Lynch: A Gothik Western by award-winning author Nancy A. Collins is now available as an audiobook, narrated by Lucas D. Smith. Cover art by Stephen R. Bissette, artist for Alan Moore’s classic Swamp Thing series. The 3 hour audiobook is available from Amazon, iTunes and Audible.com.
Description: For years Johnny Pearl tried to escape his demons by being a gunslinger. With his killer’s cool and famous pearl-handled pistol, he made a name for himself in the years following the Civil War as an outlaw. But fame has proved hollow, and Johnny finds himself on the outskirts of the Wyoming Territory, on the verge of taking his own life after one gunfight too many, until he finds redemption in the smile of Katie Small Dove.
Within a year he has a wife, a homestead, and a baby on the way, and for the first time in his life Johnny knows true happiness. Of course it can not last.
Johnny Pearl’s idyllic new world is suddenly and irrevocably shattered by the arrival of Captain Antioch Drake, a psychotic cavalry officer determined to avenge the recent massacre at Little Big Horn. Within minutes of Drake’s arrival, the homestead is ablaze, his wife and unborn child cruelly slain, and Johnny left to hang from a cottonwood tree.
Normally, this would be the end of the story – if not for the unexpected appearance of a medicine show wagon, driven by a strange old man called Doc Mirablis, who claims to have once been a friend and colleague of a certain Viktor Von Frankenstein.
The life and times of Johnny Pearl, outlaw, are over, but the story of Lynch, the undead gunslinger, has just begun.
