Haxan

Front Cover
ChiZine, Jun 17, 2014 - Fiction - 250 pages
From the author of Quaternity: “The story of an immortal champion in an American West that never was, and so is all the truer for it” (Richard Parks, author of The Long Look).
 
Thermopylae. Masada. Agincourt. And now, Haxan, New Mexico Territory, circa 1874. Through a sea of time and dust, in places that might never be, or can’t become until something is set right, there are people destined to travel. Forever. Marshal John Marwood is one of these men. Taken from a place he called home, he is sent to fight an eternal war. It never ends, because the storm itself, this unending conflict, makes the world we know a reality. Along with all the other worlds waiting to be born. Or those that were born, but died like a guttering candle in eternal night . . .
 
The first in a series, Haxan is Lonesome Dove meets The Punisher—real, gritty, violent, and blatantly uncompromising.
 
“A mixture of western and urban fantasy, with a cold, moody atmosphere that makes us want to put on a sweater. The author leaves the door open for a sequel, but, given the kind of life Marwood lives, it could be set anywhere, or anytime.” —Booklist
