Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unavailable for more than a decade, The Armageddon Rag is now back. Here is a literary trip like no other — part murder mystery, part psychedelic archive, with the pulse of rock 'n' roll driving the pace.

The Armageddon Rag follows journalist Sandy Blair as he investigates the bizarre and brutal murder of a rock promoter who made millions with his '60s band, the Nazgul. Sandy's search leads him back to his own past — and into a nightmare of rage, anarchy, and hope. Revisiting old friends and haunts, he discovers that the pent-up passions of a generation are exploding in a deadly revolution. And when a charismatic new leader brings the Nazgul back to life, they return with a mind-blowing, mind-bending requiem for the age. A comic, nostalgic thriller with brilliant storytelling at every turn, this is a must-read for anyone who prizes innovative fiction.

Synopsis:

“The best novel concerning the American pop music culture of the sixties I’ve ever read.”—Stephen King

 

From #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin comes the ultimate novel of revolution, rock ’n’ roll, and apocalyptic murder—a stunning work of fiction that portrays not just the end of an era, but the end of the world as we know it.

 

Onetime underground journalist Sandy Blair has come a long way from his radical roots in the ’60s—until something unexpectedly draws him back: the bizarre and brutal murder of a rock promoter who made millions with a band called the Nazgûl. Now, as Sandy sets out to investigate the crime, he finds himself drawn back into his own past—a magical mystery tour of the pent-up passions of his generation. For a new messiah has resurrected the Nazgûl and the mad new rhythm may be more than anyone bargained for—a requiem of demonism, mind control, and death, whose apocalyptic tune only Sandy may be able to change in time . . . before everyone follows the beat.

 

“The wilder aspects of the ’60s . . . roar back to life in this hallucinatory story by a master of chilling suspense.”—Publishers Weekly

 

“What a story, full of nostalgia and endless excitement. . . . It’s taut, tense, and moves like lightning.”—Tony Hillerman

 

“Daring . . . a knowing, wistful appraisal of . . . a crucial American generation.”—Chicago Sun-Times

 

“Moving . . . comic . . . eerie . . . really and truly a walk down memory lane.”—The Washington Post

About the Author

George R. R. Martin sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally since then. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid '90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he's allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, a big white dog called Mischa, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.
