  • "An urban fantasy, pacy, funny and compelling to the
    last page."

    "I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Great premises,
    like able characters with good solid writing and
    plot. More soon please! The further adventures of
    the immortal medic would make a great series.
    Prequels about other places and times offer all
    kinds of story lines."

  • "Broken Crossroads delivers very strong fantasy
    in the vein of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser. The
    characters are believable and interesting, the
    dialogue feels natural. The book flows very well,
    and is a quick read without shortchanging the reader.
    Looking forward to the next in the series."

  • "Awesome short story by Patrick Leclerc. Has
    all the things I loved from Out of Nowhere but
    with the main character thrown into a completely
    different setting. The Napoleonic Wars.
    Great action. Great dialogue. Great stuff."

Welcome to

Ink & Bourbon


By Author Patrick LeClerc

This site is a central directory for the writings of a jaded, nigh unemployable paramedic.

In the lulls between saving lives and making a difference on ambulance shifts, (and sometimes in the lulls between employment at various private ambulance companies) he has been known to write speculative fiction.

Sometimes this is speculation about fantastic worlds, or the future of humanity. Sometimes it's just speculating about the chances the bartender will forget his face and start serving him again.

Can he untangle this mystery and outwit his latest foes? Or is his only hope of safety to give up his hard won and precious place in the world and return to a bleak and lonely fugitive existence?

Spitting Image is a tense, twisting adventure where Sean must confront both deadly enemies and the consequences of his own decisions on what is worth defending.
