That’s Another Story
by Christopher Allen Waldrop

Summary (dustjacket, inside front flap)

After a series of strange events brings Edward back to the old Forrest estate he finds there’s so much more than he ever expected to be uncovered. There is the family fortune to be settled, and, more frightening still, the ghost of Great Uncle (once removed) Felix, who shot forty-four men, one of them just for snoring too loud. Will he finally be put to rest, and will his beloved ferret ever be found? And just what is that pachinko machine doing in the attic? As the first comprehensive biography of comedian Joey Toledo this elegant, easy-to-read guide to quantum physics will leave you breathless and able to replace load-bearing walls in your friends’ houses. And in the end they’ll all discover the true meaning of Arbor Day.

Author Bio (Dustjacket, back flap)
Christopher Allen Waldrop has written two thirty-second horror films and is terrified he’ll write a third. He speaks just enough of half a dozen languages to be unable to communicate with anyone. He picks up spiders with his bare hands but is terrified of ferrets. He really hopes the book tour will take him to Toledo, Ohio, because it’s one of those places no one ever thinks about going but is probably a great town. Also he’s been to Toledo, Spain, and it would be nice to have the set. When the mood strikes him he files assault charges. He doesn’t know what the deal is with pudding and wishes you would quit asking. He really loves his wife and is happy to be owned by multiple Dalmatians. When he has nothing better to do he breeds urinals.

"It’s the satiric equivalent of Toni Basil’s ‘Hey Mickey’."
