The Night Walk Men, Book 1 - Preview an Excerpt

The Night Walk Men is a short novella that acts as a prologue to an as-yet unfinished and much longer work. I released the prologue last year and, since October of 2010, it's been downloaded by over 50,000 readers. I took that as my cue to keep working on this universe and allow us to get better acquainted with Sperro, Fallow and the rest of the Night Walk Men.

So I'm working on Book One of the Night Walk Men. It's a long-ish saga. At least, it will be, if the first book is popular enough to warrant me writing the second one and the third and so on. In our preview today, we meet Donovan Lo, a Chinese-Canadian who mysteriously lives alone in a half-empty apartment building in a seedier neighborhood of downtown Vancouver. He's just heard a car door slam and he's up after a restless night. Donnie is sure someone's trying to find him and he's not sleeping well as a result.

This excerpt will remain on the site until the end of the week. Then it'll come down. If visitors like this kind of preview, I'll do more as work on the novel continues. Thanks for reading!

EDIT, Saturday, October 15, 2011

Thanks for reading, everyone! This sneak peek is over for now. Have a great evening!


  1. always, Mr. McIntyre, you are a dreadful tease with this story! Im seriously wanting to know more. How much longer must we wait?
    Kidding (kind of) I love this little taste of my favorite story. Thank you so much for sharing with us.

  2. Well, Kimba, since our narrator, Sperro is himself a dreadful tease I thought I would mirror that behavior and give a few agonizing snapshots of this big story.

    How long do we have to wait? Well, I'll maybe try to do another tease in a week or two.

    But you want to know how long until the whole book is released, don't you? I'm thinking spring of 2012 but I can't commit to a specific date until I have the whole thing reasonably close to complete.

  3. I always knew you were a tease, J.

  4. My second grade teacher said the exact same thing.
