Warlock

Book Synopsis Warlock by : Jim Harrison

This “sort of detective story” by the New York Times bestselling novelist offers “farcical, reflective, luscious, gritty [and] stylish entertainment” (The New York Times). As a Boy Scout, Johnny Lundgren was given the nickname Warlock. Now, at forty-two years of age, Johnny has decided to take up that moniker again. It might be an odd name for an unemployed business executive living in Traverse City, Michigan. But perhaps it fits his new job working for an eccentric doctor as a personal trouble-shooter and private investigator. Warlock suddenly finds himself on a range of bizarre assignments—everything from battling poachers in the haunted wilderness of northern Michigan to investigating his employer’s wife and son in the seamy underside of Key West. A comedy with one foot in the abyss, Warlock is “a rich and sparkling novel” by one of America’s most critically acclaimed authors. “Contemporary macho in a funhouse mirror . . . a hybrid born out of Faulkner’s dark hero of Satoris and all the Buster Keaton comedy that we love.”—Los Angeles Herald Examiner

Warlock

Book Synopsis Warlock by : Oakley Hall

Oakley Hall's legendary Warlock revisits and reworks the traditional conventions of the Western to present a raw, funny, hypnotic, ultimately devastating picture of American unreality. First published in the 1950s, at the height of the McCarthy era, Warlock is not only one of the most original and entertaining of modern American novels but a lasting contribution to American fiction. "Tombstone, Arizona, during the 1880's is, in ways, our national Camelot: a never-never land where American virtues are embodied in the Earps, and the opposite evils in the Clanton gang; where the confrontation at the OK Corral takes on some of the dry purity of the Arthurian joust. Oakley Hall, in his very fine novel Warlock has restored to the myth of Tombstone its full, mortal, blooded humanity. Wyatt Earp is transmogrified into a gunfighter named Blaisdell who . . . is summoned to the embattled town of Warlock by a committee of nervous citizens expressly to be a hero, but finds that he cannot, at last, live up to his image; that there is a flaw not only in him, but also, we feel, in the entire set of assumptions that have allowed the image to exist. . . . Before the agonized epic of Warlock is over with—the rebellion of the proto-Wobblies working in the mines, the struggling for political control of the area, the gunfighting, mob violence, the personal crises of those in power—the collective awareness that is Warlock must face its own inescapable Horror: that what is called society, with its law and order, is as frail, as precarious, as flesh and can be snuffed out and assimilated back into the desert as easily as a corpse can. It is the deep sensitivity to abysses that makes Warlock one of our best American novels. For we are a nation that can, many of us, toss with all aplomb our candy wrapper into the Grand Canyon itself, snap a color shot and drive away; and we need voices like Oakley Hall's to remind us how far that piece of paper, still fluttering brightly behind us, has to fall." —Thomas Pynchon

Book Synopsis The Warlock Unlocked by : Christopher Stasheff

A FAMILY LOST IN A WORLD OF MAGIC AND MONSTERS A scientist from Earth at heart, Rod Gallowglass has come to terms with the “magic” of the medieval lost colony planet of Gramarye, and is just beginning to understand his own powers. But when his enemies lure his family through a portal into what appears to be an alternate universe, he must follow them into a world where magic really does seem to work and where the laws of the universe seem to have been rewritten. Reluctantly drawn into a dynastic conflict, hunted by monsters both faery and human, can Rod and his wife Gwen keep their children free and safe, let alone find a way back to their home world of Gramarye? Bringing his renowned blend of science fiction and fantasy back to the world of Gramarye, Christopher Stasheff once again redefines what is real and what is “magic.”

Book Synopsis The Warlock in Spite of Himself by : Christopher Stasheff

SCIENCE AND SORCERY DO NOT MIX—EXCEPT ON GRAMARYE Skeptical, cynical Rod Gallowglass is a spacefaring man of science who does not believe in magic. He's also an operative of the agency SCENT, tasked with finding lost colony planets, then guiding them toward democracy and eventual membership in the galactic community. But when he stumbles across the strange new planet Gramarye, he's shocked to discover a medieval society full of witches and warlocks, elves and monsters. How is it even possible? Worse, Rod's advanced technology quickly gets him labeled a warlock, despite his constant denials. Moreover, the Kingdom is in political turmoil, with a young girl-queen on the brink of civil war with her rebellious lords. Rod slowly discovers off-world organizations are behind the unrest, trying to subtly corrupt Gramarye away from democratic rule. His mission is threatened at every turn by fascists, anarchists, and double-dealing royalists playing vicious political power games for the future of the most unique—and perhaps most important—planet in the galaxy. Aided only by a coven of teenage witches, a ragtag army of beggars, and his epileptic robot horse Fess, Rod decides the only way to thwart these destructive influences—both native and off-planet—is for him to become a part of the local fabric and lead Gramarye as one of their own. But to do so, Rod Gallowglass must put aside his own convictions and beliefs, and become a warlock, in spite of himself.
