The Jawbone & the Junkman, book two in the Books of Before & Now series, is now available!

Happy book birthday to Jason Fischer! Lanyard, Tilly, and a new cast of Jesusmen are here to battle another batch of interdimensional monstrosities in The Jawbone & the Junkman.

Fifteen years ago, Papa Lucy fell.

Now, a new threat emerges in the savage world of the Now. Towns burn and survivors flee, lest they be hunted and murdered in the name of a new god.

The Dawn King.

With the Boneman captured and broken, and Jesus and John Leicester missing, Lanyard Everett must lead his crew of doomed Jesusmen into an uncharted and most dangerous land. Guided by a mysterious artifact known only as the Jawbone, they seek justice. If they can't have that, they'll settle for vengeance. But in the shadows, a puppet-master lurks, leading them to believe they have some say in their fate.

If you thought Papa Lucy was a manipulative jerk, wait til you meet the new guy.

The Jawbone & the Junkman is a dark fantasy adventure in the vein of The Dark Tower and Outland Entertainment's own Myst & Labrynths Saga. Publisher's Weekly called it "always original and immensely clever." You should also be on the lookout for celebrity cameos!

If this sounds like something you're into but you're a book behind, here's Papa Lucy & the Boneman, book one in the Books of Before & Now series, for your reading pleasure. And if you'd like to bring the world of the Before to a future gaming session, check out the RPG, Bullets & Bleedthroughs.
