A book signing at the Raven? How appropriate. We’ll be featuring the science fiction novel “Short Fuse” by Brent D. Seth on Saturday, July 25th from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Seth, originally from Illinois, now lives in Michigan with his husband and several spoiled cats. Seth is a self-proclaimed “daydreamer, procrastinator, drinker, smoker and all around fun guy.” He remembered a TV broadcast showing the surface of Mars as a child and being instantly curious about space. He has extensive retail experience, so he knows a good deal about aliens.
Short Fuse’s main character is Jason Miller, overweight and over-the-hill, on the road to nowhere, with only his cat Leo, for companionship. Life goes from bad to worse when Jason rear-ends a police car. With his car totaled, a large angry cop about to write him a ticket that will cost a month’s salary, Jason gets a lucky break when a brightly lit Christmas tree suddenly falls out of the sky. At least it looked like a Christmas tree…
Waking up in a strange place, he and his companions soon discover they’re to be used as expendable conscripts in an interstellar war. Jason must elude hostile aliens and win a galactic war before they’re all blown to bits. The fuse has been lit, and time is running out!
