Roll Up! Roll Up! Excerpt of Dr Potter’s Medicine Show

Dr Potter's Medicine Show by Eric Scott FischlLadies, Gentlemen and Robots! Step up and discover the strange and powerful elixir that is Dr Potter’s Medicine Show.

Here is your chance to discover more of Eric Scott Fischl’s darkly fantastical twist on historical fiction, described as “Dirty, dank, and dangerous. Dr Potter’s Medicine Show is the missing season of Carnivàle you didn’t know you needed until now.” by Adam Rakunas, Philip K Dick Award-nominated author of Windswept.

Here is the synopsis:

Dr. Alexander Potter, disgraced Civil War surgeon, now huckster and seller of snake-oil, travels the wet roads of the Pacific Northwest with a disheartened company of strongmen, illusionists, fortunetellers, and musical whores. Under the quiet command of the mysterious, merciless, and murderous Lyman Rhoades, they entertain the masses while hawking the Chock-a-saw Sagwa Tonic, a vital elixir touted to cure all ills both physical and spiritual… although, for a few unfortunate customers, the Sagwa offers something much, much worse.

For drunken dentist Josiah McDaniel, the Sagwa has taken everything from him; in the hired company of two accidental outlaws, the bickering brothers Solomon Parker and Agamemnon Rideout, he looks to revenge himself on the Elixir’s creator: Dr. Morrison Hedwith, businessman, body-thief, and secret alchemist, a man who is running out of time.

Intrigued? Read the first 3 chapters below:

Dr Potter’s Medicine Show is available now from all reputable and non-reputable retailers, including right here.

Book Signing: N S Dolkart

Angry Robot Author, N. S. DolkartN S Dolkart, debut author of the epic fantasy Silent Hall, will be holding a book signing on June 15 at Wellesley Books in Wellesley, MA to celebrate its upcoming release. Why not learn a little about Dolkart before the day by checking out our recent interview with the man himself?

For those who haven’t yet had a chance to see it, here’s the synopsis of Silent Hall:

Five bedraggled refugees and a sinister wizard awaken a dragon and defy the gods.

After their homeland is struck with a deadly plague, five refugees cross the continent searching for answers. Instead they find Psander, a wizard whose fortress is invisible to the gods, and who is willing to sacrifice anything – and anyone – to keep the knowledge of the wizards safe.

With Psander as their patron, the refugees cross the mountains, brave the territory of their sworn enemies, confront a hostile ocean and even traverse the world of the fairies in search of magic powerful enough to save themselves – and Psander’s library – from the wrath of the gods.

All they need to do is to rescue an imprisoned dragon and unleash a primordial monster upon the world.

How hard could it be?
