My thoughts of Terrorlord by Guido Henkel

Terrorlord (Jason Dark - Ghost Hunter)Terrorlord by Guido Henkel

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another fine “Jason Dark” novella by Guido Henkel.

I can’t help but think of the old gothic Hammer films of my ill spent youth, when reading something by Henkel. Henkel had to have been influenced by that old production company. In this novella, all hell is breaking loose and Jason Dark can’t stop it.

An old adversary of Jason Dark, the Terrorlord, returns with his plan to open the “Seven Gates of Hell.” The Terrorlord has developed a chess-like strategy to destroy mankind and Dark’s friends must take up the battle.

I enjoyed seeing more of the character Siu Lin in this novella. The story is a dark, fast-paced romp through the gaslit streets of London.

I highly recommend it.

By the way, extra points for naming the cabbie Barry!

Oh, you can read a “Jason Dark” story in an upcoming issue (issue 302) of Fangoria. I tried to find an old picture of me in my 20’s reading a Fangoria magazine. Im sure that I will find it — now that I don’t need it. At any rate,a “Jason Dark” story will make for a great excuse to pick up a copy of Fangoria again.
