Desperate for a headline Big City News night beat reporter, Rumplestiltskin gets excited about news of the murder of Old-Woman-Who-Lives-In-A-Shoe. Too bad he's accused. Too bad he must run. Too bad he can't find Shoeless Moe who might clear his name.

Win a copy of the POD version of Attack of the Lushites

Ok, folks, let's answer a question that puzzles me no end.  Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is a huge seller, movies such as Galaxy Quest won the Hugo. Fans love this stuff, yet when I mailed Lushites I was too often told they don't publish humour, or humour is a tough sell.  Why?

Why are science fiction and fantasy publishers reluctant to publish science fiction humour or satire?  Or are they? Have you read a funny science fiction or fantasy book you love?  Tell us about it.

Let's talk about the funny books of science fiction and fantasy, and enjoy a laugh together.

Make sure you show your e-mail address because the twentieth person who comments will receive a FREE  POD or e-book copy (winners choice) of Attack of the Lushites.

Attack of the Lushites now available on Smashwords!

Attack of the Lushites takes Russ’ readers into a gourmand’s delight of comic Sci Fi. We’re thrilled here at Lucky Bat Books to be publishing his book. Love the cover by artist Charles Nemitz (one of our own!). And, Russ, we’re still laughing. Chuckling. Pass the ketchup.

About Attack of the Lushites

SynopsisIn this thrilling, adventure-laden, grease-stained, booze-soaked comedy spanning the galaxy of tomorrow, two unlikely heroes find each other as they struggle to save addiction for all human and alien kind.
Join fast food junkie, Jalapeno Popover, and booze-hound Bud Wiser, as their two cultures clash in a titanic meeting of two inter-galactic species so different it’s just plain goofy.
Attack of the Lushites tells the harrowing story of mail clerk, Jal Popover who, at risk of losing his fat-and-sassy job forever, must deliver the first mail received in six hundred years. It must be bad news.
The Lushites are coming! The Lushites are coming! What should we do? Where should we hide? Aw, screw it. Let’s have lunch…
Russ Crossley’s novel, Bachelorette Zombie Edition, was published by Sapphire Blue Publishing in 2010. His second novel, Antique Virgin, as R.G. Hart, was published on March 27, 2011 by Sapphire Blue Publishing.
