"A witty tale"
Billy and the rest of the band were within a mile of
Jerrysport, Mars when someone turned the town into ashes
with a nuclear strike. Billy was knocked unconscious, but
besides a headache was fortunate to be alive as he was just
beyond the ground zero meltdown range.
Galaxy society is in trouble as nuclear strikes like that
which recently shook Mars is becoming the norm even with
the Trekkies a thing of the past and the Enterprise a thing
of the future. Perhaps the last bastion of sanctuary (not
the butt of all those Venus to Jupiter jokes) remains
Cowboy Feng's establishment where someone can get a gourmet
meal consisting of matzoth ball soup and tamales and hear
Irish musicians play mostly not so Irish music. Can the
galaxy survive if Cowboy Feng's Space Bar and Grille is
destroyed? Probably not, but in the time-space continuum,
Feng's place seems to be one large step for mankind ahead
of those nuking this sector, but can the regulars take the
small steps to keep man safe?
COWBOY FENG'S SPACE BAR AND GRILLE is a wild satirical
futuristic space adventure that is for readers who
appreciate the zany wrapped inside a witty tale or perhaps
a witty tale wrapped outside the zany. Billy and the band
and the mysterious Cowboy Feng seem like the last choices
for the magnificent heroes trying to stop a murderous
conspiracy. This amusing story contains enough action to
keep the Trekkies contended, but mostly rips the skin off
those who use weapons of mass destruction to cleanse those
who possess weapons of mass destruction.
