Title: QuipTracks' Kevin Bowersox and Ice on Mars' Michael T Bradley have an audiobook
Post by: Quirk on June 10, 2014, 09:03:57 AM
For the past several years, my father has been writing and polishing his sci-fi comedy novel Tales of the Incorrigible: Flummox or Bust (http://www.amazon.com/Tales-Incorrigible-Flummox-Kevin-Bowersox/dp/149109110X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1402414833&sr=8-2&keywords=tales+of+the+incorrigible). He published it with CreateSpace last November with cover art by myself and AsbestosBill (Tristan of QuipTracks).

Soon afterwards, work began on an audiobook version with the extremely talented Michael T Bradley, the head of the riffing group Ice on Mars and a former member of these forums. Well, it's out now, and you can hear a sample of it HERE (http://www.amazon.com/Tales-Incorrigible-Flummox-Bust/dp/B00KVM35KO/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1402349627&sr=8-2&keywords=flummox+or+bust).

I personally recommend the book to any fan of Futurama, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, or sci-fi and fun in general. I'm posting about it here because it seems right up this forum's alley. It's crammed with sci-fi references, and MST3K fans will find a major plot point especially entertaining. Here's the synopsis:

"It is so far into the future that Oprah's papacy is but a bizarre footnote in the history books. The invention of the Flitzdrive has shrunk the mind-numbing magnitude of the galaxy down to less than a year's travel from edge to edge. Thousands of sentient races that once didn't know each other existed now intermingle and irritate one another on a regular basis...

When the most notorious space pirate that ever lived disappeared for the final time, his ship was rumored to carry a plunder of legendary worth. So when the crew of the starship Incorrigible gain a clue to that ship's location, it begins a star-spanning quest battling the forces of nature, time, space, and society--not to mention nettlesome outbreaks of sex--to retrieve it.



It is all waiting for you aboard the Incorrigible."

Oh yeah, I never got around to reading that. I'll probably just check out the audiobook, since I can listen while I walk.

Technically I'm still a current member of the forum; it's more like I'm a former head of Ice on Mars. Though ... there are things in the pipeline ... uhhh ... probably.
