I’ve been evangelising Matt Wallace’s Sin Du Jour series, short novels about a catering company that deals with supernatural clients, for a while now. So with the release this week of the penultimate episode in the seven-book series, it seems like a good time to give them yet another recommendation.
The books combine action-movie heroics, supernatural horror, office drama and food porn into short but sumptuous feasts. The titular Sin Du Jour is a catering company, headed by retired celebrity chef Bronko Luck, whose chief clients include supernatural monstrosities like demons, fairies and Hollywood producers. As a reader you come for the frequently hilarious comedy and over-the-top action, but you stay for the dramatic personal lives of the deeply weird and entertaining ensemble cast.
Oh, and I almost forgot – to celebrate the release of his book, the author posted an interpretive dance video which is, I think, a woefully underexplored book marketing technique. Check it out! Sweet moves!
