Join us for the launch of Tombstone Blues by Chadwick Ginther, Book Two of the Thunder Road Trilogy on Tuesday, October 15 at 7:00 p.m. at McNally Robinson Grant Park in the Atrium, Winnipeg.
Praise for Book One: "Chadwick Ginther is a major new talent. His stunning debut novel grabs you by the throat and shakes you mercilessly; his prose is vivid and sharp and his settings are gritty and terrifyingly real. This is serious fantasy for grownups."
—Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Triggers
After beating back the might of Surtur, Ted Callan is getting used to his immortal powers. The man who once would stop at nothing to rid himself of his tattoos and their power might even be said to be enjoying his new-found abilities. However, not everyone is happy the greatness of the Valhalla has risen from the ashes of Ragnarök. With every crash of Mjölnir, Thor, former God of Thunder, rages amongst the undead of the underworld. With Ted’s call to the honoured dead a crack is opened between our world and the underworld. Now Thor’s back and coming for his hammer. If he gets it, it might just be the beginning of hell on earth.
