He's been a novelist since 2009, débuting with the darkly humorous "Johannes Cabal the Necromancer." Since then the sequels "Johannes Cabal the Detective" (2010), "Johannes Cabal: The Fear Institute" (2011), and "The Brothers Cabal" (2014) have also seen print. A new Cabal novel is set for publication in late 2016.

2014 saw the beginning of the "Goon Squad" project, an ongoing story of mismatched superheroes, published in episodes.
His new series of modern horror novels begins with "Carter & Lovecraft," due for publication in October 2015.

Horst Cabal has risen from the dead. Again. Horst, the most affable vampire one is ever likely to me....

Set in an extremely well fleshed out dreamworld, the landscape for the story becomes a character in its own rights, and without the verbosity of description that often sinks books with such attention to stylistic writing. Cabal (a fear hunter) is an anti-hero of sorts who almost reminds me of some bizarre amalgamation of Anne Rice's vampires and Dorian Grey... but with an even sharper tongue. Along with Horst, his said undead relation, the story unfolds brilliantly and with copious amounts of authorial imagination.
With just the right tone of darkness and wit, it moves quickly and remains engaging despite the not overly complicated plot. These characters sparkle, the story exudes cleverness, and it possibly has become my favorite work of fiction so far this year. I have been passing up on this series for some unbeknownst reason, but find it is one of very, very few books I will both reread and do some catching up on with the previous novels.
A strong storyline, excellent characters and Howard's black humour at its absolute and unrivaled best, this is a novel that grips you from the first to the last page. Couldn't fault a single word.
This book is different in that almost half of it is from his brother (the vampires) POV.
Buy the book and you won't be disappointed, can't say more without giving the plot away.
