Mix Creator/MRJames, Creator/HPLovecraft, psycho-sexual themes, a heavy dose of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Statement_of_Randolph_Carter The Statement of Randolph Carter]], and what do you get? A series of short stories [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin chronicling the necromantic mysteries]] of one Kyle Murchison Booth. Taking place in an ambiguous [[WordOfGod between the wars]] setting in an equally ambiguous American city, this series by SarahMonette follows the adventures of Booth (just Booth. No one calls him ''Kyle''), as he relates his supernatural mishaps in anxious first person. Read along and watch the world fall apart all around him.
