“Sergio Leone would have killed to film FISTFUL OF REEFER. Harry Turtledove would admire the way history has been skewed. Others will love the notion of the Lost DMB Files. The estimable Mr. Brown has really latched onto something here.” — Mike Resnick
“Forget emergency landing procedures. When reading Twitch and Die! all one can do is hold on for dear life.”
Welcome to the pulp world of the Lost DMB Files
The Lost DMB Files (always interject a “Viva this!”) delivers a surge equivalent to a cocktail of one part serotonin, two parts adrenaline, with a dash of grenadine served over ice. It scratches the urge primeval. Combining the readability and smooth consumption of a beach house page-turner with the kick to the face of a summer blockbuster movie, Reeferpunk entertains without dumbing down.
Twitch and Die! (lost file #26)
The Company mining town of Thurber, Texas has fallen off the map. Some want to keep it that way. Others seek the truth. But its plague-infected residents have a mind of their own.
“Disguised as double-fisted pulp fiction, the Lost DMB Files resurrect a forgotten history. The life’s work of author David Mark Brown, mysteriously disappeared in the 1930’s, has only recently taken on new life surrounding the controversy that these “Lost” files are more than mere fiction. Let the reader decide for her or himself.” ~ Professor Jim Buckner, Dept. Geology University of Texicas, Austin
Two populist Texan folk-heros, Chancho Villarreal and James Starr, embark on a mission of political endorsement, but what they find is a hill country rife with fear and rumor. A so-called Angel of Death is executing individuals infected by a terrible plague, and the company mining town at the epicenter has gone dark.
It’s up to Chancho to navigate a world of shifting allegiances while uncovering the truth about a plague and its infected who refuse to die quietly.
