Frank Tuttle lives and writes in the perpetually humid wilderness of North Mississippi. Frank tried to be a proper Southern author and write about pickups and hound dogs, but trolls and magic kept creeping into his stories, so Frank is a fantasy author. Although hounds do make occasional appearances in his fiction. Most of the books you'll see here are part of the Markhat series, which features a hard-boiled, wise-cracking detective in a world where magic works. Here are the titles, and the order I suggest for readers:* The Cadaver Client* The Mister Trophy* Dead Man's Rain* NOTE: All the above are included in the print anthology 'The Markhat Files.'* Hold the Dark* The Banshee's Walk* The Broken Bell * Brown River Queen* The Five Faces * The Darker Carnival (available April 2015)I also have a Young Adult series!* Saving the Sammi (novella)* All the Paths of Shadow (novel)* All the Turns of Light (novel)All the Paths of Shadow and All the Turns of Light are part of a planned 4 book series (the Paths of Shadow series). But each book stands alone! I don't write cliff-hanger endings. You have my word on that.Finally, anthologies of my short stories (most published in print in the 1990s) are also available here on Amazon.* Wistril Compleat* On the Road* The Far Corners* Passing the Narrows* The New Author's Guide to WritingThe University of Mississippi did a documentary on Frank.

Markhat has certainly changed since I last encountered him as a hard-luck Finder in The Mister Trophy. In The Darker Carnival, the ninth in the series, Markhat is married, secretary’d, and given that he has a childlike banshee under his roof, rather harried. He’s so thoroughly powered up that when t...

This is the sequel to one of my favorite fantasy novels of the last few years, All the Paths of Shadow by Frank Tuttle (my review here). Unfortunately I didn’t like it as much as the first book. The story continues the adventures of Meralda, the Royal mage of Tirlin, and her faithful sidekick Mug, a...

Markhat is a Finder, charged with the post-war task of tracking down sons and fathers gone suddenly missing when an outbreak of peace left the army abandoned where they stood. But now it’s ten years on after the war, and about all he’s finding is trouble.. Short review: This is novella length, an...
want a real life adventure? come to Australia we have spiders bigger than your hand.
Ugh i hate writing a review when its been a while. I'll give it a go and hope for the best. So All the Paths Of Shadow is an interesting book. Its set in a different world to what we live in but not by much, there are quite a few similarities, For one its kind of set in a relaxed Victorian era, yo...
