Volk - A Novel of Radiant Abomination
Publisher: ChiZine Publications
The Bram Stoker Award–winning author “triumphantly returns to the world of Eutopia” in this “dazzling horror novel”of Nazis and demonic forces (Publishers Weekly, starred review). At the dawn of the twentieth century, orphaned farm boy Jason Thistledown and black physician Andrew Waggoner came face to face with monsters both human and inhuman. Alongside American eugenicists seeking to perfect the human race through breeding and culls, there was a parasitic entity named Juke that lived off people’s hopes, dreams, and faith, as it consumed humanity from within. Now the year is 1931, and the past that haunts Andrew and Jason is about to bring them together again. Andrew, now living in Paris, continues his tireless work to destroy the elusive Juke. Jason, a veteran pilot of WWI, is embarking on a new career flying mail across North Africa, hoping to forget his encounter with it. But in a remote valley in the Bavarian Alps, Germanic students of those same American eugenicists are desperately trying to uncover the secret of the Juke . . . and the promise of the Übermensch.
