I recently read “The Crystal Void” by John Houlihan.
This was a joy to read. If George MacDonald Fraser’s Harry Flashman series had an illegitimate child with HP Lovecraft’s Cthulhu series, this would be it.
The main character, Captain d’Bois, relates his adventures in first person in an outrageous French accent and a sense of bombast and humor that is part Commander McBragg and part Pepe LePew.
There is action, horror and humor throughout.
Sit back and enjoy this Napoleonic Mythos mashup.
