A Comedy of Imbeciles
"A Comedy of Imbeciles" is a loving tribute to the rollicking, rip-roaring adventure pulps of the 1930s and 1940s, set against modern era current events. A mysterious assassin has come to Florida, attempting to end the life of our intrepid rustic Doyce Whisanant, and the subsequent drama embroils his rugged team of individualist ne'er-do-wells as the plot thickens and transports us all to the prehistoric environs of distant Tutoro Tamar! There, Doyce and his team face multiple threats from both personal and historical pasts, even as their beloved Republic back home falls under the sway of globalist fascism. Enjoy this penultimate episode in volume 21 of The Whisanant Mythos.
About Tony W. Arnold (Jacksonville, Florida Author)
Over a varied career ranging from law enforcement to antiquarian bookseller, Arnold has pursued his eclectic, picaresque fictional style through the underground 'zine scene of the 1990s, which has now crystallized into The Whisanant Mythos: a series of works revolving around protagonist mainstay Doyce Whisanant and crew.
With occasional forays into art books, this output has now surpassed thirty installments, incorporating a widely-divergent palette combining the most interesting aspects of noir and sweat pulp fiction, black humor, and spirituality. Billed as Southern Gonzo, these works take their place alongside Arnold's other creative endeavors on his central website www.TheBookBastard.com, "the abattoir of the sacred cow." Arnold long ago adopted Florida as his literary center, and has now made it his actual home base.
