That’s what the former D Magazine scribe says on his webpage this morning. The deal with publisher Harper Collins was struck thanks to his manuscript for the first volume, The Merchant Princes: A Far Ranger Adventure. But adventure doesn’t really capture the wildly unhinged plot:
It’s a very different 1928. . . .The Nazis have hatched a plot to raise a legion of undead soldiers. An anti-Nazi faction within the Third Reich recruits a young Prussian doctor, Dr. Kurt von Deitel, to find help in the West to stop this devious plan. Enter Sean Fox Rucker and Jesus D’Anconia Lago, two Great War veterans and freelance pilots who are reluctantly pulled into the quest. They are joined by a brash Greek merchant, a brilliant Jewish cowboy, and the woman who once broke Rucker’s heart. The heroes race against Nazi clockwork assassins, a charismatic commando, a telekinetic sadist, and transgenic man-beasts known as wehr-wolves.
Garrison’s novel aims to capture “the unapologetic adventure, excitement and suspense of the classic pulp fiction of the 1930s and 1940s.”
It’s got Nazis, zombies, cowboys, robots and airships. Isn’t that everything you want in a book?
Well, yes, come to think of it. Still, a hearty congrats are in order.
