    Ken Carman's new book, Autocide

    In the interests of promoting member's works, I'd like to point to a new advertisement on the Volconvo home page for Ken Carman's book Autocide.



    Overview

    The auto industry as it could have been...

    The year is 2020 and Detective Ben Rengale has a problem. OK, several problems. There's a murder at the second biggest automaker in the world and he's been sent there to investigate. Ben dislikes large corporations, and is very suspicious regarding how they survived the 50s and the 60s. Ben is a bit of a conspiracy fan, as well as very obnoxious, quite offensive and finds jokes during the most inappropriate times and situations.

    More problems: Ben thinks someone may be following him, and to investigate this murder he has to go see someone he'd rather kill than see.

    Actual historical characters and events blend in with models of cars that were, and could of been. Expect the unexpected as the author and the characters interact, ghosts appear and flashbacks in the form of interludes fill in the stories beneath the story.

    A fun read.

    Now we're in business! Here's a similar idea; A story about classic rock records that don't exist, but exist in an alternate universe.

    Wasn't that kind of a small sub plot revealed at the end of the movie Hot Tub Time Machine?

    Thanks! It's been a fun, weird, tough 3 year adventure. I found out I LOVE to write. Editing myself? YACK! There must come a time when the baby must leave the nest and, hopefully, fly...

    For those who get the E-book I do have a PDF filled with fun pics. Easier than trying to trace down rights to every one of the buggers. Common net images, or taken by moi', but most sites have no idea where THEY got the image from!
