The Dead Man: The Blood Mesa, by James Reasoner is available today.

Check out this awesome cover. Carl did a great job. :)

Here is what some reviwers have said about it:

Permission To Kill:
“…told at such pace that it will leave most readers breathless. This story is the literary equivalent to a drag strip race, with the title page being the starting line, and the first paragraph being the green light. From its opening, the story keeps accelerating until its brutal climax.”

Wag The Fox:
“…goes straight for the jugular, ramping up the danger almost immediately, plunging Matt, the professors, and students, in a blood-soaked rampage that echoes the kind of tragedy that may have befallen the Anasazi.”

Post-Modern Pulps
“…one of the most brutal and violent entries in an already brutal and violent series. The story riffs off of some creepy western themes, with a hefty dose of cannibalism, whacko/zombie-movie mania, and did I mention there’s a few sticks of dynamite thrown in for good measure?”

Having read the book myself, I heartily agree. I have to say that this project has been the most fun I’ve had writing in a long time, and those who haven’t read the series are really missing out.

Buy it now on Kindle, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords.

It is also available as a paperback.
