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!).
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? Oh ... forgot to mention ... this book was featured at the 2010 London Book Fair!
