Available now: Lewis and Loeb (a novella)
January 15, 2014 § 1 Comment
Last seen in the obscure 2005 short story ‘Schwartzberg’s Garden’, Matthew Asprey’s Lewis is back in a new comic misadventure!
The place is Tbilisi, crumbling capital of post-Soviet Georgia. Our expatriate Australian hero, author of ‘magisterial novels of the ancient world’, is in town to work as historical consultant on the sword-sandal-and-sex TV series Caledonian Blood. A thousand euros a week would not normally persuade Lewis to lend his good name to such trash; he’ll only do it as a favour for his brother-in-law, a depressed and cuckolded Polish TV producer.
But when a pregnancy test threatens to cause havoc in Lewis’s family-by-marriage, Lewis may need to rely on more than his Loeb Classical Library to hold the clan together…
There’s also a Paperback chapbook edition available @Amazon.com
