tqp-logo-readyAnd now, the third of four preview excerpts from “Burn Down Bloody Twilight,” the forthcoming novel by Jeff Holland and published by Threat Quality Press. (ON SALE FRIDAY)

It is an epic and yet easily accessible fantasy-adventure yarn (can epics take place over the course of three days?) with soldiers, pirates, zombies, alarmingly profane magicians, and stoned warrior-monks. And here’s a bit from the fourth chapter:

Chapter 4: Customer Relations

Cord grunted angrily and leaned back into his chair. After several minutes of sitting with his arms crossed, frowning as hard as humanly possible, he picked up his book, flipped it open, and stared at words he didn’t absorb.
