The Grim Reaper Endorses UNTIL THE LAST DOG DIES!


This ominous announcement from The Other Side marks the beginning of an important countdown... the countdown to the November 21st publication of Robert Guffey's first novel, UNTIL THE LAST DOG DIES.  What are high-ranking initiates of The Illuminati, as opposed to immortal supernatural entities, saying about this important debut?  See below to answer that burning question....

“Taps into the cultural zeitgeist . . . A nihilistic satire that takes the idea that death is easy and comedy is hard to a whole new level.”—Kirkus Reviews 

“Guffey’s sardonic, cleverly written comedic debut relies heavily on absurd synchronicity, bold characterization, and heavy irony to make its points about the apocalyptic nature of American humorlessness.”—Publishers Weekly 

“A playful amalgam of Andy Kaufman and Philip K. Dick by way of Shaun of the Dead.” —Damien Lincoln Ober, author of Doctor Benjamin Franklin's Dream America 

“This satirical tale explores the role of comedy in maintaining a healthy democracy. . . . A clever concept.”—Kirkus Reviews

What's UNTIL THE LAST DOG DIES all about, you ask?  According to The Grim Reaper, who composed the back cover copy for this new novel with a crow quill pen dipped in pig's blood, in the incandescent pages of this darkly humorous novel you will meet...

...a young stand-up comedian named Elliot Greeley who must adapt to an apocalyptic virus affecting people’s sense of humor.
What happens when all humor is wiped off the face of the Earth?
Around the world, an unusual viral plague is striking the population. The virus attacks only one particular section of the brain. It isn’t fatal, but it results in the victim’s sense of humor being obliterated. No one is immune.
Elliot, a young stand-up comedian starving his way through alternative comedy clubs in Los Angeles, isn’t even certain the virus is real at first. But as the pandemic begins to eat away at the very heart of civilization itself, the virus affects Elliot and his close knit group of comedian friends in increasingly personal ways.
What would you consider the end of the world?
Until the Last Dog Dies is a sharp, cutting satire, both a clever twist on apocalyptic fiction and a poignant look at the things that make us human.
