The amazing, perilous, sometimes hilarious adventures of Samuel Clemens on the Moon continue in The Deirdre, book two of the Mark Twain on the Moon saga.
At the end of book one, Prospectors!, Sam and his partner Calvin found themselves stranded in a remote crater, down to their last cylinder of air.
In book two, they are dramatically rescued by the men of The Deirdre, an ice mine on the crater’s rim, and forced into indentured servitude, digging for ice deep under the surface of the Moon. But when the Deirdres jump a neighboring claim, and no-nonsense Calvin hears the cries of a long-dead miner on his radio, life inside the Moon turns deadly, and soon Sam needs all of his wits, and a six-gun, to keep himself and the Deirdres alive.
Michael Schulkins writes humor and sci-fi novels of phantasmagorical fun! His most recent series, Mark Twain on the Moon, explores the inimitable style of Samuel Clemens in a steampunk alternate history. Other novels include the out-of-this-world political satires Up A Tree: A Jobs and Plunkitt Galactic Adventure, Beltway, and the comic crime capers Mother Lode and Sting Suite.
Michael spent most of his life in California, but has recently escaped with his wonderful wife Helen to the wilds of Arizona. He attended several universities and eventually emerged with two degrees in physics, one in music composition, and minors in math, political science, philosophy, and poker. He subsequently spent twenty years teaching physics, and now writes fiction full time.
His work can be found at michaelschulkins.com, marktwainonthemoon.com, and at Amazon, Audible, and other book retailers. All of Michael's books should give you a good laugh, but they may also make you stop and think.
