Overview

An insane, satiric, humorous, romantic romp through a galaxy full of sexually hyped aliens, bar and grill spaceships, great white horned beasts drinking gold mist, fish transmogrified to match the lust of lost space explorers, and more!

Pioneers from a dying Earth are perpetually hurling into the future, away from home, searching for enough “Roobalas” – the red galactic currency – to go backwards, to go home.

Space explorers for the WACOFF Corporation careen through the galaxy on a comic odyssey of self-discovery, disillusionment and survival. Come along and explore ROOBALA TAKE ME HOME and its surprising pathways into inner and outer space.
Initially written before “Star Wars,” ROOBALA clearly embraces the era’s zeitgeist; however, ROOBALA shreds through the good versus evil underpinning of “Star Wars” and romps through space confronting complex conundrums of human existence. ROOBALA TAKE ME HOME is a grand comedic novel applying western themes to a futuristic Earth and space frontier, full of romance, sex, adventure, mystery, literary and cultural allusions, and financial crisis. ROOBALA vaults readers caroming through space and plot using its own curiously warped narrative drive.

“Perhaps I should warn you, my reporting of these events, this report you are choosing to consume bit by bit, includes my attempts to describe sex… sex between lovers, sex between those who are not lovers, and sex between humans and aliens. I tell you now, so you can, with luck, control your urges, your destiny. Some cringe at the potential for pornography, while others scroll right to it, and there are plenty of good theories that can explain why you cringe or lust.”

Publishers and agents have said that “Roobala” is “beautiful, witty, and surprising” full of “vivid imagination and beguiling moments” and with the deepest sincerity, “You’re crazy.”
