Custer's Last Jump, and Other Collaborations
by Howard Waldrop
Synopsis of Custer's Last Jump, and Other Collaborations
Story collaborations between cult figure Howard Waldrop and numerous other celebrated science fiction and fantasy writers are collected for the first time in this unique volume. "One Horse Town" breathes fresh life into an ancient tale, combining elements from the sack of Troy, Homer's early days, the last day in the life of a Trojan warrior, and the archeological dig at Troy. In "Custer's Last Jump!" the legendary Crazy Horse uses Confederate monoplanes in his famous battle against General Custer. "A Voice and Bitter Weeping" paints a grim postnuclear age where Israeli mercenaries fight Texans in a never-ending, hopeless war. Mystery, intrigue, and treachery abound in the Heian Japan setting of "The Latter Days of the Law," where a clever man must find a lost prince. Each story features a riotously funny introduction by Waldrop and an afterword by the coAuthor.
