Balrog Award 1984, World Fantasy Award nominee 1984.

George R. R. Martin has written the ultimate novel of revolution, rock 'n' roll, and apocalyptic murder. Already a classic, The Armageddon Rag is a stunning novel that portrays not just the end of an era – but the end of the world as we know it...

One-time underground journalist Sandy Blair has come a long way from his radical roots in the '60s – until something unexpectedly draws him back: the bizarre and brutal murder of a rock promoter who made millions with the '60s band the Nazgûl.

Now, as Sandy sets out to investigate the crime, he finds himself drawn back into his own past – a magical mystery tour of the pent-up passions of his generation. For a new messiah has resurrected the Nazgûl and the mad new beat may be more than anyone bargained for – a requiem of demonism, mind control, and death, whose apocalyptic tune only Sandy may be able to change in time...
