D. Harlan Wilson is really making me look bad by recently releasing not one, but two books in the past few months. Here are the details on his most recent fiction release, Peckinpah: An Ultraviolent Romance:
AUTHOR: D. Harlan Wilson
PUBLISHER: Shroud Publishing
DATE OF PUBLICATION: August 2009
ISBN (PB): 978-098198-942-6
Life in Dreamfield, Indiana, is a daily harangue of pigs, cornfields, pigs, fast food joints, pigs, Dollar Stores, motorcycles, pigs, and good old-fashioned Amerikan redneckery. The decidedly estranged yet complacent occupants of this proverbial smalltown go about their business like geriatrics in a casino … until their business is interrupted by a sinister gang of outsiders. Angry, slick-talking, and ultraviolent to the core, Samson Thataway and the Fuming Garcias commit art-for-art’s-sake in the form of hideous, unmotivated serial killings. When an unsuspecting everyman’s wife is murdered by the throng, it is up to Felix Soandso to avenge her death and return Dreamfield to its natural state of absurdity.
“A bludgeoning celluloid rush of language and ideas served from an action-painter’s bucket of fluorescent spatter, D. Harlan Wilson’sPeckinpah is an incendiary gem and very probably the most extraordinary new novel you will read this year.” ALAN MOORE, author of Watchmen, V for Vendetta and From Hell
