BIGCITY: A Novel by Scot Sothern

Stalking Horse Press
Trade Paperback
Publishing March 2017

Scot Sothern’s profane western satire BIGCITY, is a novel with an unforgettable cast, including the wild Bitch Bantam, pulp writer Slab Pettibone, and his sidekick FuzzyWuzzy the bear in a tale as moving as it is scandalous. BIGCITY is the birth of feminism, robber barons, media stardom, and motion pictures, where teeming masses have come for a new life and a throw of the dice; with gritty realism and absurdist comedy, BIGCITY is a fantastical adventure and love story examining the dynamics of change and the politics of natural selection.
