My totally awesome client, Dale Lucas, has agreed to give away a copy of his novel DOC VOODOO: ACES AND EIGHTS to one lucky reader of my blog. I'm excited. I really think Dale is a talent and I want his awesome writing to reach more people.

DOC VOODOO: ACES AND EIGHTS was published by Beating Windward Press in late 2011. Here's how the publisher describes it: Jam-packed with mobsters, mystery, magic and mayhem, Dale Lucas offers a new twist on the action-hero and a love letter to classic pulp fiction like no other. Harlem, 1926: The First World War is still The Great War. Jazz is new and always in the air. Booze is black market and the market is worth killing over. As the West Indies and the Harlem Knights wage a bloody turf war in Harlem, the Irish, Italian and Jewish mobs circle like sharks and a helpless community bleeds. But one of Harlem's darkest denizens has been called by the old gods in answer to the people's prayers for help. He stalks Harlem's night as a skull-faced, gun-toting, supernaturally-powered avenger that the people call the Cemetary Man... the Witch Doctor... the Dread Baron... But you can just call him Doc Voodoo. In Doc Voodoo: Aces & Eights, The Queen Bee controls the speakeasies, brothels and numbers rackets in north Harlem; Papa House controls the south. As the Queen Bee puts the final touches on her new night club, Papa House makes his move to take over all of Harlem, declaring war. However Doc Voodoo is out to maintain peace, prosperity, and autonomy for the residents of Harlem. Navigating a minefield of gang rivalries, political corruption, and black magic, Doc Voodoo lays down a new law in Harlem, dispensing two-fisted justice with a heaping helping of hot lead!

DOC VOODOO has received rave reviews from SF Site, as well as authors Ron Fortier and Charles Saunders. Fortier called it "as good a pulp actioner as any other there on the market today"!
