Best known for writing hard-boiled, darkly comic crime novels, Victor Gischler now turns his hand to hard-boiled, darkly-comic science fiction with the fast, funny and action-packed Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse.
Go-Go Girls takes place nine years after the end of the world when insurance salesman Mortimer Tate emerges from the cave he's been hiding in for the past decade to see what's left of society. What he finds is a world dominated by chaos, barbarism -- and a chain of strip clubs known as Joey Armageddon's Sassy-A-Go-Go.
Mortimer hooks up with the Joey Armageddon crowd and winds up going to war to help them defend truth, justice and the American way -- or what's left of it, anyway. Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse is sometimes serious, sometimes funny and always good fun. Gischler continues to demonstrate that he's one of the freshest and most talented voices in genre fiction.
