Just returned from Geneva, Switzerland, where I was given the honor of switching on the Large Hadron Collider for its next round of experiments. Little did I know my arch-rival, Stephen Hawking, would also be there, hogging the limelight as he always does.
Naturally, one thing led to another, and before long Stephen and I got into a shoving match (Stephen kept referring to the machine as the Large Hard-On Collider -- real mature, Steve), and he pushed me into the control panel, which of course short-circuited everything and killed three janitors still working inside the collider.
I regret my actions now, but goddamn it, it was all Stephen’s fault, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to pay for a new Large Hadron Collider. Not again.
I am happy to report I am nearly finished with the latest Rex Havoc adventure, titled HORROR ISLAND. This story takes place exactly 1.5 seconds after the end of ASSKICKERS OF THE FANTASTIC, the first volume in what will be a series of Rex Havoc books.
This time around, Rex is shanghaied and taken to a remote island populated by the world’s greatest mad scientists, including Doctors Frankenstein, Moreau, Jekyll, Caligari, Rotwang and many others.
I think you’ll get a kick out of this adventure and consider buying many, many copies for all your friends and family, including that guy who stole your girlfriend back in high school. (C’mon, it’s been years. Time to move on.)
With luck, HORROR ISLAND will be out the end of June. Stay tuned.
