Victor Gischler’s Next Book
Victor Gischler is a raving, badass genius.
This is what I wrote of him earlier:
Gischler does breathtaking, breakneck plotting of the kind that I don’t think has been done since the heyday of Cornell Woolrich. It’s truly amazing shit that will make you go dizzy! But while Woolrich’s work was always tinged with a sensitive melancholia, Gischler shares Bill Bryson’s knack for going at things with all-out flat-out floor-the-pedal two-fisted gusto. It’s like taking a ride on a roller coaster designed by someone who’s totally and gleefully insane and wants you to share his crackpot state of mind. That Gischler is apparently sober and sane makes his work all the more remarkable!
With this book, Gischler is veering out of the mystery/ crime fiction/ strange noir vein and into what his publisher says is science-fiction. Whatever. After people read this book, I’m certain science-fiction will undergo another redefinition. Gischler cannot be constrained by foolish marketing categories.
The publishing world will shake on its release date: July 8th.
