Just Another Judgment Day (#9)

Previous: The Unnatural Inquirer | Next: The Good, The Bad, and The Uncanny

I’m John Taylor. I work as a PI out of the Nightside, that secret centre of London where clocks always read three A.M., where terrible things happen with predictable regularity, and where the always-dark streets are full of people partying like Judgement Day will never come.

Now it may have arrived. God’s own enforcer, the righteous engine of destruction known as the Walking Man, has come to the Nightside. He’s a being whose sole purpose is the elimination of the wicked and the guilty—and given the nature of the Nightside, there’s a good chance that once he gets started, he’ll just keep on until there’s no-one left.

So the Authorities have hired me to stop him. Legend has it that he can’t be killed. I’m very much hoping that the legend isn’t true…


“Yet another roller-coaster ride through the dark fantasy landscape of the nightside […] Certain to please Green’s legions of fans.


“The Nightside is perhaps my favorite of all those invented magical neighborhoods that have spawned in one series or another, and Tayor is fast becoming one of my favorite private eyes.”

Critical Mass

“Fans of urban noir will want to discover this series if they have not already done so.”

Monsters & Critics

“Bloody, brutal, stylized, extremely over-the-top, wildly inventive and always entertaining, the Nightside series has become a guilty pleasure, the sort of series that hits a great many of my “Awesome Buttons.” The Nightside is one of a kind.”
