Cover & Synopsis: HERACLIX AND POMP: A NOVEL OF THE FABRICATED AND THE FEY by Forrest Aguirre

Here’s cool the cover (designed by Claudia Noble) and intriguing synopsis for the upcoming novel Heraclix and Pomp: A Novel of the Fabricated and the Fey by Forrest Aguirre.

Heraclix was dead and Pomp was immortal. That was before Heraclix’s reanimation (along with the sewn-together pieces and parts of many other dead people) and Pomp’s near murder at the hands of an evil necromancer. As they travel from Vienna to Prague to Istanbul and back again (with a side-trip to Hell), they struggle to understand who and what they are: Heraclix seeks to know the life he had before his death and rebirth, and Pomp wrestles with the language and meaning of mortality. As they journey across a land rife with revolution and unrest, they discover that the evil necromancer they thought dead might not be so dead after all. In fact, he might be making a pact to ensure his own immortality . . .
