WASTELAND BLUES – A novel of the post-apocalypse

Of Mice and Men Meets The Odyssey in a Post-Apocalyptic Future

Having only ever known the uncivilized wake of nuclear and biological apocalypse, three friends and their wheelchair-bound hostage set out on a perilous fool’s mission — to cross from one side of the devastated United States to the other, in the desperate, half-believed hope of finding a rumored haven.

Spurred by a dark vision and the murder of their father, rageaholic Derek Cane and his over-sized, simple-minded brother, Teddy, flee the only home they’ve ever known, a struggling shantytown on the edge of the vast Wasteland. Heading ever eastward, they are accompanied by their friend, John, an orphan brought up by a fanatical religious order, and Leggy, a crippled old drunk who brags that, in his youth, he once traversed the Wasteland as a scavenger.

The Jesus Bomb – A Hiram Grange Story

jesus

BUY ON AMAZON

Welcome to the scandalous misadventures of scurrilous boozer and malcontent, Hiram Grange. Though afflicted with a laundry list of dysfunctions, addictions and odd predilections, Hiram Grange stands toe to toe (and sometimes toe to tentacle) with the black-hearted denizens of the Abyss and dispenses justice with the help of his antiquated Webley revolver and Pritchard bayonet.

THE JESUS BOMB is a great place to dive into The Scandalous Misadventures of Hiram Grange series of books and stories. A stand-alone short story, THE JESUS BOMB is set a few years after events depicted in the book Hiram Grange & The Twelve Little Hitlers and just prior to the (forthcoming) novel Hiram Grange & The Twelve Apostles.

Hiram is up to his old tricks and vices (rampant absinthe and opium abuse, suicidal tendencies, depraved obsessions, murder) when his malignant reverie is interrupted by none other than Jesus Christ. At the 9/11 Ground Zero Memorial. With a nuclear bomb strapped to his chest.

The wonderful thing about the Hiram Grange series, is that you can dive in anywhere – different works by different authors provide unique perspectives and self-contained stories! Hiram Grange: there has never been an Antihero quite like him!

REVIEWS FOR SCOTT CHRISTIAN CARR’S HIRAM GRANGE:

More fun than a barrel full of Hitlers… The best novel since Don Quixote!”
–Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment and Creator of The Toxic Avenger.

“In The Village of the Damned – Grange’s first outing – we were introduced to Hiram’s addiction, in Twelve Little Hitlers we are dragged by the scruff of the neck, nailed to a seat in the front row and forced to bear witness, up close and personal, to the point where the horror is not so much propagated by the demons of the tale, but by the demons all too prevalent in life itself.

“A masterful,commanding piece of fiction, Twelve Little Hitlers is a must for ardent horror fans and contributors to the craft,alike.”
–Dave Jeffery, BookReview.com

“Hiram Grange is a kinetic tour de force… I can’t say enough about the writing style… It’s descriptive and poetic, hard-hitting and emotional… The world is painted in wild, but controlled strokes.”
–Nancy O. Greene, Dark recesses

“A shocker that begs to be read in one sitting…
–Nate Kenyon, author of THE BONE FACTORY and SPARROW ROCK

“Scott Christian Carr’s wickedly tantalizing prose is positively addictive. Hiram again finds himself immersed in delicious worldly sin as he saves mankind from evil and loses himself to the drug-induced fantasies… The wording is smooth and the humor, sneaky, satisfying both the bizarro lover as well as those that desire the darkest fiction.”
–Jessica Lynne Gardner

“Twelve Little Hitlers walks the tricky line between gut wrenching horror and almost terroristic black comedy. Its violent wonders are imaginative and plot driven. Scott Christian Carr goes for Weird and Funny and never settles for pointless or easy gross-outs. Hiram Grange, the disaffected, alcoholic protagonist, is at once pathetic and heroic as he chases down his unenviable destiny. A great read, with enough laughs and thrills to satisfy even die-hard horror fans.”
–Michael Boatman, author of The Revenant Road and God Laughs When You Die: Mean Little Stories From the Wrong Side of the Track; Actor, Warehouse 13, Spin City, Arli$$, Hamburger Hill, Gray’s Anatomy

Somewhere in the Underworld, Lovecraft is grinning with delight and Hunter S. Thompson is raising his bottle high. You won’t find a darker, more twisted character than Hiram Grange.”
–Gregory L. Hall, Host of the Funky Werepig and author of At the End of Church Street

The Garbage Eaters

BUY ON AMAZON

He goes by many names.
He’s a cult survivor, a cult junkie.
A cult leader.

The Garbage Eaters is the story of the final hours of one man’s psychotic crusade. He is the founder of Burning Bush Ministries. The corpses of his brainwashed followers litter the floor. His compound is surrounded by helicopters. The FBI is closing in.
Surrounded by a bank of satellite news-feeds, he relates the tale of his rise to power – from his dumpster diving days in San Francisco to the FBI assault on Burning Bush.

The Garbage Eaters is a hypnotic, unforgettable roller-coaster ride through a world overrun by the need to believe—from garbage-eating cults to health fetishists, tent revivals to new age UFO support groups, corporate money pyramids to sex and drug therapy schemes. Author Scott Christian Carr’s mesmerizing, punch-in-the-gut prose betrays a sincere study of cult brainwashing techniques, tent revivalism, neuro-linguistic programming and poetic grittiness.

The end is closing in. People are dying. And you will believe . . .

HIRAM GRANGE & THE TWELVE LITTLE HITLERS continues the misadventures of the scurrilous boozer and malcontent Hiram Grange. Though afflicted with a laundry list of dysfunctions, addictions and odd predilections, Hiram Grange stands toe to toe (and sometimes toe to tentacle) with the black-hearted denizens of the Abyss, dispensing justice with the help of an antiquated Webley revolver and a Pritchard bayonet.
