I’m working on a new book with the wicked talented and wicked professional Vic Malhotra.
It’s called “Fort Ripley and the Gangsters of Kalamazoo” and you can watch our creative process unfold before your very eyes on our production tumblr timetravelandtommyguns.tumblr.com
The url says it all.
It’s a story which takes place on the eve of prohibition, with time traveler Fort Ripley getting involved with the notorious and gruesome Purple Gang of Detroit. He enlists the aid of a medium, a seemingly-immortal escape artist, and the legendary Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch: A. William Underwood, in his quest to retrieve an ancient artifact and return to his own time! Time travel and tommy guns! Prohibition and the Paranormal! Moonshine and Mediums! Gangsters and the Gruesome! Love and Lovecraft! Weirdness in the time of Woodrow Wilson! And How!
The blog will feature artwork as it is drawn as well as images and articles unearthed during our research for the project.
Look for “Fort Ripley and the Gangsters of Kalamazoo” to debut on the web in early ’11.
