BUY BAXTER BOOK A BIT BEFORE...
Thursday, Jan. 16, 2003 @ 12:51 am

My new book is finally at the printer (hot shit!) and it's now available for pre-order at tnibooks.com. It'll ship mid-to-late February. It won't be available anywhere else for a good while, so if you want to get your copy early, this is your spot. I'm very excited to have this new one out there!

STAND UP, ERNIE BAXTER: YOU'RE DEAD
a new novel by ADAM VOITH with comic illustrations by Mike Lowery

"My name is Ernie Baxter, and my hands are tied. My history has passed to the memories and stories of my mother and ex-girlfriend. Bosses and co-workers. Bartenders and insurance agents. Friends and gym teachers."

The body of Ernie Baxter was just buried in the frozen earth of an Indiana winter, but Ernie's story is far from over. From beyond the pale, this newcomer to the heavenly scene observes the folks left down below - notably, his mother and onetime girlfriend Kyra - grieving his unexpected death. Kyra's husband Dain, a phony redneck with a trust-fund and a snowplow, wonders what the fuss is about. This unique novel mixes crisply written prose with the deft comic illustrations of underground artist Mike Lowery (4 full chapters done as comics!), delivering a witty and transcendental story of the legacy one man hoped to leave behind, and the twisted myth that actually remains.
