The Company mining town of Thurber, Texas has fallen off the map. Some want to keep it that way. Others seek the truth. But its plague-infected residents have a mind of their own.

"Forget emergency landing procedures. When reading Twitch and Die! all one can do is hold on for dear life."

"Disguised as double-fisted pulp fiction, the Lost DMB Files resurrect a forgotten history. The life's work of author David Mark Brown, mysteriously disappeared in the 1930's, has only recently taken on new life surrounding the controversy that these "Lost" files are more than mere fiction. Let the reader decide for her or himself." ~ Professor Jim Buckner, Dept. Geology University of Texicas, Austin

Two populist Texan folk-heros, Chancho Villarreal and James Starr, embark on a mission of political endorsement, but what they find is a hill country rife with fear and rumor. A so-called Angel of Death is executing individuals infected by a terrible plague, and the company mining town at the epicenter has gone dark.

It's up to Chancho to navigate a world of shifting allegiances while uncovering the truth about a plague and its infected who refuse to die quietly.

"If there was a top to be over, Twitch and Die! removed it completely, and with electrifying results."

Just read the first chapter, and was very happy with it. I could already imagine a movie of this, but I will read on first

This is incredibly interesting so far, I can definitely say that I'm greatly reminded of some great graphic novels as I read this. If not already, this one oudda be published!

A very interesting first chapter. It seems to me like a mix of literary and action. Could be a lot of potential in that combination. I'll read on...

McCutchen still kicks ass. :D Liked your description of the quiet in the third para and the action, as always. Oh and love the cover. Pretty neat.
