Reading with Eric Scott Fischl
Eric Scott Fischl writes novels of speculative historical fiction and the supernatural. He lives in Montana's Bitterroot mountains. Eric Scott Fischl will be at Auntie's to read from his soon-to-be released novel Dr. Potter's Medicine Show.
The year is 1878.
Dr Alexander Potter, disgraced Civil War surgeon, now snake-oil salesman, travels the Pacific Northwest with a disheartened company of strongmen, fortune-tellers, and musical whores. Under their mysterious and murderous leader they entertain the masses while hawking the Chock-a-saw Sagwa Tonic, a vital elixir touted to cure all ills both physical and spiritual. For a few unfortunate customers, however, the Sagwa offers something much, much worse.
