“Completely unpredictable! Like something out of a Quentin Tarantino film, a memoir, and something so bizarre…out of the Twilight Zone.” – Jennifer Nessen
“[McIntyre] writes some of the most beautiful sentences being published today.” – Vincent Zandri, author of “The Remains”
ON THE GATHERING STORM
Jason McIntyre’s debut novel, “On The Gathering Storm”, is a story of fear, redemption and loss. But it’s also a parable on the persistence of hope.
At 29, Hannah Garretty is pursuing her lifelong dream of being a paid photographer. But in a curl of circumstance, she’s snatched from her bohemian life on the island and vanishes into a forest lair where unspeakable things have happened. . . and will continue to happen.
As Hannah grapples with her captivity and the knowledge bestowed to her by a special gift, we catch a glimpse of her past life, before the abduction, through the lens of her childhood on the mainland and the last time she came face to face with her own mortality. The story is visceral and powerful, exploring the duality of our consuming lives versus our feeling lives, our purpose in being, and whether there is a scrap of light in anything as dark as Hannah’s ordeal.
Sebastion Redfield is being hunted. A young man on the brink of true adulthood, Redfield experiences the trauma of his life when a trespasser breaks into his home. The psychiatrist assigned to help him recover from the break-in begins to unravel a more disturbing truth about his ordeal: that someone or some thing has been hunting him.
“Thalo Blue” delves into the life and times of Sebastion who, through his unique condition, may be the only person alive able to stop the mysterious “thief”. This figure is unstoppable, even by death it seems, and he wants something that only Sebastion possesses. An explosive confrontation in his home during the middle of a brutal winter begins their terrifying encounter, one that will eventually stretch across a city, a township and a country.
Recovery is Sebastion’s next phase of life—and not just physical recovery but an emotional healing from a life of family drama and the burden of being ‘gifted’. Sebastion and the psychiatrist assigned to help him deal with the break-in quickly realize that the ordeal is not over. Now, to save his own life, he and the therapist must dredge up his dark, painful past for clues as to who or what the terrifying thief may be.
Part literary noir, part mystery, and part horror, “Thalo Blue” is sure to paralyze readers and keep them gnawing at their nails at each startling revelation.

THE DEVIL’S RIGHT HAND
The saga began with The Night Walk Men, the #1 Kindle Suspense novella by Jason McIntyre. Now it continues with The Devil’s Right Hand. And a war is brewing.
Meet Benton Garamond. He’s lost. He careens through the wet streets of downtown Vancouver on a collision course with a dirty lawyer named Levy Gillis. He wants something from Gillis and he aims to get it.
Meet Donovan Lo, former drug kingpin and not bad with the ladies if you ask him. He’s in hiding and has a plan to leave his empire for good. But something — and someone — aims to put a bullet through his last big score.
Now meet Sperro. He has a lot to say about his job, about Benton Garamond and about Donovan Lo. Sperro will be your tour guide.
“We are Night Walk Men, imbued with the lives of at least ten men, and we walk among you like a blur, unseen but often sensed or smelled like pollen in the air when you can’t see flowers—or the tingle you get when the hairs on your neck stand up.
“If you hear footsteps on the parched earth behind you, or if dry autumn leaves scrape concrete with a breeze, that’s most likely one of us, walking just a little ahead or just a little behind. If it’s dark and you climb into your car and for once—for no reason at all—wonder why you didn’t check the back seat for strangers, one of my brothers is mostly likely back there as you drive off.
“We are everywhere at once and nothing can stop us. We are Death incarnate, walking under long robes of black and chasing down the winds to read from a discourse that may be the last words you’ll hear…”
Be prepared to shake The Devil’s Right Hand.

A MOSAIC NOVEL
A mosaic novel is a novel in which individual chapters or short stories share a common setting or set of characters. The aim is to tell a linear story from beginning to end, with the individual chapters, however, refracting a plurality of viewpoints and styles.
Each book takes place in the tiny island town of Dovetail Cove and is written in a different style or genre and from different viewpoints. Some characters die in the midst of it it all. Some fade in and out like the volume on an old record player. But the intent is to tell one big story by way of each individual tale.
With nine titles in total, you can read each one on its own and in any order — or as a collage, with each informing the next and the previous, and the entire collection.
|DEATHBED, 1971||BLED, 1972||FLED, 1973|
|REDHEAD, 1974||ZED, 1975||UNWED, 1976|
|SHED, 1977||DREAD, 1978||INSTEAD, 1979|
