Chase the Dragon

by Chris Walter

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Through no real fault of his own, Dragon draws the unwanted attention of several very nasty people in Vancouver’s drug saturated Downtown Eastside. Fearing for his life, the hopeless drug addict flees town on a Greyhound bus, terrified of the people chasing him and nervous about trying to survive elsewhere. To further complicate matters, his erratic behaviour prompts the driver to throw him and a fellow passenger off the bus almost two thousand miles from home. Stuck in a hostile city surrounded by strangers who would rather beat him up than give him the time of day, Dragon can only wait anxiously for the trouble he left behind to catch up. When it does, all hell is sure to break loose.
Description

Populated with unforgettable characters such as a corpselike hitman plagued with OCD, a death metal bassist in serious need of anger management, and an extremely unlucky drug addict, Chase the Dragon is so wickedly entertaining that adjectives such as “crazed, “outrageous,” and “savage,” fail to do it justice. From start to finish, Chase the Dragon is fast-paced and darkly humourous—a story about bad luck, a story about fate, a shitkicking, backslapping, riotously disturbing page-turner guaranteed to leave readers with aching ribs and a slanted view of the world around them. This is more than a novel—this is a hot-blooded rebuttal to everything kind and decent. Let the chase begin.

"Cars screeched to a halt as Dragon made his escape. He reached the other side of the street and dashed past a long stretch of abandoned stores into an alley. With his stick-like limbs pumping furiously, he looked like a frightened waterbug skittering across a pond. Dragon ran so fast that he was more disappointed than startled when steely fingers closed around his collar. Panicking, he broke free and zoomed ahead as if fleeing a forest fire. His life depended on it."

About the author
Chris Walter, a recovering drug addict and hope-to-die punk rocker, began writing purposefully in 1998 after realizing that his life up to that point had been meaningless. His first published novel, Punk Rules OK went largely unnoticed except by detractors, inspiring him to take a DIY approach to the game. With help from his girlfriend who worked at a printing shop, he started GFY Press and began to write, publish, and distribute a steady stream of fiction novels and music biographies. After kicking drugs to the curb in 2001, GFY Press expanded to include unschooled troublemakers Simon Snotface, Stewart Black, and an Australian Drew Gates, drawing further criticism from the established literary industry. More than twenty titles and fourteen years later, Chris Walter and GFY Press remain unrepentant and committed.
