Praise for WATT O'HUGH AND THE INNOCENT DEAD

“Touching tragedy, dead-pan comedy and a time-roaming cowboy? Part three of Drachman’s epic fantasy series is indeed fantastic!” ―David David Katzman, award-winning author of A Greater Monster (Bedhead Books)

“[An] engaging tale of Western science fiction and amazing fantasy … Fast-paced, energetic and fun; a dime novel for modern intellectuals.” ―Kirkus Reviews

"The third entry in Drachman'sseries (after Watt O'Hugh Underground) dives right into a complex world of time travel, lost love, faith, war, and the afterlife. The titularRoamer -- a time traveler with cowboy flavor -- is hoodwinked into getting good and dead. He wakes up in the Hell of the Innocent Dead, a place of Chinese myth devoted to those unjustly dead whose murderers still walk free.... VERDICT: Genre mashup devotees should get some good laughs and thrills from this Western/adventure/sf/fantasy blend." ―Nicole Steeves, Library Journal


On the morning of Wednesday, September 24, 1879, I awoke in a prison in Montana.

I did not imagine that evening might find me sprawled beneath a great and ferocious sand crab on a rancid beach, deep in the Hell of the Innocent Dead.

But that is indeed where I wound up.

The moral, if there is one: never plan your day too inflexibly.

THE WAIT IS OVER: THE CLASSIC ADVENTURE CONCLUDES....

In this, the final book of the trilogy, Watt O'Hugh, the dead/not-dead, time Roaming Western gunman, travels the length and breadth of the sixth level of Hell, recruiting a shadowy army that might storm the borders of the Underworld, free humanity and the inscapes from the clutches of the Falsturm and his Sidonian hordes, and stave off the Coming Storm.

He'll need a little luck.

WATT O'HUGH AND THE INNOCENT DEAD BY STEVEN S. DRACHMAN EXCERPT

The bar in Conconully was naught but a desolate store room, abandoned with the change in the economy, and not yet rescued by the tourists who would descend a few years henceforward. A few windows let in the air and the starlight. Someone had lugged a makeshift bar from town, and the music was lo-fi, a couple of acoustic guitars, a sax, a flute. A lot of Roamers cannot tolerate amplification. The party was crowded, but I realized quickly that the number of bodies grew and collapsed, like a human lung. The room, a blur — partyers shifted as I watched; the past and the future metamorphosed, smeared in space. How many Roamers would it take to change a light bulb? An infinite number, because the past and the future is always changing ‘round them.

A Time Travel Novel full of spunk.

I recommend reading the first 2 books of this story before you dive into the third installment. Quirky, interesting time jumps, and out of this time characters. Go on an interesting Journey with Watt, and his fellow comrades as they take on the levels of Hell....and try to keep their humanity.
