the King Wong Adventures
A truly well-written, well-crafted novel with something dangerous around every corner.
- Jonas Saul
Author of the Sara Roberts series
Fantasy noir and old-style pulp explode in Hong Kong's seedy, mystical underbelly!
King Wong is the world's only exoterric consultant and expert on the Otherkind, self-appointed to keep the teeming streets of Hong Kong safe from mythical beasts.
Or is he just a guy in an anachronistic hat who sees dragons in grease traps, gods in gutters?
Kiss of the Cockroach Queen:
a King Wong adventure
King Wong, the world’s only exoterric consultant and expert on the Otherkind, is down on his luck with a leaky, keep-you-up-at-night shower and a fold-out bed in grungy Kowloon.
So, when an expensive-looking dame from the swanky Mid-Levels offers him a year’s rent to find her missing shady, financial-wizard husband, he takes the case.
Now, he needs to track down an ancient, Tang-dynasty magic and a buxom, violet-eyed barmaid cult leader in Hong Kong’s seedy, mystical underbelly with only the help of a backpacker girl and whatever allies he can muster from the mists of Chinese myth.
Or is he just making all this mythical stuff up?
The Guru Girl Gambit
King Wong's most dangerous case yet!
A gang of Korean mythical beasts who take their bodies from cast-off belongings move into the streets of Hong Kong just as people are in the thrall of decluttering guru who's convincing everyone to cast-off their belongings.
From the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui to the sewers under Kowloon Walled City to the Jade Palace of Celestial Emperor himself, this thrill ride promises a few laughs between shivers and shudders.
Coming Spring 2021 (because this story is even too much 2020!)
