Your Gischler Holiday Shopping Guide.

It's that time again, when Americans rise from their turkey comas to fling themselves into the deadly embrace of Black Friday.  If YouTube videos of previous Back Fridays are any indication, many of you will not survive.  Imagine being one of the lucky few to make it through unscathed only to return home and realize you forgot a gift for some uncle or cousin.  You don't want to go back out there, do you?

The answer?  eBooks.  That's right, from the comfort and safety of your home, you can gift one of my books to that friend or relation with a Kindle or other reading device.

The cost of my FANTASY TRILOGY is far, far less expensive than the average Lexus.

Prefer something gritty and hard-boiled?  Then try my first novel Gun Monkeys!

Prefer something strange and offensive?  Then grab yourself a copy of Gestapo Mars!

Comics?  Perhaps my B-Movie creator-owned Sally of the Wasteland is what you need.

The above is a selection.  There's plenty more.  And since writing is how I pay the bills, I feel like I need to go all carnival barker once in a while.  Hopefully you've been inspired to give the gift of reading.

Good shopping, and happy holidays!
