About the Author
Author S.S. Wilson is veteran of 25 years as a screenwriter and film director with a talent for turning the familiar into the unexpected. Short Circuit side-stepped movie robot clichés to give us the unforgettable Johnny Five. Tremors was both an action film and a send-up of 1950s monster movies. In his first novel, Wilson takes us on a whirlwind adventure that, along the way, pokes fun at classic Hollywood horror films.
