THE SCYTHE HAS RISEN! Dieselfunk has emerged and the Roaring Twenties will never seem the same!


Dieselfunk has emerged and the Roaring Twenties will never seem the same!


The ScytheThe very first Dieselfunk novel, The Scythe, is now available in both paperback and e-book formats!

Here’s a peek at what it’s about:


Out of the tragedy of the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921, a two-fisted hero rises from the grave!

Dr. A. C. Jackson has been given a second chance at life. A second chance at revenge. He is the bridge between the Quick and the Dead.


LA_VIPERE_NOIRE_HQInspired by the pulp magazines of the 1930s and 1940s, a tale of action, adventure, thrills and chills await fans of Dieselpunk, die-hard pulp fans and readers who just love a gritty story that packs a mean punch.

Enter a world in which Gangsters, Flappers, vampires, robots and the Ku Klux Klan all roam the same dark back streets; a world of grit, grime and grease; a world of hardboiled gumshoe detectives and mad scientists; a world where magic and technology compete for rule over the world.

Dieselfunk has emerged in The Scythe…and the Roaring Twenties will never seem the same!


*This novel also contains the illustrated short story, La Vipère Noire and the Initiation at Pic la Selle (illustrated by the Blacktastic artist Chris Miller) and other goodies!

        You’re welcome! Thank you for writing things like this.

        It was a lot of fun, and definitely had that pulp feel. At first I was sad it ended so soon, but that’s just part of the pulpiness. I can definitely see The Scythe being reprinted in a larger book of your dieselfunk stories, perhaps an entire book dedicated to future Scythe tales. The ebook had a few grammatical errors, but they were minor compared to the ones in the Once Upon a Time in Afrika ebook. I had already read the essays included at the end of the book, but they were a treat to read again, and I think they help get readers inspired to try their own dieselfunk stories. A great read, one I would definitely recommend to friends, and I hope to see more adventures with Dr. Jackson and Ikukulu.
