First of the RV & OI Novels!

Water Towers Look Like Martians, the first of a projected series of four "RV & OI" novels (well, novellas, really) by Jeffrey Scott Holland, is less than two days away!

The story concerns the tiny adventures of a pair of eccentric street buskers calling themselves "Retrovirus" (RV) and "Opportunistic Infection" (OI) and has the added virtue of being based on a true story. (You can read about the real-life RV & OI and their homemade tape and indie comic book empire here.)

Unlike standard JSH Book Club selections, Water Towers Look Like Martians will not be available through Amazon and will be released in print format only, each copy handmade with rather primitive and lowbrow production values. Each book will be a unique art-object unto itself, held together with string, glue, gum, tape, and who knows what else. Each and every copy is signed and numbered by the author.

To be officially released on March 31, Water Towers Look Like Martians is approximately 40 pages long and costs a mere $9.99 postpaid. Order copies directly from the JSH Book Club at our mailing address. The four volumes will be eventually collected into one greater compendium, so these individual editions are strictly limited!

(Meanwhile, the next "real" JSH novel is likely to be the weird western epic The Invisible Ranch with a projected release date of June 25!)
