John’s Motorcycle and Rare Book Disposal, logo by Tres Miller

From time to time, we actually get our act together and publish a book.  It’s not an easy process, primarily because we each have our own peculiarities.  We wouldn’t be able to keep publishing without generous support from John’s Motorcycle Storage and Rare Book Disposal of Long Island and readers like you. Thank you.

Below are our humble offerings.

Book Summary:  A disjointed journey through a long list of wars and refugee catastrophes with everything you probably don’t want to know about.  Sex, drugs, drinking, gambling, death, dying, and destruction.  Never carry a gun, always act innocent, and keep questions to a minimum because eventually you may not like the answers.  Emergency refugee relief from the mud up.  The big birds at Oxfam and the UN would not approve.

Book Summary:  Fructus Autumni Auctorum is a duology containing re-written editions of Taxicab to Wichita and Bus Back to Omaha.

“Taxicab to Wichita is an epic of the senses, exploring uncharted regions of writing in a way that will stir your mind and challenge your heart” —Colm Herron, author of Further Adventures of James Joyce and For I Have Sinned. “A hallucinogenic forest stream of the mind. At its heart, this book is an existential and meta-fictional riff on self-doubt and guilt, but let us not despair, it is also funny and ironic. If you love a good trip, Bus Back to Omaha travels well.” —Duke Miller, author of Living and Dying with Dogs, and Malverde Days.
