Formed during the reign of Elizabeth I, the post of the Royal Occultist was created to safeguard the British Empire against threats occult, otherworldly, infernal and divine.
It is now 1920, and the title and offices have fallen to Charles St. Cyprian. Accompanied by his apprentice Ebe Gallowglass, they defend the battered empire from the forces of darkness.
In the wake of a séance gone wrong, a monstrous killer is summoned from the depths of nightmare by a deadly murder-cult. The entity hunts its prey with inhuman tenacity even as its worshippers stop at nothing to bring the entity into its full power.
It’s up to St. Cyprian and Gallowglass to stop the bloodthirsty horror before another notch is added to its gory tally, but will they become the next victims of the horror disguised as London’s most famous killer?

The Whitechapel Demon, the first book in ‘The Adventures of the Royal Occultist’, was published in 2013 by Emby Press. It is available both in trade paperback and electronic format from Amazon.com, Smashwords, Barnesandnoble.com and other online retailers. For a free PDF preview of the the first three chapters, click HERE.
The Whitechapel Demon is  the first entry in an ongoing series, featuring Charles St. Cyprian, the Royal Occultist, and his assistant, Ebe Gallowglass, as they battle the forces of evil on behalf of the British Empire.
The book serves as an introduction to the world of the Royal Occultist as well as delivering an exciting adventure for new readers and old fans alike to enjoy.

What the reviews are saying:

…manages to balance the dark and gruesome with the light and witty.


I honestly look forward to the next book.


The book abounds in period detail and atmosphere and has a plot that moves the story along at a relentless pace.


A great read and a must buy.

The Last Redoubt from The Night Lands by William Hope Hodgson.

The Last Redoubt makes a stealth cameo in Jade Suit of Death, the sequel to The Whitechapel Demon. Given that Hodgson’s work was a formative influence on the Royal Occultist series, I thought it was only appropriate.
