This novel will rip out your pineal gland with tragedy and poetry both, from the gut-wrenching chapter one to the cosmic climax. WHAT IMMORTAL HAND is a tale that could only have been written by the spiritual love child of Tim Powers and Hunter S. Thompson . . . thank Kali for the ruinous genius of Johnny Worthen.
— D.J. Butler, author of WITCHY EYE
Johnny Worthen has a vision. In his novel, What Immortal Hand, he delivers this vision in a well-written, fascinating take on what compels us to do evil, and what we will do to attain redemption of any sort. Fascinating, driving, thoughtful, with deft characterizations and lean writing. Get it.

Worthen shows himself a master of style and substance, creating dreams as evanescent as dew, nightmares as grim as death. What Immortal Hand is kaleidoscopic and macroscopic, visionary and visceral, stark and opulent in language and setting. Few writers would have the courage to flay a human soul so thoroughly, so openly, as Worthen does in limning Michael Oswald’s desperate flirtations with death and madness.

One hell of a weird story! Surreal and spellbinding. Johnny Worthen’s _What Immortal Hand_ is the darkest tale I’ve read in a long time.
