Nazis & Heroes & Warlocks, OH MY!

Just stumbled across the synopsis of this novel, Bitter Seeds, by Ian Tregillis and I’ve got to say? Interest is piqued! It sounds exactly the kind of anachronistic ludicrous that I enjoy:

Raybould Marsh is a British secret agent in the early days of the Second World War, haunted by something strange he saw on a mission during the Spanish Civil War: a German woman with wires going into her head who looked at him as if she knew him. When the Nazis start running missions with people who have unnatural abilities a woman who can turn invisible, a man who can walk through walls, and the woman Marsh saw in Spain who can use her knowledge of the future to twist the present Marsh is the man who has to face them. He rallies the secret warlocks of Britain to hold the impending invasion at bay. But magic always exacts a price. Eventually, the sacrifice necessary to defeat the enemy will be as terrible as outright loss would be.

WILL be going on ma amazon.com wishlist that’s for sure.

One thing I’m completely confused about? The rather substantial uselessness of the actual bitter seeds website. O_O Its some stuff thrown together in Photoshop with some links to where they buy the book. Not even any blurbs or useful searchable information. O_O;; WHY DOES IT EXIST?! Not the correct kind of ludicrous, unfortunately…
