Hunters of the Holy Tub
 

A Comedy of Belief

Authored by Tony Caganer
Designed by J E Nelson

From a world where the humble washtub used at the Last Supper became the greatest wonder-working relic of all instead of the celebrated cup, comes a Grail Quest unlike any other.

So holy that many believed that a mere glimpse of the Sacred Basin would wipe away all stain of sin, the Holy Tub long aroused the envy of popes and emperors. When its last keepers, the Knights Templar, fell, it vanished - but not forever. Though the knights were burnt swearing that it had been taken back to Heaven, the Sacred Basin haunted their tomb in rare ghostly midnight visions for seven hundred years.

Yet seekers never stopped digging for it. One such long obsessed with the Holy Tub was TV's first scientific showman, Doc MacLantis. When he mysteriously dies, his three adult children are forced to take up the quest to solve the ancient mystery that had so bedeviled him. Gus, Skip, and Allie must contend with hoaxed miracles, bitter rivals, other seekers, crazed fans, secret cults, spies, and even lost loves. Not to mention sex, drugs, and rock and roll. If they succeed, they could redeem their family name - or possibly bring about the End of the World.

HUNTERS OF THE HOLY TUB is a rollicking, genre-mashing comic adventure. It is an epic romp through two thousand years of alternate history, as a contemporary adult religious satire that plays off both ancient faith and modern cynicism. It is also an extended meditation on power, fame, the meaning of the sacred, and the strange and daring things people often believe and do in the hopes of achieving them.
