An all-star serial killer terrorizes Earth’s smartest detectives
Raffles Tunny, a juggler in the employ of the United States government, is relaxing at his Swiss chalet when a killer comes to call. He’s found the next day, electrocuted in the style of serial murderer Shocker Fulson, the man with the electric touch. The trouble is, Shocker’s dead—cremated and interred in New Orleans—and Raffles is not the first victim. Six other government-employed entertainers are have been murdered, all of them killed in the style of an executed madman. A case this insane demands an equally insane detective, which means it’s time to call Odd Jobs, Inc. Jake and Hildy Pace have made names for themselves solving impossible murders. But nabbing the copycat lunatic will mean facing down the Amateur Mafia, a gang of belly-button ventriloquists, and the strangest doctor the future has ever seen. One false step, and they’ll follow Raffles to the great music hall in the sky.

About the author

Ron Goulart (b. 1933) is a cultural historian and novelist. Besides writing extensively about pulp fiction—including the seminal Cheap Thrills: An Informal History of Pulp Magazines (1972)—Goulart has written for the pulps since 1952, when the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction published his first story, a sci-fi parody of letters to the editor. Since then he has written dozens of novels and countless short stories, spanning genres and using a variety of pennames, including Kenneth Robeson, Joseph Silva, and Con Steffanson. In the 1990s, he became the ghostwriter for William Shatner’s popular TekWar novels. Goulart’s After Things Fell Apart (1970) is the only science-fiction novel to ever win an Edgar Award. In the 1970s Goulart wrote novels starring series characters like Flash Gordon and the Phantom, and in 1980 he published Hail Hibbler, a comic sci-fi novel that began the Odd Jobs, Inc. series. Goulart has also written several comic mystery series, including six books starring Groucho Marx. Having written for comic books, Goulart produced several histories of the art form, including the Comic Book Encyclopedia (2004).

The Screaming Demon is the sequel to the Beginning. The book follows Malcolm, when he makes his way toward the castle, looking for revenge. He must come to terms with his self and the fact that he is now a witch doctor. He wakes up, only to discover he is not alone. The Rat jumped onto Malcolm Batleys lap, making him jump, and this time he had peed himself. The Rat was very small, but his legs and arms were long! He was all covered in long brown hair, so they called him the Little Rat. The Rat gives Malcolm some good advice. Then he tells Malcolm what he must do, but will he do what Rat asked? You save Little Rat! Click . . . You kick man from village in ribs, so I get away from him . . . Then so I give magic to you! Man from village . . . He try steals my magic from me, but now villages think I run with a Screaming Demon, so now they leave me alone! Click! Villages think you are Screaming Demon . . . they now leave you alone, and keep out of your way but, one or two will try stealing magic from you! Rat gave me the bad news. Now I would have to take him to his grave to his grave. I would not be burying him. I would be taking him to the top of Mount Cameroon, where I had to drop him into the volcano, dead or alive. I told him no at first. Thats when he told me about the castle, which I was looking for. Rat, whom I called Little Man and the man, who I became good friends with. How could I throw him to his death? Little man was a good persuader. If I took him to his resting place, he would show me how to kill the serpent and where I could find him. Then he would teach me how to survive and what I could eat. So I said I would take him. He said he was dying anyway. I was in for a long and hard walk, which would take me right back to where it all began, and then an even longer march, toward the castle, where I would fine my own demon, along with the serpent, which I had to defeat.
