What the Audio Fans are Saying...
Ace Tucker is a man who was raised in outer space and taught how to be human by a Russian cyborg chimpanzee. He earns a living as a rock-and-roll roadie and cargo hauler for the greatest band in the galaxy, Mustache Supernova. His world is turned upside down the night he meets Elvis Presley, the very not-dead King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. After Ace saves Elvis from an alien assassin he must travel to Memphis, Tennessee to restore Presley’s health. But things are not what they seem at Elvis’s pastoral home, Graceland. There, Ace makes a discovery that has the power to shape the future (and potentially undo the past). Readers all across the galaxy agree it’s the “funniest story since Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy!” Time Travel Times gushes, “Screw relativity. This story is a quantum leap for humorous science fiction.” Alternate History Monthly raves, “Elvis Presley lives! A Punk Rock-loving chimp is side kicking for a lowbrow trucker! A foul-mouthed talking Basset Hound guards a secret time machine! I want to live in this alternate universe!”

As if that wasn’t unexpected enough, Ace and the gang also got a sweet new gig working for the Temporal Continuity Bureau (T.C.B.), the Galactic Union’s very own time-traveling police force. However, before the crew could get into the thick of it as fully licensed, bonded, and insured T.C.B. agents, they had some dues to pay…

* It’s like riding a TRAM in MONTANA. You smack those two words together and your get, “Tramontana.” But my family rushes our pronunciation and sometimes the “o” sound more like an “eh” sound. Like, “Tram-EN-tana.” Just remember: it’s like riding a TRAM in MONTANA and you gotta smush that “M” between the two. Make sense?
