In fact, I think he largely resembles an alcoholic Chihuahua with deep grooming and psychological issues and I loathe him in all ways.
Yet somehow I always seem to get roped into his manic creative machinations and literary schemes. I co-authored TITLE FIGHT with him. I’ve done signings with him. I’ve done panels with him. I put him and his entire entourage up in my ancestral home during his book tours. I even arranged for the largest beer company in the world to sponsor one of his live events.
And now I’ve written another GFL novella with him.
Sigler just posted the cover for our new collaboration THE DETECTIVE on his own website, along with details about the story and its release and how amazing I am that you can check out here. The novella is set in Sigler’s Galactic Football League universe of crime, aliens, intrigue, zealotry, and insane and brutal interspecies blood sports.
It’s also apparently YA fiction. A fact I was completely ignorant of while writing it. So that will be interesting.
Why do I continually let him corral me into doing these things? Is it because he’s the New York Times best-selling author of CONTAGIOUS and NOCTURNAL? Is it because he pays me in untraceable German treasury certificates? Is it because he holds incriminating super 8 footage of me knife fighting for profit that is still admissible in several countries and principalities around the world?
Possibly. But when you acid-soak it down to the bone I think I end up playing along because Sigler’s worlds and characters tend to hit me where I live. This time he came to me with an ex-commando and ace military combat pilot turned hardboiled private investigator who also happens to be a gay man in a future where the Human race is a merciless puritanical theocracy.
How do you say no to that?
THE DETECTIVE will be released by Dark Øverlord Media next month and it will be available for both the Kindle and Nook, as well as through ScottSigler.com/store.
In the meantime, I advise you to pick up the other books in the GFL series so you’ll be able to fully appreciate the masterwork I have created for the wholly undeserving and unworthy mainstream pug that is Scott Sigler.
