WEST OF VALHALLA
AN EROTIC SUSPENSE THRILLER

Arch Tasker has everything he ever wanted in his life except the one most important thing. He's a multi-millionaire with a grand home, a collection of fine cars, rare and valuable art donning the walls of his palatial mansion, and above all the love of his life as his wife. There's only one problem: Arch's wife, Susan, has contracted an amoeba that has virtually destroyed her mind, and now she sits in a vegetative state in the home they share under the care of a twenty-four hour nurse, and Arch's existence has become one of isolation and continual pain.

Into his life, seemingly from nowhere, comes Erin Cloud Shadow Smith, the sole daughter of a Lipan Apache mother and Scotch-Irish itinerant farmer. The sad tale of her life thus far, told in the course of a single night in a late-night diner, cements the two of them together. Erin is younger than Arch by ten years, she is single, and at loose ends with herself and existence. But it becomes apparent that she needs him as much as he needs her. Thus begins their rise into the heavens of erotic ecstasy and their ultimate fall down into the abyss of tragedy as the overwhelming factors that stand in their way—unmitigated hate, self-loathing, jealousy, and the darkest of betrayals—seek to destroy them both, whether separately or together.

This is a frank but disturbing tale of desire, need, and unbridled raw emotion. It is also a story about what it essentially means to be human.

NeptunesForge_1.jpg
NEPTUNE'S FORGE
AN ANTARCTIC MYSTERY

Twenty-three men and thirty-six sled dogs travel to Antarctica aboard a sailing ship converted to steamer in the year 1888, ostensibly to find the South Pole. During the trek across the frozen wastes they begin dying grisly deaths one by one at the hands on an apparent madman and when the goal of the quest appears to be other than the South Pole, conspiracy and mutiny are the dinner guests. In a hot-blooded and at times searing cold 19th Century voice, George Wier populates a historically accurate setting with flesh-and-blood desperate men in a deft and breathless yarn. In Neptune’s Forge you can taste the whale blubber, smell the burning coal-oil and feel the biting cold. And like Antarctica itself, this one’s not for the faint-of-heart.

Errant Knight by George Wier

ERRANT KNIGHT

A Mystery

 

Ten years ago, Shelby Knight turned in his badge and put his gun under glass. Since that time there hasn’t been a day he hasn’t replayed the shooting death of Aiden Holloway in his mind. When a man kills another man, it changes him forever on the inside. While lost and adrift amid the pieces of his unreconstructed life, Knight is brought in for questioning regarding a recent murder. His own gun has been used in a cold-blooded killing—the ballistics match, he has no alibi, and the police brotherhood of which he was once a well-loved and respected member is now out to nail him to the wall.

Long after the press has dubbed him “The Black Knight,” Shelby takes the fight for his life to the streets in the persona of a self-styled vigilante complete with armor, shield and sword. Only from behind the protection and anonymity of a medieval steel shell can he discover the truth before the killer strikes yet again. But what are these disturbing dreams where he’s killing people he’s never met? Is his only friend the killer? Is it a conspiracy? Or is there a hidden, darker half of himself that takes pleasure in bloodshed?

Sentinel in Elysium by George Wier

SENTINEL IN ELYSIUM

A Mystery

 

It’s 1975, two years before the murder of Delores Fogel shocked the Central Texas town of Elysium, setting up the chain of events that would lead to the post-millennium conclusion to the mystery in Murder In Elysium. Michael Lee “Mucho Love” Harper, Elysium’s Chief of Police, has a double-murder on his hands–but this is the strangest killing of his career. The Childresses were wealthy and they had their fingers in every slice of local pie. They were, however, hermits, hoarders, and the owners of a chain of funeral parlors that stretched from the Gulf Coast to El Paso. Mucho Love, Elysium’s sentinel, must delve into the minds of the killer and the victims if he intends to keep his job–a monumental task, because the powers-that-be want anything but a resolution.

Murder In Elysium by George Wier

MURDER IN ELYSIUM

A Mystery

 

ACCOLADES FOR MURDER IN ELYSIUM:

 

“The small Texas town of Elysium isn’t a happy place. Shane Robeling, the chief of police, has had a hand in the release of a man convicted of murder nearly thirty years ago. When the man returns to town, resentments flare, old secrets are exposed, and trouble follows. Lots of trouble. The pace is fast, the characters could be your Texas neighbors, and  George Wier has another winner. Check it out.”
—Bill Crider, author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes Mysteries.


“George Wier has done it again! Murder in Elysium is the multi-layered, dark tale of a decades old murder in this small, picturesque Texas town. Police Chief Shane Robeling still searches for the killer, and his association with Elysium is…complicated. Razor sharp, distinctive characters and a wicked, twisting storyline; these are Wier’s forte, and he is at the top of his game in this tale of murder, secrets, and lies in a town whose surface beauty hides both violence and depravity underneath.”
—Billy Kring, author of the Hunter Kincaid mystery series.

“There’s a reason George Wier ranks among my favorite authors. The man is a first class storyteller who never fails to entertain me with his captivating tales of Texas intrigue and mystery. He’s done it again with Murder in Elysium, the story of an old murder in a small town where secrets and betrayal lurk just below the calm surface, and you never know what skeletons hang in the closets of the folks you nod to on Main Street or sit next to at the counter of the diner. Don’t start this book until you have time to read it all the way through because like all of Wier’s books, you won’t be able to put it down!”
—Nick Russell, Author of the Big Lake mystery series.

“George Wier writes the kind of mysteries that make you skip the chores or forget what's on TV, because you just want to read one more chapter. Then another. Add Murder in Elysium to that list. If you haven't discovered Wier yet, you’re in luck, because he has more than a dozen novels waiting to keep you entertained.”
—Ben Rehder, Author of the Blanco County mystery series.

“The rot that lies beneath the veneer of small-town friendliness is George Wier’s fodder in his masterful Murder In Elysium. In Shane Robeling, he has a detective that should be the replacement on the sad day that Bill Travis (of The Bill Travis Mysteries) finally has his last adventure. With enough clues to point to any and everyone, this mystery will keep you guessing until the final chilling reveal.”
—Robert A. Taylor, Author of Warp and The Lascaux Nightmare, and the creator of Today In Alternate History.

FINALIST, 2015 KINDLE BOOK AWARD!

 

It’s murder in paradise.

Who killed local debutante Delores Fogel in the sleepy, Central Texas town of Elysium? Benjamin LeFren was exonerated for the crime and released from jail thirty years after the fact, thanks in part to Shane Robeling, former FBI Agent and now Elysium’s Chief of Police. But now Shane is not so sure of LeFren’s innocence. When LeFren shows up in Elysium, Shane must now guard the supposed monster from the townspeople he has sworn to protect, and the only way to do that is to hire him as his ranch foreman, thus—in theory—keeping him out of harm’s way. But then the psychological warfare begins. As the local death toll begins to mount, Shane must discover whether it is LeFren carrying out the killings, an old accomplice, or a sinister conspiracy thirty years dead and gone.

1889: Journey To The Moon by George Wier

1889: JOURNEY TO THE MOON

The first book of
THE FAR JOURNEY CHRONICLES

 

It's 1889, and eleven people are on a strange steam-powered spaceship to the Moon. Included in the crew are such unlikely passengers and crew as: Billy The Kid, Nikola Tesla, Jack The Ripper, a Sioux warrior out for the blood of George Armstrong Custer (who did not die at the Little Bighorn), a Cossack warrior-princess, a battery of robots, a half-man and half-cyborg engineer, a Punjabi mathematician and linguist, a big-game hunter from Africa, and the grandson of Blackbeard the Pirate, not to mention the genius who designed the ship. There are aliens on the Moon with evil intentions, the robots are wound a little too tightly, and no one knows that the Ripper is along for the ride except for the Londoner himself.

 

What could possibly go wrong?

 

This book has been co-authored with Billy Kring, a South Texas mystery-thriller and western author. Look him up here!

 

The sequel, 1899: Journey to Mars, is currently being written.

 

ACCOLADES FOR 1889: JOURNEY TO THE MOON:


Kring & Wier vault to the head of the burgeoning steampunk genre with this hyper-extrapolated, richly detailed saga. Every nut and bolt is tightened in place, and the cast of characters is a rogue's gallery of 19th Century mad scentists, outlaws and adventurers. I haven't had this much fun going to the Moon since H. G. Wells sent Bedford and Cavor into the sky.
K. W. Jeter, author of Infernal Devices and Fiendish Schemes.

Reads in the best way like a lost Jules Verne and H.G. Wells collaboration. Sense of wonder and the magic of great storytelling drive this fast-paced, steam-driven tale to a stunning conclusion with some adventurous stops along the way.
Joe R. Lansdale, author of Cold in July and The Bottoms.

1889: Journey to the Moon is a rip-roaring steampunk thrill-ride with a wonderful cast of characters. Bring on the sequel!
Bill Crider, author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes Mysteries.

Kring and George Wier elevate the Steampunk genre to its pinnacle in 1889: Journey to the Moon. More than Verne, more than Wells, these two have created a thrill-a-minute adventure with a menagerie of unlikely characters, such as Billy the Kid, Nikola Tesla, George Custer and so many others. And what's truly amazing, the science is plausible! This book will astound and entertain. Add in the special bonus of authentic language, dress and mannerisms, and you have the makings for a classic SF/steampunk novel that will go down in history—or rewrite it!
T.R. Harris, author of The Fringe Worlds

1899: Journey To Mars by George Wier

1899: JOURNEY TO MARS

A Steampunk Novel
By Billy Kring and George Wier

 

It’s been ten years since the ill-fated voyage of the Arcadia to the Moon. In that time, Billy and Ekka have married and raised their son, Dakota. But Billy Gostman—once known as Billy The Kid—has done anything but settle down. Billy’s eyes have been on the night sky and his thoughts have been on rescuing the last survivor of the Arcadia expedition, John Koothrappally. But agents from governments around the world are scrambling for the secret of the incredible space-faring ship, and will stop at nothing. When Pat Garrett shows up in Waco to question Billy at the behest of President McKinley, the agents of a secret world power close in with their deadly clones and Westinghouse robot. Billy, Ekka, Dakota, and Pat—along with their own Tesla Guardian Ultra 3 robot (or “Guthrie”, for short), must first rescue an old friend on Ceylon from execution before charging once again into the ether aboard Billy’s new ship, Argent—with Mars as their destination! Along the way they pick up former Captain John Carter (C.S.A) and his sidekick Ian, and Bixie Cottontree, a voodoo priestess and seer. It’s war in space and an even greater war on the distant world named for the God of War himself. And this time, the odds are even longer.

Long Fall From Heaven by George Wier and Milton T. Burton
LONG FALL FROM HEAVEN

ISBN-978-1-935955-52-8

Cueball Boland and Micah Lanscomb—both ex-cops with troubled pasts—stumble into the path of a serial killer. The murderer leads them into the dark history of Galveston when the city was Texas’ Sin City. The killer has roots sunk deep into that history, but the FBI and the old Galveston families don’t want Cueball and Micah to solve the crimes. Listen closely. There’s an echo of another serial killer who stalked the city back during World War II.

With an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the historic underbelly of Galveston and a ringing feel for dialogue, Long Fall From Heaven carries us along on a sordid yet seamless narrative of murderous mayhem.​

Craig Johnson, author of the Walt Longmire Mysteries, the basis for A&E's hit series Longmire.

Dark and violent as a Gulf storm, Long Fall from Heaven shows us a Galveston full of fascinating characters, secrets, and conspiracies.  Cueball and Michah are a team readers can root for.

Bill Crider, author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes Mysteries.​​



Rich in history, Wier and Burton evoke the Galveston I knew from my days with the Galveston News in the 1960s.Bill Hobby, former Lieutenant Governor of Texas

 

Long Fall From Heaven has everything you want in a Texas crime novel---dark history, dry wit, characters that are both larger than life and believable, and a true voice. Micah Lanscomb and Cueball Boland may become, like McMurtry's Gus and Call, true legends of Texas fiction. I hope Wier makes their exploits into a series we can be reading for years to come.Scott Montgomery, BookPeople/MysteryPeople

The Last Call: Bill Travis Mystery #1 by George Wier
THE LAST CALL - A Bill Travis Mystery #1​

ISBN-13-987-1467917100

ISBN-10-1467917109

Bill Travis believes that he may not live the most exciting of lives, yet when Julie Simmons steals two million dollars from North Texas quarter horse racer and illegal liquor baron Archie Carpin, the last of a dynasty of criminals from the 1920's, thus ensues a chase across the Lone Star State to recover the money. Carpin's cohorts may seem simple-minded, yet their penchant for sniper rifles and high-explosives makes for a reckless and deadly quarry. Yet, through all this action the compelling tale of another mystery--the 80-year unclosed missing-persons file of a U.S. Marshall--begins to unravel.

The Last Call starts with a protagonist on the edge of an impending midlife crisis. Add a blond and an old friend with a fetish for high explosives, and you have the kickoff of a first-rate crime novel. George Wier writes with wit, verve, and a gut-bucket knowledge of Texas and those who people its quirky underside. This book does not disappoint.

Milton T. Burton, author of These Mortal Remains.

​George Wier's The Last Call has it all: a great setting, characters you care about, a little Texas history, and a twisty plot that's built Texas tough. Get it before last call!

Bill Travis is overdue to take his wife on a getaway vacation, and with two tickets for a tour of the Central Texas wine country in hand (bought to assuage his biting conscience) Julie accompanies him on the trip. It just so happens, however, that Bill is also interested in an unsolved murder at a winery near Trantor's Crossing. Thus begins the bus trip of a lifetime with a gruff female bus driver at the wheel and a coterie of bored couples with time on their hands and an unquenchable thirst for alcohol made in Texas vineyards. But around Bill Travis the action can get a little intense, particularly when someone doesn't want him to press the issue any further. Ensues more fist fights, shootouts, helicopter assaults, and even confrontations with a deadly motorcycle gang than anything Bill Travis has ever encountered before.

With heart-pounding action seeping from every wine-stained page, Reveille In Red is the sixteenth (and much overdue) installment of the popular Bill Travis Mystery series.
