I have been looking forward to reading this book but my early review copy that was supposed to get here while I was at FenCon didn’t make it in time. But this is the release week so I’m plugging anyway!
This is book 3 in a series of fun alternate histories where George Armstrong Custer lives and goes on a wacky series of adventures.
Armstrong and the Mexican Mystery
More fantastical than Harry Turtledove, funnier than Eric Flint, and with definite shades of The Wild, Wild West, the celebrated Custer of the West series—praised by Winston Groom (Forrest Gump), Stephen Coonts (The Flight of the Intruder), and Rob Long (Cheers)—comes to its shocking—and hilarious—climax as George Armstrong Custer, surprise survivor of the Battle of the Little Bighorn, unearths the lost civilization of Atlantis and battles the evil Atlanteans for the fate of the world.
NEVER FEAR—ARMSTRONG IS HERE!
A mysterious gunman meets Marshal Armstrong in San Francisco with tales of lost gold, unrequited revenge, and an unsolved mystery in Mexico’s Chihuahuan Desert, inspiring Marshal Armstrong, Ambrose Bierce, and the rest of Armstrong’s loose band of soldiers of fortune to plunge into an adventure of fierce gunfights, criminal conspiracies, an innovative submarine, and an underground, secret superpower—the remnants of Atlantis—that aims to subvert Western civilization!
Can the malevolent, scheming Atlanteans be stopped?
That’s the mission for George Armstrong Custer, traveling incognito as Marshal Armstrong Armstrong, knight-errant.
Full of suspense, non-stop action, chivalric romance, and effervescent humor, this is a great place to enter the Custer of the West series!

Ha! I’ll have to look into those. They remind me of the Flashman series by George MacDonald Fraser.
I’d forgotten about Flashman. Looking for things to read and since I’m generally OK with rereading good books, and since it’s been years, I’ll dig back. And check out the recommendation above. I cancelled my Kindle Unlimited because I’d run out of new stuff to read. Figured I’d wait until I had another decently long list. Might be time to dive back in.
So, have you read it, yet?
