Gun Monkeys

Charlie Swift just pumped three . 38 caliber bullets into a dead polar bear in his taxidermist girlfriend’s garage. But he s a gun monkey, and no one can blame him for having an itchy trigger finger. Ever since he drove down the Florida Turnpike with a headless body in the trunk of a Chrysler, then took down four cops, Charlie s been running hard through the sprawling sleaze of central Florida. And to make matters worse, he s holding on to some crooked paperwork that a lot of people would like to take off his hands. Now, with his boss disappeared and his friends dropping like flies, Charlie has got his work cut out just to survive. If he wants to keep the money and get the girl too, he s really going to have to go ape…

Nominated for the Edgar Award for Best First Novel, Gun Monkeys is a fast, furious collage of wit and wise guys, violence and thrills and a full throttle run through the dark side of the Sunshine State.

The Pistol Poets

The Edgar nominated author of Gun Monkeys is back with a thrill a minute suspense novel that mixes crime and academia with hilarious results. Here Victor Gischler draws us into a wild and wicked world, where tenured professors are busy burying bodies, cash up front P.I.’s hunt for missing coeds and one desperate street tough has to decide which he d rather be: a live poet or a dead criminal.

An unlucky grad student just got himself killed in a robbery gone bad. And as lowly drug lieutenant Harold Jenks races with the killer out of the alley, a light goes off in his head: He ll steal the dead kid s identity. Now Jenks, who once lorded it over seven square blocks in East St. Louis, is headed due west. With a . 32 in his pocket, a 9mm Glock taped across his back, and a rap sheet nearly as long as Finnegans Wake, he s cruising the halls of academia as Eastern Oklahoma U s newest grad student, looking for action and hoping he can stay one couplet ahead of his violent past.

While this new bad boy on campus makes mincemeat of his metaphors, across campus visiting professor Jay Morgan has a more pressing problem: What to do about the dead coed in his bed. The professor s no killer, but try telling that to private eye Deke Stubbs. With the professor on the lam and Stubbs hot on his trail, more trouble blows into town. Now, as St. Louis drug boss Red Zach and his minions converge on Fumbee, Oklahoma, looking for a consignment of missing cocaine, the bullets start flying faster than the zingers at a faculty hate fest. For Morgan and Jenks, now desperate fugitives from poetic justice, survival means learning new skills and learning fast. Because if they find out they re bottom of the class, that means they re already dead.

Featuring the sleaziest, sorriest, and most captivating group of criminal lowlifes, sexed up academics, poets, and rappers ever to collide in one crime novel, The Pistol Poets speeds deliriously to its electrifying payoff.

From the Hardcover edition.

Suicide Squeeze

The Edgar Award nominated author of Gun Monkeys delivers an adrenaline rush of a novel that features a special appearance by Joe DiMaggio.

The high spot of Teddy Folger’s life was the day in 1954 that he got an autographed baseball card from Joe DiMaggio himself. It’s been downhill ever since. Which is why he just unloaded his freeloading wife and torched his own comic book store in one of the stupidest insurance scams in history. Enter Conner Samson. The down on his luck repo man has just been hired to repossess Teddy’s boat. Little does he know there’s a baseball card on board that some men are willing to kill for. Thus begins a rip roaring cross country odyssey and with bodies piling up, the squeeze is on for the penultimate piece of Americana. And Conner will be lucky if he ends up back where he started: broke and still breathing.

From the Hardcover edition.

Shotgun Opera

Mike Foley can never forget the night he tagged along with his brother on a job for the mob that ended in a hail of bullets. Now his brother is dead, Mike’s making wine in Oklahoma, and life is almost as good as it gets when you ve been hiding out for forty years. Until his past comes calling.

Mike s nephew Andrew needs to disappear, and he needs to do it yesterday. Hanging with the wrong kind of friends, he s seen something he shouldn t have, and now he s running for his life with an assassin on his trail. The consummate professional hit woman, Nikki Enders is the most lethal of a deadly sisterhood. And Andrew Foley is next on her extermination list. Unless Uncle Mike can stop her. As kill teams descend on Foley s farm, one pissed off ex tough guy is about to take a final, all or nothing stand with shotguns blazing…

Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse

Mortimer Tate was a recently divorced insurance salesman when he holed up in a cave on top of a mountain in Tennessee and rode out the end of the world. Go Go Girls of the Apocalypse begins nine years later, when he emerges into a bizarre landscape filled with hollow reminders of an America that no longer exists. The highways are lined with abandoned automobiles; electricity is generated by indentured servants pedaling stationary bicycles. What little civilization remains revolves around Joey Armageddon’s Sassy A Go Go strip clubs, where the beer is cold, the lap dancers are hot, and the bouncers are armed with M16s. Accompanied by his cowboy sidekick Buffalo Bill, the gorgeous stripper Sheila, and the mountain man Ted, Mortimer journeys to the lost city of Atlanta and a showdown that might determine the fate of humanity.

Vampire a Go-Go


Victor Gischler is a master of the class act literary spoof, and his work has drawn comparison to that of Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, and Thomas Pynchon. Now, Gischler turns his attention to werewolves, alchemists, ghosts, witches, and gun toting Jesuit priests in Vampire a Go Go, a hilarious romp of spooky, Gothic entertainment. Narrated by a ghost whose spirit is chained to a mysterious castle in Prague, Gischler’s latest is full of twists and surprises that will have readers screaming and laughing for more.

The Deputy

Coyote Crossing is a dusty little sh thole town in western Oklahoma. A sleepy little pit stop for truckers, not a lot going on. So a dead body in the middle of the street at midnight is quite an event. The chief of police wants all hands on deck, so he calls Toby Sawyer to come babysit the body. Toby doesn t have a lot going for him. Twenty five, a couple of years of junior college, married to a girl he got pregnant and living in a trailer on the edge of town. He’s working part time for the police department, hoping the budget comes through and they can put him on full time, so he can get health benefits. His wife is a waitress at a little crap diner near the railroad tracks. When he gets the call about the dead body, he pins his tin star to his Weezer t shirt, slips into a pair of sweatpants and grabs his revolver. Victor Gischler is the author of five novels, including Gun Monkeys, Shotgun Opera, and Go Go Girls of the Apocalypse.’ s olid noir from Gischler.’ Publishers Weekly’Make no mistake: this sh t is just as fast and funny as what we ve come to expect from the man who gave us such classics as Pistol Poets and Shotgun Opera; it s just that this time out it hurts more, the characters dig under a couple more layers of your skin. The Deputy is Victor Gischler s finest book to date, and you better f cking believe that s f cking saying something.’ BSC Reviews
