About the Book

Our first freebie is Infernal Drums, written by Anthony Wright. This was our first print title when we began publishing in the spring of 2011 and our only title to date that is a trade paperback. Our goal is to continue to draw readers to this beautiful, magnificent book that was given a very nice blurb by renowned William Hjortsberg, author and screenwriter of Falling Angel (Angel Heart, starring Robert De Niro and Micky Rourke) and Legend (starring Tom Cruise, Mia Sara, and Tim Curry). Both Anthony and I have tried to get this book to Johnny Depp, because we think he’d fall in love with it. We’re not being vain. I just know a good writer when I see one, and Anthony is both wonderful and not known about enough. Yet. We’re trying to change that with the offering of his book free, a chapter a time. So please spread the word to all your friends.

Infernal Drums explores the spiritual awakening of protagonist Jonah Everman, who regards himself as a writer who drifts, but is really a drifter who writes. Journeying to Mexico, he runs afoul of the law and pays out big to avoid jail. He then heads to the capital where he finds a few kindred spirits, newspaper work, and trouble in spades. Forging an unholy alliance with occult forces, Jonah’s moral destruction seems assured. Or is it?

Anthony Wright, also author of the short story collection Smoke Ghosts & Other Outré Tales, presents powerful storytelling with a sense of compassion for people, the environment, and indigenous customs and beliefs. His perceptive description of native peoples, places, and beliefs mingles with modern-day explorers and flirts with magical realism. Wright has been compared to Burroughs, Bowles, Dostoyevsky, Kerouac, and even to some degree Joyce, as he searches out the sacred and profane of contemporary society.
