The epic Demonworld saga continues in The Pig Devils. Wodan has returned to Haven, but his homeland no longer seems quite like home now that his eyes have been opened by the wasteland.

Pontius, a city in the wasteland ruled by four gangs locked in an eternal orgy of violence, learns of the existence of Haven and its advanced technology. Boris, the Living Scar, plans a crusade to free the people of Haven from their lives of ease and open their hearts to the joys of his ancient, sadistic religion. Mankind has been on the brink of extinction for so long that full-scale war has not been practiced since the time of the Ancients. Now, with the help of the flesh demons, war will return.

Stiff, check out www.kylebstiff.wordpress.com. **About the Author Kyle B. Stiff used to review video games for a living and developed a reputation as an out-of-control maverick because he never once used the phrase "edge of your seat" or claimed that a game would leave the player "breathless". He is hard at work writing and rewriting the various books in two epic series, Demonworld and Heavy Metal Thunder. The first is a post-apocalyptic "hero's journey" through the human condition; the second follows a branching narrative structure that borrows elements from the classic Choose Your Own Adventure and Lone Wolf gamebooks, then updates the genre with quality writing and adult themes. Kyle B. Stiff has been around long enough to know that he knows very little about the world, but he still studies mythology and human behavior because it's fun to make an effort to understand. He currently lives with his soulmate somewhere in Kentucky. But really, is his physical location all that important when he can always be reached at [email protected] or seen at www.kylebstiff.wordpress.com?
