Editorial Reviews

Review

"...fun, adventurous, and thrilling to read. It is action-packed, the conflict is created at the right juncture of the story, and it is beautifully paced..."
ONLINE BOOK CLUB
4 out of 4 stars


"...an astounding and thoroughly consistent picture of a historical era...The book is superlative." -
Astrid Iustulin
READERS FAVORITE


"....a cornucopia of description. The characters feel alive, many of whom are historical figures. The loathing the reader feels for Francois Devol and his awful treatment of slaves is palpable... One wishes for this antagonist to get his comeuppance, and the result of this makes for satisfying reading.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

About the Author

How Can A Man Die Better is Roy V. Gaston's first novel, written after he retired from a career supervising housing units in Ohio prisons. Gaston has had a fascination with the American Civil War since his early elementary school days, after discovering Bruce Catton's American Heritage Picture History of the Civil War and David Greenspan's wonderful battlefield map illustrations. A native of Athens, Ohio and a graduate of Ohio University, his favorite genres are historical fiction, noir, hard boiled, Southern Gothic, alternative history, and westerns. He is fan of Harry Flashman, Hitch and Cole, Gus and Woodrow, Hap and Leonard, Spenser and Hawk, Marty and Rusty, Gravedigger and Coffin Ed, Statler and Waldorf, Buck and Roy, Willie and Waylon, and Conspiracy Theories. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
