Itâs the night before the SAT test. The forces of darkness are stirring.
Twin brothers, Bing and Ron Slaughter, know theyâve got to cram like their lives depend on it because their college plans sure do. If they donât ace the test, theyâll be doomed to spend the rest of their days flipping burgers at the McDonaldâs their parents run. Thatâs why they hatch a plan to meet up with the members of their punk band, the Ephits, spend the night studying at a secluded cabin in the woods, and maybe squeeze in a little jamming. What could go wrong with a brilliant plan like that?
Ancient evil. Thatâs what.
As a cataclysmic lightning storm rolls in, Bing, Ron and the rest of the Ephits find themselves tangled in a sinister plot to summon a demon. Yes, demons are real. To survive the night, the band must find a malevolent artifact, battle bloodthirsty monsters and stand against the most dangerous and powerful foe humanity has ever facedâ¦the Golferâs Association.
âWait, wait, wait,â Ron interrupted. âThe Golfers Association? Donât you mean insane cultists or Satan worshipers or evil wizards or something?â
âInsane cultists, Satan worshipers and evil wizards are like elderly nuns compared to the Golfersâ Association,â their prisoner responded. âYouâd be much better off if it were something that simple. These guys are demon freaks.â
âDemon freaks,â Bing repeated in a whisper. âThat soundsâ¦bad.â
âOh, itâs bad alright,â the prisoner shuddered. âYou have no idea.â
About the Author:
Fish Wielder is J.R.R.R. (Jim) Hardison's first novel novel (He wrote a graphic novel, The Helm, for Dark Horse Comics). Jim has worked as a writer, screen writer, animator and film director. He started his professional career by producing a low-budget direct-to-video feature film, The Creature From Lake Michigan. Making a bad movie can be a crash course in the essential elements of good character and story, and The Creature From Lake Michigan was a tremendously bad movie. Shifting his focus entirely to animation, Jim joined Will Vinton Studios where he directed animated commercials for M&Mâs and on the stop-motion TV series Gary and Mike. While working at Vinton, he also co-wrote the television special Popeye's Voyage: The Quest for Pappy with actor Paul Reiser.
Jim has appeared on NBC's The Apprentice as an expert advisor on brand characters, developed characters and wrote the pilot episode for the PBS children's television series SeeMore's Playhouse and authored the previously mentioned graphic novel, The Helm, named one of 2010's top ten Great Graphic Novels for Teens by YALSA, a branch of the American Library Association. These days, Jim is the creative director and co-owner of Character LLC, a company that does story-analysis for brands and entertainment properties. He lives in Portland, Oregon with his lovely wife, two amazing kids, one smart dog and one stupid dog.
