A Helmet Full of Hair

Meet Donald “Do Nothing” DeWitt. Alone. In space. Drifting…

To keep from going mad with isolation, he relates to his mother the tale of the early days aboard Starship Wormwood (and how it blew up) into the tiny radio transmitter in his starsuit. A weak signal that could never possibly traverse the lightyears between him and Earth. Never mind, that because he has been traveling faster-than-light for several years, his mother has now been dead for several thousand…

With nothing but the sound of his own voice, Donald recalls alcoholic-rageaholic shipmate Ryerson jettisoning the ship’s garbage (and essentials) out of the dorsal airlock, when not attempting to grow marijuana on top of the ships hyperdrive… He remembers fondly his philosophical dalliances with Captain Hardwick (distractions which ultimately led to the ship’s demise)… O’Brien’s endless counting… And most of all, he remembers home… The only thing he CAN’T remember, are his reasons for joining the accursed mission in the first place.

A HELMET FULL OF HAIR is a short novella which masterfully blends surreal science fiction, dark comedy, and memoir.

The promotion starts tomorrow (February 28) and will run until midnight on Sunday, March 2nd.

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.

BUY ON AMAZON

Written as an epilog to HIRAM GRANGE & THE TWELVE LITTLE HITLERS, LITTLE EDSEL EINSTEIN is a stand-alone short story focusing on the only titular Hitler to have survived the novel – it’s also a great entry point into THE SCANDALOUS ADVENTURES OF HIRAM GRANGE series of books and stories…

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

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

“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

“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

Hiram Grange & the Twelve Little Hitlers – Kindle

Hitler has escaped. Twelve of them, to be precise. Each cloned from the original and hiding in the bizarre American underground. Hiram Grange has been tasked with hunting them down. The only problem: he’s hit rock bottom. His worst binge ever — a mad dance with absinthe, opium and depression. 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.
