DOOM MAGNETIC! is a bizarro/sci-fi/western/space opera written by American author William Pauley III. The book was released through NEW FLESH BOOKS in March of 2010. The book is best known for its wildly spastic storytelling, unpredictable plot, and its "mind blowing" conclusion featuring a cameo by British rocker and David Bowie alter ego, Ziggy Stardust.
Chorizo, Nevada is full of dusty streets, gritty men and filthy women - the perfect place for a man chock-full of secrets to hide. But one fateful day, his past catches up to him... A Japanese assassin with a cue-ball eye, who goes by the name of Qoser, invades the town with an army of two-foot eyeless minions who have a taste for human blood. He has two things on his mind – Where is his purple television? And who is the dead man that stole it from him? DOOM MAGNETIC! is a fast-paced sci-fi/western space opera packed full of sex, violence, cosmic voids, vortexes, Coliseum-style combat, genetically-engineered mutant giants, breathy brain whispers, and cigar smoke torture chambers.

“DOOM MAGNETIC! reads like a great Vertigo comic book. Pauley has created a funny and violent world of bizarre SF with larger-than-life characters and all out mayhem.

"Doom Magnetic is a brainbleed of music video Western Kung Fu mayhem which sometimes falls a little short of being coherent but not an even inch short of fun.

But if you are, which you really ought to be, you might want to gi
