Jack Hooknob and the Bluesman
What do a potato headed alien, Nostradamus, and Jack "Hooknob" Bluegill have in common? They are the focal point of earth's pending destruction. It's late 20th century, in the small town of Misery, Missouri, where Jack resides at the Happy Acres Mental Hospital, and fights an uphill battle explaining how his unusual visions can save humanity. It's only when an alien, nicknamed "Bluesman" (for his love of the musical art form) arrives, that Jack's destiny can be realized. Join Jack as he discovers the meaning of his visions and cosmic influences from a 430 year old dead prophet; and rally's his institutionalized posse and quirky townsfolk into a frenzy to save the planet.

About Stephen Frank Vitale
He came to life one cold December day in a Bronx, New York hospital, or so he was told. It's been widely whispered that a barn hatching was more likely. Or perhaps a materialization from the pages of a novel by Mel Brooksenschlagger titled: A Childhood Goofing-Off (for fifty years) explains his existence. He was educated, but none of his instructors are willing to go on record and admit it. Surprisingly, some of the nonsense he did absorb during the academic period of "The Great Suction" does still reside in his sponge. And he is confident that one day it can be squeezed out if absolutely necessary. He currently resides at The Dented Cranium Therapy Ward in Hoho, California where he hopes to graduate soon. His tenure there has allowed him to collect endless biographies of his fellow "students" which has produced the many true-story characters in his published scribbling.
