There is trouble facing Blackpool.
Somebody wants to turn it into a seedy tacky and depraved town.
In Jack Barrow‘s adventure novel “The Hidden Masters and the Unspeakable Evil,” the Three Hidden Masters (two from Hemel Hempstead and one from Bricket Wood) must determine if a dark presence from the other side has risen up to conquer Britain’s northern holiday resorts.
And they need to find out before it’s too late.
But not to worry, for at our heroes’ disposal are a deep knowledge of occult practices. And a considerable quantity of cheap dark rum.
But they also need to save the universe by Sunday evening because they have to be back at work on Monday

Listen to Jack Barrow
After our interview, I was delighted to see that Jack had blogged about it.
The experience was a little nerve-wracking but not as bad as I might have imagined. (As the experience recedes I suspect I’m forgetting the worst of it.)
Naturally I feel I answered some of the questions better than others but one question sticks in my mind.
The concerning question was how the main characters, the very Hidden Masters described in the title, got to be the people they were…
Jack, you need not have worried. I found your answer satisfying and thoughtful – and wholly consistent with the characters and the book.
The review I allude to in this interview, that compares Jack Barrow – very favorably – with Douglas Adams, Robert Rankin, and Hunter S. Thompson was written by Elizabeth A. White.
