THE ARMAGEDDON RAG is back! Here is a literary trip like no other-part murder mystery, part psychedelic archive, with the pulse of rock 'n' roll driving the pace. THE ARMAGEDDON RAG follows journalist Sandy Blair as he investigates the bizarre and brutal murder of a rock promoter who made millions with his '60s band, the Nazgul. Sandy's search leads him back to his own past-and into a nightmare of rage, anarchy, and hope. Revisiting old friends and haunts, he discovers that the pent-up passions of a generation are exploding in a deadly revolution. And when a charismatic new leader brings the Nazgul back to life, they return with a mind-blowing, mind-bending requiem for the age. A comic, nostalgic thriller with brilliant storytelling at every turn, this is a must-read for anyone who prizes innovative fiction.

display_description One-time underground journalist Sandy Blair has come a long way from his radical roots in the '60s--until something unexpectedly draws him back: the bizarre and brutal murder of a rock promoter who made millions with the '60s band the Nazgûl. Now, as Sandy sets out to investigate the crime, he finds himself drawn back into his own past--a magical mystery tour of the pent-up passions of his generation. For a new messiah has resurrected the Nazgûl and the mad new beat may be more than anyone bargained for--a requiem of demonism, mind control, and death, whose apocalyptic tune only Sandy may be able to change in time.--From publisher description.
