Posted on | November 10, 2014 | No Comments

YouTube makes Movie Vaporware the new everyman’s tribute for Cult followings. However my friend Eliott Glasser is not just any man! Here again is the wonderful little preview he made a while back of the movie that will never be made from my novel Charon’s Ark. Thank you Eliott, may you become famous and rich.

For anyone who is curious, this video refers to the novel Charon’s Ark, which you can get from Amazon.com. It’s a science fiction adventure about a bunch of high school students whose airliner is hijacked by aliens.

Still gets me all choked up.

Ancient Egyptian Beer Brewer

Posted on | January 8, 2014 | No Comments

Mogo tells me that he’s overjoyed to hear that a few scraps of his old buddy Khonso-Im-Heb were found when archeologists discovered his tomb in Egypt. Khonso was the biggest beer brewer of his time when Mogo was the biggest beer drinker of HIS time. And great times they were! Mogo knew Khonso when his brewery was a one-jar operation in an alley behind the mummy works in Luxor. They knew Moses. One time Mogo and Khonso had to carry Moses back to the palace. All three were drunk as dung beetles, and Moses had to come back for his chariot and horses the next day. Moses told the two friends that he was planning to grow a beard and become Hebrewish, and was going to go on an exodus, and did they want to come. Mogo and Khonso laughed about that for years but Mogo later regretted it. He said he could’ve had a speaking part in the Old Testiment if he’d said yes. Mogo tells me that he felt guilty when he read that Khonso’s tomb was “discovered.” last year. He admitted he went to Khonso’s funeral beer bust but Mogo got so drunk he forgot where it was located which is why it had to be “discovered.” Here’s the article:


Charon’s Ark Trilogy Goes Digital

Posted on | April 2, 2013 | No Comments

Balzac said that there’s no friend like a reader, and he was right. Thanks to everyone for favorable comments about Charon’s Ark. Volumes 2 and 3 of the Charon’s Ark tale are called Charon’s Children and Charon Is Coming. I hate multi-volume sci-fi novels, but my publisher bribed me into wrapping up the story. All three volumes of the Charon’s Ark “epic” contain all of my favorite things: Spaceships, aliens, robots, dinosaurs, brash adolescents, and sexy nice girls in their summer underthings. Read ’em and meet the Bigbirds, land a UFO in Seattle, shoot it out with the Proctor, watch Chela rob a bank and steal a truck, and see Eva not get what she deserves!

All three volumes of the Trilogy are now online as kindle downloads:
Charon’s Ark
Charon’s Children
Charon Is Coming

A planeload of high-school students, their teacher, and the airliner’s crew are hijacked in midair by an alien spacecraft. The aliens take them to their crazily-malfunctioning starship Ark, which we know as the planet Pluto and its moon Charon.

You can read the first chapter online at Amazon (just click on the cover image). Hope you like it enough to download it!
