The Armageddon Ragby George R.R. Martin
Synopses & Reviews
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.
Journalist Sandy Blair's investigation into the killing of a successful rock music promoter who made millions with his 1960s band, the Nazgul, takes him back into the lives of old friends, enmeshes him in a demonic plot, and threatens to make him a murderer. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
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.
