The original title was THE ADVENTURES OF BILLY SPACE BOY AND HIS ASTRO DOG, ZAP. I thought it a little too lengthy and shortened it. The story began in the 80s while I was living in England. It got to be quite a running joke among myself and co-workers. We began to treat it like a Saturday Morning children’s television show which is hinted at by the Uncle Dave character in the story.

To the point, this is an irreverent fantasy satire novel. Long after my England days, I went back to the Billy Space Boy multiverse and wrote a number of short stories, all irreverent fantasy satire like this original novel. I hope to publish it soon, perhaps through Lulu. I’ve also begun a second collection set in the multiverse, but it’ll be a while before it’s completed. Too many other projects at the moment.

Lastly, I’m admittedly not too fond of the Billy Space Boy cover, but as for content, I’ll let the back cover blurb speak for itself…

It was a dastardly kidnap plot. The Dreaded Hooded Frog has kidnapped Princess Linda. We’re off on a wild raucous and riotous hilarious ride across the Multiverse with Billy Space Boy and the Astro Dog, Zap. From Dangerous Danny’s Spaceside Burger, Bar, and Disco to the Planet Slagheep, we follow the adventures of Billy and Zap in their attempt to rescue Princess Linda and bring peace and tranquility back to the Multiverse. And you thought this was just going to be your standard boring Dreaded Hood Frog and Princess formula story…!
