Michael Lomax is the marketing director for a large entertainment corporation, Turner-Disney Productions. As the result of his advice, the corporation is losing money. He convinced the board of directors to diversify its entertainment portfolio and buy Graceland from the Presley family. Since the acquisition of the property, interest in Elvis Presley has waned. The number of tourists has dropped precipitously. To save his job, Lomax concocts a plan to heighten interest in Elvis and to increase the number of tourists. A bolt of lightning hits the mansion. Shortly thereafter, Elvis sightings are reported all over the country. Unfortunately for Lomax, the man he hired to impersonate the reincarnated King of Rock and Roll disappears. Also missing is the body of the late rock star. Either the impersonator or a psychiatrist, who planted the memories in some of the Elvis fans, can destroy the illusion of Presley's return from the dead and put Lomax in jail. Lomax wants both men eliminated.

About the Author

Bill Yancey had the privilege of being the son of an air force officer and the grandson of an army officer. As a result, he lived all over the world, but never really grew up. He attended four high schools, a prep school, and five colleges. After bouncing out of an engineering curriculum, and spending time in Vietnam as a result, he finally obtained an undergraduate degree in general science from Virginia Tech in 1971. The Medical College of Virginia (not the Va. Commonwealth University School of Medicine) still regrets giving him an M.D. degree in 1976. He writes for his own entertainment, and hopes you see the humor in it, too.

About the Author
Bill Yancey saw most of the world while growing up and in the Navy -- two thirds of the planet being covered by water. What he really wanted to do was fly jets like his father, but poor vision prevented him from passing the rigorous physical exam.

Unhappy with his lot in life, he moved from place to place, and job to job, never finding satisfaction. He eventually began to write, to construct a virtual world in which he had more control.

Elvis Saves had its beginning aboard the USS Darby, a troop ship which transported Bill and his family to Europe in August, 1958. Turning eleven years old during the voyage, Bill had never heard of Elvis Presley until the singer missed his ride on the Darby. Elvis's army unit, his comrades, and all his films to date made the trip, however. Bill always wondered if life would have been different had Elvis been onboard the ship, instead of being at home with his terminally ill mother.
