Snake Handlin’ Man
The Snake Handlin’ Man is Eddie Marlow, make-do guitarist, ex-Marine, and the world’s best tambourine player, ever.
When an attack of flying snakes in a roadside diner leaves the band’s organist fighting for his life, Eddie leads the band into the lair of a snake-worshipping cult in a desperate attempt to collect the sovereign remedy for snakebite: the milk of a lamia. More
The band is eating at a cheap diner with the local club manager, making arrangements for the evening's gig, when they are attacked by a swarm of flying snakes. Adrian, the organ player and wizard, is bitten. Before he puts himself into a magical coma, face turning purple, he warns his band mates that they only have three hours to save him.
Can the band find a cure before Adrian's time is up? Why is the town's preacher obsessed with the ancient Israelite serpent icon, the Nehushtan? And can the band get out of town before the snake god Apep arrives?
Snake Handlin’ Man is the second installment of Rock Band Fights Evil, a pulp fiction serial by D.J. Butler. Read more about D.J. Butler’s books at http://davidjohnbutler.com.
