Endorsements of the Apocalypse

Authors know that blurbs are a peculiar animal. We're never quite sure what difference they make (if any) but we all want them and think maybe we need them. I'm no different. I'd like to thank the outstanding folks below for taking the time to read G-Go and give me the following:

"First, who wouldn't want to read a novel titled GO-GO GIRLS OF THE APOCALYPSE? Second, who could have guessed the book was even better than the title? Part Christopher Moore, part Quentin Tarantino, Victor Gischler is a raving, bad-ass genius."
-- James Rollins, New Tork Times bestselling author of Map of Bones and Black Order

"If it's all going to go to hell, you might as well have some Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse to go with it. Weird just doesn't say it for this one. Gischler gives weird a kick in the butt, sends it right over the edge of the abyss. Wild fun."
-- Joe R. Lansdale

"Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse is funny, mordant, crazed, riviting, sardonic -- and despite all that, it's got a plot. Bravo for Victor Gischler."
-- Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Mike Resnick

"Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse proves, if proof were needed, that Victor Gischler is among the most demented, nimble, and flat-out hilarious American satirists working today. Listen closely: that sound you here, somewhere out there, is Vonnegut's applause."
-- Sean Doolittle, author of The Cleanup

"If Pynchon ever decided to write an insane action novel, this would be it. All out sustained brilliance, nobody is writing the unique lunacy that Victor Gischler is."
-- Ken Bruen, author of The Guards and American Skin

Thanks, guys.

If you buy only one novel full of go-go girls this decade, make it this one. It's like The Road, only with girls, and a lot more laughs.
Okay, haven't read it yet. Somehow all these big-time writers get advance copies... but I am counting the days until the Oklahoma release parties.
