The Return of The Big Punch


Friends: Just a heads up that my first novel, The Big Punch, which has been out of print for about ten years, is now available as a Kindle ebook. I’m also happy to announce that it features fantastic new cover art by the wonderfully talented London artist, Del Riche. At the moment the book can be downloaded for just $5.

A few reviews:

“That rare thing, a novel that truly f**ked with my head. A wild, sick freewheeling mixture of eras, people and ideas from a wild imagination.”
—Poppy Z. Brite

“Louis Maistros has an original and dark vision, full of power. The Big Punch is disturbing, visceral, captivating, and shocking.”
—Douglas Clegg

“Maistros is an explosive new talent whose writing reverberates with color and subtle irony. One of the leading conspirators in horror’s newest generation.”
—S.P. Somtow

“The Big Punch is just that—a solid, hard, uppercut of a story that, once started, cannot be stopped. It is a dark, surreal tale of good and evil; classic in its substance but brand new in its form. Louis Maistros is a fresh voice sounding like a seasoned veteran, writing with feeling. The Big Punch is destined to become a classic.”
—Raymond Buckland, author of “Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft” and many others

“If Lewis Carroll, Raymond Chandler and David Cronenberg had got together and decided to write a book, The Big Punch would be the result. If The Big Punch doesn’t give you sleepless nights, nothing will.”
—Gordon Houghton, author of “Damned if You Do” and “The Dinner Party”

“The uniqueness of [The Big Punch] is matched by the author’s style. The atmosphere is charged with noir sensibilities and enough hallucinatory weirdness to rival William S. Burroughs. It’s so strange your brain doesn’t even try to predict where it’s going. All you can do is hang on for the ride. Your reward is the oddest story of apocalypse and redemption to come down the pike in some time. ”

“I found The Big Punch to be a remarkable read, a book I simply could not put down. Maistros has written an apocalyptic novel that offers some rather incredible insights into the human experience.”
—Gary W. Conner, Sinister Element

“The Big Punch soars on the hot-vein creativity of its author’s vision. As a first novel, it signals the arrival of a new talent willing to bend the rules and abandon convention.”
—William D. Gagliani, The Chiarascuro
