In his latest novel, Does Harry Dream of Electric Sheep, John Altson has created a social satire similar in thought and content to Jonathan Swift's famous novel. His book is available at Amazon.com in both print and electronic formats. John Altson describes the novel as 'a witty novel written for an adult audience (high-school or beyond)' and 'an allegorical novel written on several levels.' According to Mr. Altson, this novel is: · A fantasy about a space explorer and his comical misadventures with sheep-like creatures which seem to mirror human behavior · A tongue-in cheek comedy about life in the United States, circa 2014 · A serio-comedy which explores almost all of the current social and political issues · A story with a moral Mr. Altson describes the novel as a work in four sections, similar to sections in Gulliver's Travels. The main character is Harry Enlightenment, a quack psychiatrist ('healer') who wants to be the first earthling to set up a practice on an alien planet. I. Harry arrives on Planet Baa. In this section, Harry meets with a number of the locals while learning about their divisions by sect. He attends a congressional session, listening to the debates on many issues. He is an honored guest on the Baabaa Show and then plans his visit with a member of congress, to Mesa View, the land of the Technobirds. II. Harry, with his escorts, tours Mesa View and is treated to a series of weird and comical technical innovations. At the conclusion of his tour, he is accused of stealing technology and banished from the island. III. Again with his escorts, Harry tours Corporus, the land of the (corporate giant) Ohmys. His stated purpose is to look for potential trade agreements but, in reality, he is just on an expenses-paid spree to learn the culture in advance of his healing practice. His tour includes such enterprises as (the equivalent of): Ralph Lauren, Pepsico, Dow Chemicals, Campbell Soups, General Motors ... many more. At the trip's conclusion, it is apparent to the host congressman that Harry was really on a boondoggle and he is banished to Nowhereland, the island for criminals and misfits. IV. On Nowhereland and with some unexpected help from the Holies, Harry is given a challenge: If he can reform four out of the eight worst criminals, he will be given his freedom to return home. This is not an easy task as he must reform Attila the Hun, Caligula, Hitler, Lizzy Borden and four others. There have already been several positive reviews, among them this quote from science-fiction author Jack Powell: 'From the 'Where to begin? In the beginning, I suppose' to the last line of 'I belong here after all.' John has created a complete and complex world like none you have ever known. And, really never expected to know. It's hard to decide whether this is a treatise on accepting others as they are, or a political expose on our own troubled times. By the end you will know which. Read this book with your tongue pushed firmly into your cheek.

Now on stage at The Players' Guild of Dearborn is the wonderful musical comedy SPAMALOT. Set sometime in the early middle ages, this highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend is bursting with wit. The opening act is theatre of the absurd in all its glory, when the villagers mistake the word Finland for England, and begin dancing and singing some outrageous 'slap the mayor in the face with a big fish' routine. Having Finnish blood, and Anglo-Scandinavian heritage, in general, I found this twisted plot deliciously insane, because I know people who would actually get the two places confused, and others who believe Scandinavians toss fish around at celebrations. Well, maybe some Scandinavians do, but that's another story all unto itself.

Bryce Cullen Publishing is excited to announce the release of Teri Schure's debut novel, 'Our Romantic Getaway.' Ms. Schure is the founder of worldpress.org, an international news website; a journalist; and a publishing and marketing consultant. With many articles and short stories appearing in various newspapers and magazines, it was only a matter of time before Ms. Schure had a novel-length tale to tell. 'Our Romantic Getaway' explores what happens when, due to an overbooking, one married couple's planned trip to a wholesome and relaxing vacation destination gets switched to a sex-crazed Mexican resort named Exotica. What was supposed to be a restful, romantic getaway turns out to be an experience straight out of the movie Caligula. But, after the initial shock of the clothing-optional environment wears off, the seven-day excursion turns into an exhilarating time and a journey of self-discovery and transformation. 'Our Romantic Getaway' is available in print and ebook at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and can also be ordered from most major booksellers. Ms. Schure is available for interviews and media appearances, as well as book signings and readings via tschure@terischure.com.
