Josh Langston writes books which have amused, angered, enlightened and entertained many readers. He regularly mines history for background that's little known but reliably fascinating. His plots are complex, interconnected and layered with humor and suspense; his characters are rarely predictable, and even his bad guys tend to be both engaging and diabolical.
Langston's readers are rarely satisfied with just one of his books, whether it's part of a series or a stand-alone. He's proud to let his southern roots show in his characters and his choice of settings.
His two most recent novel releases are: Treason, Treason!, an alternate history/time travel adventure set in the American Revolution, and A Primitive in Paradise, book three in his series about Mato, the two-foot tall American Indian warrior.
When he's not working on a new novel, Langston is most likely editing, teaching, blogging, or helping his wonderful wife watch their amazing grandkids. He’s even been known to goof off from time to time.

RESSURECTION BLUES opens with this line, "Trey opened his door to the first line of a joke: An Indian, a dwarf, and a biker walk into a bar..." It just keeps getting better after that. And if you think the Indian, the dwarf, and the biker are going to be the most engaging characters, think again. The cast of Resurrection Blues is an interesting and varied one, weaving in and out of several storylines culminating in the surprising conclusion. Once again, Josh Langston blends humor and wit with an entertaining writing style, and well fleshed out characters you are going to love to hate, and cheer. Fast paced and light, your time spent in Resurrection, the town that doesn't exist, will be a well spent escape.

'Resurrection Blues' was described in a review on the back as being like the works of Carl Hiassen, and I'd have to agree. It has a similar style of humor and the same sort of eccentric characters that makes Hiassen's novels so great. As in Langston's 'Druid's' series with Barbara Galler-Smith, the novel involves more than one plotline following several different characters, but the transitions flow very well and the plots are all woven together expertly, with all three coming together at the end. All in all, it's a great story, and I highly recommend it.

If you're a Carl Hiaasen fan, you need to read Resurrection Blues! Langston's style is similar to Hiaasen's in that he is adept at creating memorable, quirky characters and clever dialog.
It reads like a Hiassen novel with a bonus twist of fantasy. I found myself thinking of this amusing story during the day and couldn't wait to read the next chapter once I got home.
The only reason I waited awhile to read it was I had to get an e-reader so I could read it in bed!

What a fun read! Josh brings out a ton of stuff about a town living out there in the hinterland without the aid or incumbrance of government. Since I lived 30+ yrs around Atlanta, I really enjoyed the references to locations and rivalries and the colloquialisms that make this story so believeable. Well done!

I found the premise of the town too intriguing to resist, and while I was a little worried that it might get "preachy," I was pleasantly surprised when it didn't.
It was a quirky, fast-moving story with characters I liked and while some of the plot-threads felt a little wandering at points, it all wrapped up nicely. I really enjoyed it.
