About the Author

BRYAN CAMP is a graduate of the Clarion West Writer's Workshop and the University of New Orleans's MFA program. His first novel, The City of Lost Fortunes, earned starred reviews in Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, and Library Journal, and was named one of the best books of the year by Library Journal.

Reviews

"Camp's prose is suspenseful and rich with feeling, highlighting an incredible heroine. VERDICT: Full of magic and numerous mythologies but still tied to the lush New Orleans setting, this Crescent City is one readers will not want to leave."
--Library Journal, starred review

"Savory . . . Renai's second outing is as raucous as her first, and the magic is just as double-edged and slippery . . . Renai is a real standout of a heroine, a powerful African-American woman cutting through bad or desperate situations in living and dead realms of increasing chaos, armed with snark, courage, and a storm of magic drawn from deep within her. This will be a feast for all lovers of urban and dark fantasy." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The second Crescent City book (after The City of Lost Fortunes, 2018) once again displays Camp's ability to weave different mythological beliefs in fascinating ways. Readers will relate to Renai as she learns her most trusted guides are unreliable in this fast-paced urban fantasy." --Booklist, starred review

"In this second installment of his Crescent City urban fantasy series, Camp raises the stakes and broadens the scope of his alternate world...the richness and inventiveness of Camp's vision and the vivacity, warmth, and compassion of his leading woman keep you alert to whatever's happening next. As with the real New Orleans, once you leave this creepier but just as colorful variant, you'll be eager to go back." --Kirkus Reviews

"What a joy it is to return to Bryan Camp's weird, dark, vivid, gorgeous, magical New Orleans. Highly recommended!" --Sam J. Miller, award-winning author of Blackfish City

"The magic and mythological heft of Bryan Camp's debut doesn't lose any momentum in Gather the Fortunes. He captures the essence and resilience of a still healing New Orleans by digging into the parts of a city too often ignored by the well-to-do and powerful. If The City of Lost Fortunes was a love letter to New Orleans then its next installment is an Earl King blue's song." --Brent Lambert, editor at FIYAH Magazine
