Interviews/Guest Posts


For Graveyard Mind

“Ginther brings the paranormal to Manitoba in this supernatural thriller, which is sure to delight lovers of gritty urban fantasy. . . . [T]his series launch should appeal to fans of the hard-boiled fantasy novels of Richard Kadrey and Simon R. Green.”
Publishers Weekly

“With old friends lost and new associates added, and a few threads still unraveled at story’s finish, it may be expected those loose ends will lead into other storylines and be tied together in future novels. If this is the case, the sequel to Graveyard Mind and the further adventures of Winter, et al, will be eagerly awaited.”
New York Journal of Books

For Thunder Road

Thunder Road is a fast-paced, thoughtful novel, and news that it’s the first in a trilogy is welcome indeed.”
Quill & Quire

“Without a trace of antagonistic empires, vast armies, or the schemes of eldritch sorcery . . . Ginther write[s] fantasy that resonates the deepest when it strikes close to home.”
Locus Magazine

For Tombstone Blues

“The pitfalls facing the middle volumes of trilogies are many. They’ve got to deliver the same pleasures as the opening volume without feeling like a retread, and they have to point the way forward without seeming like filler that’s just marking time until we get to the main attraction. I’m pleased to report that Tombstone Blues, Chadwick Ginther’s follow-up to the Aurora-nominated Thunder Road, manages to avoid those traps.”
Canadian Science Fiction Review

For Too Far Gone

“. . . Real, gritty, and bursting with action as well as fantastic characters, Too Far Gone is a triumph!”
—Julie E. Czerneda, author of the Clan Chronicles series

“A master fantasy/noir storyteller . . . a deliciously destructive prairie romp.”
The Winnipeg Free Press
