Product Details

Praise

“There is a lot going on in this novel, but it never feels overstuffed: fascinating history lessons, Native mythological archetypes, compelling and broken characters, and damn good storytelling elevates The Trials of Solomon Parker to whole new level of weird western. Two excellent books in a calendar year – Fischl is definitely a writer to watch.”
– Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

“DAMN ENTERTAINING and unique. I highly recommend it!”
– Char’s Horror Corner

The Trials of Solomon Parker is a darkly philosophical novel, one that feels very honest for all its lack of hope.”
– A Bookish Type

The Trials of Solomon Parker by Eric Scott Fischl is a ’What would happen if you could go back and fix your mistakes?’ book which succeeds when it breaks away from the expected pattern for such a book. Which it does. A lot. It succeeds a lot.”
– Anthony Eichenlaub

“In case you can’t tell, I really liked this book… I highly recommend The Trials of Solomon Parker. 4 hoots!”
– Purple Owl Reviews

“If this is truly only Fischl’s second novel (and even if it isn’t) he’s really going to be someone to watch. I’m not sure how he’s ever going to top this one, but I’m pretty sure he’s going to try. And I, for one, can’t wait until he does. I’m a Fischl fangurl now, for sure.”
– Skiffy and Fanty Podcast

Praise for Dr Potter’s Medicine Show

“Eric Scott Fischl offers up a powerful alchemical elixir concocted of post Civil War historical fiction, dark fantasy, Felliniesque flavoring, all in a ruby goblet of lapidary prose. Take the goblet, and drink deeply.”
– John Shirley, author of the A Song Called Youth trilogy

The Trials of Solomon Parker is a darkly philosophical novel, one that feels very honest for all its lack of hope.”
– A Bookish Type

“An impressive book: the world is richly imagined, and the characters are vividly drawn. The mysteries are teased out at just the right pace, and I couldn’t put it down. If this show rolls around again, I’ll be first in line for a ticket.”
– Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

Dr. Potter’s Medicine Show is a brilliant study of characters struggling against the monstrous to retain their own humanity. Fischl’s talent for voice and knack for characterization finds humor and beauty amidst horror and depravity. It’s heartbreaking, elegiac, and an absolute pleasure to read.”
– Carrie Patel, author of the Recoletta series

“Fischl has infused his tale of the old west with one part of alchemy and one part of gangster movie. The resultant brew is deliciously dark and entirely compelling.”
– Rod Duncan, Philip K Dick Award-nominated author of The Bullet-Catcher’s Daughter
