Guy Psycho and the Ziggurat of Shame

Front Cover
Beating Windward Press LLC, Apr 16, 2019 - Fiction - 220 pages

Guy Psycho and the Postmodernaires don't have the credit to outlast the week when an enigmatic billionaire offers them five million dollars for a private performance of their lounge act.

Somehow, that performance includes re-enacting an ancient Assyrian epic deep inside a mountain in Tennessee, in the sub-basement of a mountainside mansion that leads all the way to ancient Mesopotamia.

To escape, Guy and his bandmates must retrieve a rumored thirteenth tablet of Gilgamesh. If they don't, they can't spend the five million, and worse, they'll be 5,000 years early for their gig at the Sabre Room.
