Tales of a Metal Fisherman centers on the “Captain”, a hard-living repo man, stealing cars from those who have defaulted on their payments. Each chapter is a story in the Captain’s life, as he finds ingenious ways to catch his “metal fish”, while outwitting their furious drivers. The stories are fast-paced, irreverent, and bursting with originality, inspired by the classic adventures of pulp magazine scribes such as Robert Bloch.
Author Buffalo Beck is the owner of Buffalo’s Last Stand, a souvenir shop in Cope, and eastern Colorado’s premier book store. The stories in the book were inspired by the real-life adventures of a repo man he knew. He is also a contributor to Quarter Up, a popular online pinball and arcade newsletter that premiered last year.
The book launch will be held at Buffalo’s Last Stand, on Main Street in Cope, Saturday, March 18th, at 3 PM. The event will include a live reading from the book, with refreshments and Buffalo’s famous “buffins” being served.
We are selling a very limited run of twenty autographed copies for $19.99 apiece. Unsigned copies will be $14.99. The e-book is available for $4.99, and looks great on phones, tablets, laptops, and desktops.
The book features a cover by artist Chris Jacobs.
