Born on the prairies, Jason McIntyre eventually lived and worked on Vancouver Island where the vibrant characters and vivid surroundings stayed with him and coalesced into what would become his novel, On The Gathering Storm. Before his time as an editor, writer and communications professional, he spent several years as a graphic designer and commercial artist. Jason is the author of more than two dozen short stories, several novellas and full-length fiction.


Currently, Jason is hard at work on a novel series about The Night Walk Men, based on the novelette of the same name.


His latest full-length novel, THALO BLUE, is out now!


Synopsis:


A young man on the brink of true adulthood, Sebastion Redfield experiences an extreme, life-altering trauma when a trespasser breaks into his home. Sebastion and the psychiatrist assigned to help him recover from the break-in begin to unravel a more disturbing truth about his ordeal: that someone or some thing has been following Sebastian for some time...and he has no idea what kind of power and determination it has to ultimately find him.

What an awesome read, it was a really cool concept and it was complicated and simple at the same time, the author did a really good job of pulling everything together, not your ordinary short story,

I want more! I loved this story and would like to double my star rating. The Night Walk Men is short but don't let the length fool you. The substance packed into this novelette is astounding. This story is dark, yet full of hope; obscure, yet enlightening. As always, Jason McIntyre paints a portrait with his words. His imagery is perfection and will haunt me for some time in ways both wondrous and disconcerting. I hope to see more of The Night Walk Men soon!

I loved this book. The Night Walk Men is seriously one of the most conflicted stories Ive read. It is fast paced magically telling an age old story. It is seriously dark, with a goth/comic book feel to it, yet some of the most beautifully written lines Ive ever had the pleasure of reading. The characters are extremely strong and McIntyre is able to build them within the constraints of a short story. The story makes me itch to draw...with lots of charcoal blacks and greys... I am surprised to be writing this, but The Night Walk Men might be my favorite just because of the contradictions. If its not my favorite its a close second to On the Gathering Storm...Or Thalo Blue. I would suggest reading The NightWalk Men to sample the intricate style and beautiful flow of Jason McIntyre's storytelling voice. He is truly a Master Storyteller with a contemporary edge.

It's so different from anything else I've read. This comes from a strong narrator, a strong voice, and the story has a wide and arching journey though many different, intertwined bits. It's world-building and soul-crushing and the main character's persona is crystallized through each portal we look through.

Weird, eerie, and spellbinding stuff. Well worth reading! A story of great depth and meaning. Good job, Jason.

A cool story being told, complex but amazing. It grabs your attention and keeps it as you yourself want to know the same answers as the person in the book who is listening to what is being said. Well done.

The Night Walk Men was able to hook me in, in one of the strangest ways a book can. It's a novella written for the most part in the 2nd person point of view. This is a MAJOR turn off for me. I don't like being talked at from what I'm reading. But this style works very well for how McIntyre is setting up the story. When some authors will just have a narrator that said you a lot and doesn't actually include the reader in the story, the narrator of The Night Walk Men interacts with the reader. It may not be a reaction to exactly what the reader is thinking, but when that happens it made me think about things again. It brought attention to make things. Getting me hooked on a novella in this POV is a feat in itself. The subject matter was another great element. The world build in this novella was interesting to say the least. The mythology of these Night Walk Men puts the world and how it works into a new perspective. It's not just an entertaining read. The literary element of this novella pushes it passed the realm f pure entertainment. I've read Kro, a short story that is set in the same world as The Night Walk Men, and I've enjoyed that one as well. Where that story grabbed me in more of a "what's this all about" way, this novella answered my questions from Kro while weaving its own intriguing story and then making me want to continue finding out more about the story line to come. There is a new novel out, that The Night Walk Men and Kro are both connected to, called The Devil's Right Hand. There's no doubt in my mind that I will be reading that one. McIntyre has grabbed me as a fan.

I tried. I really did. I made it about halfway before setting this rambling tale down. First off, I wanted to know who the "Night Walk Men" were, whether they were real or mythical or ethereal; it's never explained. Maybe in the second half; and maybe the writer's all-to-obvious foreshadowing and procrastinating and repetition will pay off. But, really, who's going to wait that long? (Which says a lot since this is a short story.) Maybe I'll go back someday and finish it and maybe I'll change this review, but with so much to read, much of it good (and a lot of it crap), I can't justify the waste of time.

I thought this was going to be a thought provoking read but it never got off the ground for me.
