Overview Screaming Batfish Blues by Scott L Anderson



Burning hotter than a flaming shot of grain alcohol, Screaming Batfish Blues is a cannibas and booze fueled paranoid vision of military and governmental conspiracy told through the eyes of two
marijuana dealing sailors serving in the post-Vietnam era Navy. A pulpy crime novel packed full of drugs, military espionage, sex, prison, corrupt cops, burned out porn stars, whores, strippers,
and murder - Screaming Batfish Blues will take you from the farmlands of Minnesota to the islands of Hawaii to the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles and finally to the Caribbean as both men try to
flee from the personal hell they have created for themselves.
