About the Author

CHARLIE HUSTON is the author of the bestsellers The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death and The Shotgun Rule, as well as the Henry Thompson trilogy, the Joe Pitt casebooks, and several titles for Marvel Comics. He lives with his family in Los Angeles.


“I absolutely loved it. Catchpenny is a brilliant book, full of heart and the language is pitch-perfect. If Elmore Leonard had ever written a fantasy novel, this would be it.”
—Stephen King

“A supernatural thriller set in a mystically bent Los Angeles of dark enchantment, looking-glass larceny, and apocalyptic gaming. . . . A hallucinatory adventure rife with the kind of extreme violence, false leads, and hairbreadth escapes you find in thrillers only amped up with 1980s-style rock lyrics, video game arcana, and a mysterious force dubbed ‘mojo.’ . . . Huston’s writing packs a rock band’s hard-driving propulsion along with an electric guitar’s plaintive lyricism. . . . If mojo is another word for magic, then this novel’s loaded with it.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Dark, soulful, laconic—like the very best of Tim Powers and Jim Thompson, thrown together in an L.A. dive bar after-hours. This is smart fantasy for our times, resonant and real, a love letter to youth and dreams and a biting critique of what the modern world is doing to both. Join down-at-heel, ruined dreamer Sidney Catchpenny and his ghosts on a turbo-charged narrative ride through the mean streets of a weirdly tilted noir, and find out what it means, once more, to care. Spread the word: Charlie Huston is back, and it’s a triumphant return. Until I read Catchpenny, I never realized how much I’d missed his voice.”
—Richard K. Morgan, award-winning author of Altered Carbon

“Gripping and deeply imaginative, Catchpenny has the soul of a classic LA noir and the beating heart of an epic fantasy. Filled with literal magic and an unforgettable cast of characters, this novel pulsates with life and heat, anchored by a lovable anti-hero you can’t help but root for. Much like the eponymous Sid Catchpenny, a thief who can travel through mirrors, this book grabbed me by the collar and pulled me across the threshold of its world. A dazzling joyride of a book.”
—Gina Chung, author of Sea Change and Green Frog
