It is our pleasure to introduce an unlikelysource.com associate, author Douglas Alan. Douglas has been a writer since the third grade, when, to the astonishment of his teachers, he wrote the (Elementary School) epic "Silver Chief." In the fourth grade he wrote and illustrated a comic strip entitled "The Time Turner," which regularly decorated the walls of the school. In the fifth grade he published, under the auspices of the school and a perhaps deluded art teacher, another strip, a satire, entitled "Superman and Sappy Man." And it was all downhill from there ... (JUST KIDDING Douglas!).
More recently, D. Alan has published through lulu.com two works of fiction. The first, entitled The End, And Then? is a tongue in cheek look at what might happen when somebody is at the top of his game. The protagonist, Brian Bryant, has a song in the Top 40, a screenplay being reviewed by Steven Spielberg, and is dating a supermodel ... when the End of the World arrives. You can read more about it by clicking here.
His other published work is Further Indications, a densely layered satirical piecewhich revolves around a series of incidents which the narrator labels "further indications." The rollicking group of randy college students charge off on a series of adventures which take them around the world. Through it all the narrator undergoes a life changing event, hits rock bottom, sleeping in a cardboard box on the streets, to finally be reunited with his lost love. The story comes complete with a mad scientist, a couple of interlocking love triangles, aliens, evil beings who want to take over the Earth, ants, robotic girl scouts, and a crazed eccentric who always wears a ski mask. In the end the lovable group is confronted with the question: if you're at the epicenter of an atomic bomb blast ... do you feel any pain? Please check it out by clicking here. Oh ... forgot to mention ... this book was featured at the 2010 London Book Fair!
