Description

Joe was just a guy punching the clock until Zappa showed up. But one flea-bitten, yowling tomcat later, and Joe is ejected from his daily grind to land smack in the middle of his dream job at the Brownbagg Brewery, a new life in a trailer park with a very interesting next-door neighbor named Janine—oh, and waking nightmares of a mysterious cult leader reanimating the dead. When Joe discovers that the monsters from his nightmares are real and headed straight for him, he must find a way to save Janine and himself, armed only with his good humor, weird intensity, dogged determination, and now: the shotgun.

Author Bob Mann has been creating stories, in one way or another, for as long as he can remember. He has a Master of Science in Chemistry and works as a hazardous materials chemist, specializing in reactive chemical hazards. He lives in a geodesic dome south of Houston with his wife and two cats.

Advance Praise

“Masterful prose, crafted like hard-edged poetry. . . . Riotously funny and hugely enjoyable!” —Pinckney Benedict, author of the award-winning Miracle Boy and Other Stories

“Holy Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove! With Shotgun Joe, Bob Mann gives Christopher Moore a run for his satirical money. Mann brings us a new hero, Joe Robinson—a broken-hearted, beer-chugging, workaday schlub with a brilliant, dark wit—who unearths a well of courage he didn’t know he had. From a fortune-telling cat to a hallucinated (we hope) four-dimensional alligator, from the beautiful woman next door to the all-too-real signs and portents of Charles Manson and an evil sister death cult, Shotgun Joe takes us through the full gamut of emotions, and keeps us laughing while clinging for life to the edge of our seats. A killer-good book!”
