Chum Chum Chronicles: The Unnatural Materialization of Jane

Postby kingbtd » Wed Aug 10, 2016 4:43 am

Hello fellow science fiction fans. For those of you who are into Phillip K. Dick, Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett I have a book for you to read: "Chum Chum Chronicles: The Unnatural Materialization of Jane", and you can download it for free at

http://birddogbooks.com/bdb/content/chu ... ation-jane

I'm undecided if I will self-publish, which I've already done with "Mereology: The Origins of Garlic Cures and the Art of Telling a Telling a Tale of Ragout" or if I should try and find that big time publishing deal....ha! If you do take the time to read the book, it would be great to hear from you...good or bad.

Taglines: Speculative Fiction, Fantasy, Humor, Quantum Mechanics, Alternate History, Project MKUltra, Motörhead, Charles Mingus, Jazz, Telekinesis, Teleportation.

Mr. Lyons, formerly from the USA but now a longtime resident of Dresden, Germany.

Here's a short summary of the book or what might be considered a query; feel free to offer some suggestions or criticisms in regards to content, grammar, syntax, etc., etc..

Chum Chum Chronicles: The Unnatural Materialization of Jane is the first book in an eventual series of three, and is about Chum Chum the Squirrel, a chrononaut (time traveler) from an advanced Ancient Squirrel Society (ASS) that once dominated humans (chimps) and the globe some thirty-five thousand year ago until aliens came and hunted his as well as other species into, what we chimps have come to refer to as, the Pleistocene extinction. Having the ability to see things yet to come, the ASS knew that the chimps self-destructive habits would eventually cause the Earth to heat up; thus allowing the ASS the ability to know when the chrononuats buried deep within the permafrost of Siberia would thaw: Chum Chum was sent along with an army of chrononauts into the future to reclaim the planet.

The story is set in real time, and the chrononauts’ mission (after they all wake) is to release a deadly-to-chimps ancient virus cleverly hidden within their nuts (chrononauts’ First Strike Rations or FSRs and not their “scrotums”), with the intent of eradicating chimpkind and, consequently, stopping the chimpmade destruction of the environment. Squirrels would, once again, rule supreme over the world.
As fate would have it, Chum Chum was accidentally awoken from his cryogenic state four years too early by a geological research team in Siberia, and he became, while awaiting the arrival of his fellow chrononauts, a standup comedian, and, having indulged himself for three and a half years in chimp lifestyle, feelings of doubts developed in regards to the integrity of his mission.

The story begins in a comedy club in Denver, and after having finished his routine, Chum Chum’s best and only chimp friend is assassinated. Believing that the government has uncovered his and the other chrononauts’s mission to end chimpanity, Chum Chum is certain that the assassination of his friend was really a failed attempt on his own life and he goes on the lamb. While fleeing for his life, he, a Squirrel without any bonds to chimpanity, must decide whether or not he will help or hinder, after his fellow chrononauts arrive, the destruction of chimpkind.

The story unfolds in an array of machinations: Which chimps can Chum Chum trust and the fight between chimps and Squirrels for control over the new world, one in which quantum space travel and teleportation has been realized through the hybridization of chimp and squirrel technologies, becomes the stuff forcing readers’ eyes to burn through pages.

If you like Phillip K. Dick, Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, you will be entertained.

I currently have a book, Mereology: The Origins of Garlic Cures and the Art of Telling a Tale of Ragout, available on Bird Dog Books (birddogbooks.com) or any book retailer. The text is a theoretical work, in narrative memoir format, in the fields of Phenomenology and Mereology.

Thanks for letting me present my works here. I've been checking out some of the other posts, and it's a nice site. Lots of history here. I will try to be an active part of this ongoing story. Cheers.

ps I just changed the download for Chum Chum Chronicles. It's now only 270 pages and not 512, and it no longer has a fancy cover and such. I'm kind of a technology Neanderthal -- and Luddite.
