Mega Book Tour and Giveaways: The Last Station by Jon Reisfield and Mad Gods by Athanasios






About the book:

On April 30, 1945, Adolf Hitler, one of the most notorious mass-murderers in history, retired to his room in his bunker, 25 feet beneath the old Reich Chancery garden. Above him, the Red Army was encircling Berlin as his dream of a thousand-year Aryan empire lay in ruins. Hitler placed a glass cyanide capsule between his teeth and pointed a loaded service pistol at his right temple. Then, smugly believing he had both evaded capture and escaped all accountability for his crimes, he bit down and pulled the trigger. He was wrong! The Last Way Station begins moments after Hitler’s successful suicide, when the F├╝hrer finds himself mysteriously transported to a numbingly cold, solitary holding cell in the afterworld. There, he meets his caseworker, a supernatural being tasked with helping him face, and work through, his sins. The caseworker explains that Hitler will remain in solitary confinement indefinitely, as he prepares his soul for eventual return to the material world. The method, Hitler learns, involves seeking enlightenment through physically embodying his victims and then personally reliving the atrocities committed against them in his name. This speculative, historical fantasy narrative explores Hitler’s psychology, the psychology of evil and asks, ‘What, if anything, constitutes fitting punishment for the ‘super evil?’'

About the author:




Jon Reisfield
A graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, Jon Reisfeld has worked, most of his adult life, as a writer and marketer. He has more than 25 years combined experience in journalism, corporate communications, advertising and marketing. At 23, Jon became the first writer ever to have a story start on the cover of Baltimore Magazine. (It was a piece about teenage suicide.) He later founded and published Housecalls, a Baltimore-based health-and-fitness magazine. In the mid 90s, Jon served as Director of Marketing and Communications for Duron Paints and Wallcoverings. He ran the half-billion dollar regional paint company's 12-person in-house advertising agency for several years before returning to his private marketing consulting practice. Jon's eclectic interests run the gamut from cosmology, chaos theory, technology and sci-fi to social issues, politics, the economy, anthropology, marketing and writing. He began writing fiction in his 40s and enjoys reading, walking, cycling, attending the theatre and "most" new movie openings. His next major fiction project will be a sci-fi trilogy set on earth and spanning "several hundred years" of human history.




About the book:
Mad Gods: Revelation Cancelled? (Predatory Ethics)


An immortal Byzantine king discovers and kidnaps the young Anti-Christ, in a desperate effort to save him, and the world, from his dark destiny. Now, he and the boy live on the run, and under constant threat, as they repeatedly attempt to out smart and out maneuver the servants of good and evil who pursue them. 

About the author:





Athanasios Galanis
Athanasios, a Montreal-based graphic/video artist, illustrator & writer, works in dvd production & film during the day -- and moonlights as a novelist at night. He has spent the past 10 years researching and crafting Mad Gods: weaving in factual & rumored history. Athanasios has a life-long fascination with religions, which has led him to study a bewildering array of beliefs: Paganism, wicca, judaism, christianity, islam, hinduism, buddhism, shintoism, luciferianism and much more. Out of his relentless pursuit of this interest sprang "Mad Gods." When he isn't delving into spiritualism and the occult, Athanasios pursues more pedestrian interests: His love of film, television and books. He won't touch video games, he says, for the same reason that he won't bring his favorite booze into the house: Once there, he would not be able to leave either one alone. For a while, Athanasios became obsessed with World of Warcraft, but he eventually gave it up for a deeper, and more compelling one: Mad Gods.
