams, Jim has been in hiding for five years, wandering aimlessly from state to state after killing his best friend Frank Barnham on a botched mission for the Paramount. Prompted by messages from the spirits of the Fringe, Jim comes out of hiding and takes a Greyhound home to Nottamun, the city where he used to work with Frank before the killing.
A reckless occultist has opened a gateway to the Fringe. Someone has to stop more of the Fringe’s magic from corrupting our world. Someone has to close it. Jim unfortunately is it.
