From WordFire Press…
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Who is more dangerous, the man who kills from compulsion? Or the man who kills from calculation?
Monument, Colorado. WordFire Press is proud to announce the release of Walpurgis III, by Hugo and Nebula Winning Author, Mike Resnick!
Conrad Bland has slaughtered tens of millions, a butcher vastly worse than Hitler. He has never considered not killing anyone who stood in his way.
He takes refuge on Walpurgis III, a planet settled by various cults of devil worshippers. He is the manifestation of the evil they revere, but now that they have come face-to-face with their beliefs, the cults desperately want Bland to be removed from their lives, their world, and entirely from existence.
So Walpurgis III contacts Jericho, the greatest assassin in the galaxy, to rid them of Conrad Bland. But once the assassin arrives and begins to make his bloody way toward Bland’s headquarters, the people—especially John Sable, the top policeman on the planet—must face an excruciating choice.
