Mortimer Tate knew both his marriage and the world was coming to an end, so he found a cave, stocked it, and holed up in it for nine years. Now he's ready to hit the town, and has decided he wants to find his wife. He's first accosted and robbed by a bear-man, then saved by a cowboy named Buffalo Bill. Wandering into Spring City, Bill takes Mortimer to Joey Armageddon's Sassy A-Go-Go. Apparently, Joey Armageddon's is the only chain left in the bombed out, busted up new world. The only place where there's still a bar, food service, hotel service, and scantily clad dancing women. They even make their own Armageddon dollars.

Mortimer's stash of goodies earns him a Joey Armageddon's Platinum Card, so he's treated like royalty by the establishment. He's relaxed and treated well at Joey Armageddon's, but still feels the need to find his wife. So he's off on the "muscle express" to Chattanooga.

Mortimer's adventures never stop, encountering The Red Stripes, Mother Lola (a transvestite that runs the mental asylum for women), cannibals, The Stone Mountain Goats, and more. He travels from one peril to another with cohorts Buffalo Bill and Sheila, the girl they saved from the bear-man. After their many amazing feats making it to Chattanooga, Mortimer meets Joey Armageddon face to face. Joey has a proposal, he wants Mortimer to kill his archrival, the Red Czar of The Red Stripes faction.

'Go-Go Girls Of The Apocalypse' is a fantastic, entertaining read. There's fast-paced action and nonstop fun all along the way. From Mortimer's emergence until the ultimate stand-off between the two factions where the winner will take all, you won't be able to put it down. If you want a lighter-side read of the apocalypse that's both tense and side-splittingly funny, then this is the book for you. I could see this novel spinning off into an excellent B horror film. Gischler has written a winner. Highly recommended. Enjoy!
