Harvesting Earthlings for Fun and Profit will launch December 3. Amazon is now accepting preorders for the ebook which will be delivered to your devices on December 3. Amazon will also be selling the book in paperback and hardcover.
The book is entitled “Harvesting Earthlings for Fun and Profit” and is the sequel to then 2020 novel “It Gives You Strength”. As you may recall, “Strength” followed alien anthropologist Tashan Zho as he traveled to New York in 1926 at the height of Prohibition. In NY, Zho was caught between rival bootleggers fighting for control of the New York to Canada smuggling markets.
In “Harvesting Earthlings for Fun and Profit” it is 1934 and Dr. Zho’s once idyllic planet Dagan is now ruled by a brutal dictator. Zho is now a refugee hiding on the primitive planet Earth to escape Dagan. Of course, in 1934 the United States was in the throes of the Great Depression and Dr. Zho experiences a very different America this trip. The book also builds the world of Zho’s home planet Dagan, where the Dictator Arixn is using an alien version of the Roman Coliseum to divert the attention of the citizens of Dagan from the fact that their civil rights have been severely eroded. Like Strength, “Harvesting Earthlings” is a mashup of historical fiction, science fiction and fantasy. Set in 1934, the fictional characters interact with actual historical characters and events like J. Edgar Hoover, Jack Dempsey, Clark Gable, Edith Cavell, and mobsters John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Baby Face Nelson.
