Hardboiled Magic concerns the work of Mister Lewis. His business card says “Physics Consultant,” but that’s an in-joke. Mister Lewis consults on matters that defy the laws of physics. A curse that’s killing off an artist manager’s musician clients. Ghosts being used for industrial espionage. A cult making blood sacrifices to an ancient god to pay off their student loans.
Like many “normal” consultants, Mister Lewis often does unpleasant work for unpleasant people… but for him, a soul-crushing gig might be literal.
It’s a genre-bender combining elements of contemporary fantasy, horror, hardboiled detectives and an irreverence towards institutions. Think The Night Stalker by way of Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and Art Buchwald
