Following Wolves, a Doc Talos adult-pulp re-imagining of the classic Doc Savage novel Brand of the Werewolf, comes the next in the series of daring pastiche novels, Fear. Based on the 1934 pulp classic Fear Cay, the new book will be releasing on November 21st!
Pre-orders for Fear are now being accepted at a significant discount off cover price. Like all Doc Talos novels, the book is filled with dozens of paintings by visionary artist Iason Ragnar Bellerophon, and is being published in a deluxe paperback edition with the artwork in lush full color. After release this book will retail for $30, but is available for pre-order at $20 plus shipping.
Over the bones of the original pulp tale of a Fountain of Youth scheme and the hunt for it on a mysterious, deadly cay in the Caribbean, comes the story of a bizarre gang called the Dead Sun Mob, who involve Doc Talos, his five aides, and his cousin Rickie in an intense life-and-death conflict. A woman born in 1874 who looks a fraction of her age; a drug kingpin who can murder by intimate touch; and an anarchistic outlaw who bears a strange resemblance to a fictional jungle lord unleash a death-erotic nightmare, beginning in Depression-era Miami and New York, and ending at Terror Cay.
Readers looking for an innovative New Pulp experience will find it in spades with Fear. In addition to the pulp pastiche, the novel follows patterns laid down in mythic literature, and at the same time channels concepts pioneered by authors William Burroughs and Philip José Farmer with their creations of the Nova Mob and the Jungle Rot Kid. The action is dizzying, sensual, violent and powerful.
