The Good Humor Man now available as an eBook



The Good Humor Man by Andrew Fox is now out as an eBook! You can find it in all eBook formats (well, all of the ones we know about) at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, the iTunes store and other major online retailers. The novel, described by Kage Baker as "a Fahrenheit 451 for the post-millennium, told with Fox's magnificent evocation of place and twisted humor," goes a little something like this:

In 2041, a pound of real chocolate is worth more on the black market than a kilo of cocaine. The evil corporation MannaSantos controls the food supply with strange genetically-modified products. And a lone ex-plastic surgeon, whose father performed a secret liposuction surgery on Elvis Presley, holds the key to humanity's future.

In a mad dash to retrieve his family heirloom—the mortal remains of the King’s belly fat—Dr. Louis Shmalzberg becomes entangled with a civil servant of questionable motives, an acquisitive assassin from a wealthy Caliphate, a power-mad preacher evangelizing anorexia, a beautiful young woman addicted to liposuction, and a homicidal clone from a MannaSantos experiment gone terribly wrong.

Can Elvis save the world sixty-four years after his death?
