Overview

Daron's Guitar Chronicles: Omnibus Edition collects chapters 1-201 of the popular web serial (volumes 1-3 in ebook form), and includes some special bonus material. DGC tells the story of Daron Marks, a young guitarist trying to make it in the 1980s. It's a tale of "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" set at the height of AIDS hysteria, the era of "Just Say No (to drugs)", and when corporations kept a tight rein on musical genres and styles, before the "alternative rock" revolution. Daron is gay and is fighting internalized homophobia as well as resistance from the mainstream. After leaving home on a music scholarship, then leaving music school for the club stages of Boston, can Daron find the acceptance and love he needs, and the fame he wants?

The omnibus paperback is over 300 pages of rock and roll diary, covering Daron's adventures from 1986 through spring 1989. Also included are a "bonus" article from the website (a feature magazine interview with the band), and two "scrapbook" pages of clippings never before seen by web readers and available only in the paperback.
