About the Author
Praise For Idle Ingredients: A Sin du Jour Affair…
Praise for Pride's Spell —
"Matt Wallace is now three books in to his Sin du Jour series and they really do just keep getting better and better... [and they] are starting to figure out what sort of meal they want to be, which is filling and fun." —Locus
"A smart, action-packed, hilariously absurdist romp." —SF Bluestocking
Praise for Lustlocked —
"Magic and humor combine with delicious results in this unusual, wildly fun novella." - Publishers Weekly starred review
"This series continues to combine magic, food, and a hefty scoop of humor." —Library Journal
Praise for Envy of Angels —
"No one makes me think, 'Dammit, I should have thought of that!' like Matt Wallace. The Sin du Jour series is something I read with equal amounts of envy and delight." — Mur Lafferty, Campbell Award winning author of The Shambling Guide to New York City
"Matt Wallace tells a raucous, riotous tale of culinary madness — a jaw-dropping horror-fantasy restauranteur Thunderdome that makes the 'monkey brain' scene in Temple of Doom look like something you'd see on Nickelodeon. It's like I dropped a heroic dose of acid and turned on the Food Network for eight hours. It's funny and demented and sticks in you like a pinbone. Matt Wallace writes like someone just jammed a needle full of adrenaline in his heart — and then, in yours. From this point forward, I'll read anything this guy writes." — Chuck Wendig, author of Blackbirds and Zer0es
"Envy of Angels is one of the most original urban fantasies I've read in a damn long time. Angels, demons and the New York restaurant scene. It doesn't get any weirder than this. Matt Wallace is an author to watch." — Stephen Blackmoore, author of Dead Things and Broken Souls
"Envy of Angels is exactly the breath of fresh air I didn't know I needed: darkly funny, sweepingly inventive, and just plain fun to read. Every time I thought I got the hang of this book, the next turn took me someplace even more breathtakingly weird and wonderful. Buy it. DO IT NOW. It's the only way we can force him to write a dozen more of these!" — Andrea Phillips, author of Revision
