After finishing the first three novels of what would become the Adversary Cycle, F. Paul Wilson began work on Black Wind, the longest, most intricately plotted and intensely researched novel of his career. To his dismay, Black Wind came to be known as his “lost novel.”
Wilson has never feared mixing genres, but with Black Wind, perhaps he went too far. No one knew how to position a novel that was at once a historical family saga spanning the Roaring Twenties to the final days of World War Two, and yet a conspiracy thriller as well, involving alternate history, cultural fanaticism, and wrenchingly dark supernatural horror.
“A stunner!” Dean Koontz
“A superb feast of storytelling.” Ramsey Campbell
“ Wilson’s best . . . .absolutely irresistible!” Robert Bloch
“As irresistible as the sweep of a samurai blade!” Robert Shea
“Sharp and intelligent . . . a genuine page turner.” San Francisco Chronicle
“A fascinating novel . . . as much a character study as a confrontation between East and West.” The Baltimore Sun
Though considered by Wilson to be his best novel, Black Wind has been out of print for more than a decade.
