Yeah, I'm finding that hard to believe too, but I'm happy to say our spotlights are filled up for quite sometime with new authors, like the one we have today, as well as old friends with new books!
About the book:
This book is written in the format of a movie script to give the readers the feeling that they are watching a dramatic motion picture, along with the corny movie clichés. Orville Pressfit, elderly aircraft mechanic, reports to a television station in
CLOSE ON TV SCREEN
The screen shows Leanne standing next to Orville. She is looking at the camera with a very sober expression.
LEANNE: I am here with Orville Pressfit, an aircraft mechanic at the Eagle’s Nest airport. Mister Pressfit reported to our station – exclusively – that he had been abducted by space aliens last night. Please describe for our viewers, mister Pressfit, exactly what happened.
Leanne turns and faces Orville. She holds the microphone near his mouth.
ORVILLE: I was working here late when the alien ship came over. It was about nine p.m. and the landing strip was officially closed. I was finishing up replacing some spark plugs in that Cessna over there when this huge round dome – I guess you’d call it that – landed. Right there!
The TV camera moves away from Orville to show the area on the apron to which he is pointing. There is nothing to see.
ORVILLE (off-screen): A hatch opened, and three aliens came out and walked up to me. They watched what I was doing for a few minutes, looked into some kind of book, and said a couple of words. It sounded like English, but I couldn’t understand. One grabbed my shoulder, pointed at the open hatch in the dome, and pulled me toward it.
The TV camera pans back to Leanne and Orville.
LEANNE: Would you describe these creatures as small, with bulbous heads, and large, dark, ovoid eyes? You know – the appearance we’ve heard described by previous abductees.
ORVILLE: Shoot! I wouldn’t call them creatures. And no, they didn’t have bulbs for heads, and they didn’t have dark avoiding eyes. They looked straight at me. They were just guys! They looked like you and me. Well, not like you.
BACK TO SCENE
Anna, Harold, Ray, and dozens of other shoppers in the department store stare up at the bank of television sets, aghast.
ANNA: Oh, my God, Harold! We’ve got aliens right here in
