Description

Carter Sloan is a trained assassin—the best there is, pulled out of cryogenic sleep whenever an assignment demands his skills. So when he’s kept in the deep freeze for 258 years, he’s seriously pissed off.

Yet his government needs him, to hunt down the enemy known as the Daughter of the Brass Dragon. The future of the galaxy-spanning Reich depends on it, so Sloan is off—screwing, swearing, and shooting his way across interstellar space.

lt’s action, adventure, and disgusting gelatinous aliens as only Victor Gischler can create them.

For comics Gischler created the maniac Deadpool Corps for Marvel Comics (featuring the character slated for a major motion picture), spent two years writing X-Men, and is writing season ten of Angel & Faith in Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe, as well as the Titan Comics Grindhouse-style series Sally of the Wasteland

Praise For Gestapo Mars

“Victor Gischler’s Gestapo Mars is the literary equivalent of filet mignon with a side of fries and a cold, cold beer. Hyperviolent, oversexed, full of crazy ideas, packed with action, and delivered at breakneck speed, Gestapo Mars brings together the best of what sci-fi pulp has to offer and then sprinkles enough smart ideas and humor on top to make it the kind of book even those who think they’ll hate it should read.” - HorrorTalk 

“Will no doubt please those readers hoping for a space-futuristic story that sharply veers from the norm” - Popwrapped

"Gestapo Mars will light your fire in ways other space operas won’t. It wears its inspirations well: Buck Rogers (obviously), Barbarella, and the climax is straight out of Star Wars: A New Hope, complete with gelatinous aliens, the Coriandons – the spanner in the Nazi works" - Project Fandom

"crazy, sexy, and action-packed." - Bookgasm

"These are the very adult adventures of an irreverent action anti-hero whose derring-do will keep you in stitches." -  Count Gore

"Gestapo Mars knows what you’ve come for, striking its targets with a laser beam right through the bullseye. Gratuitous sex? Check. Muscle-bound, gun-toting ultra-violence? Check. Nazis using their mega-ship to fire a broadside at a fleet of invading snot-aliens? Check. Outlandish fun from start to finish."--Nudge BookGeek

"Sci-fi yarns don't get much wackier." - Publishers Weekly

“The action is fast, furious and irreverent...sanity has left the building” - Sanford Allen

"A non stop (and fast) romp of action, sex, and funny parody, set in a galaxy that is completely mis-managed by its goose stepping government." - Atomic Moo
