The Tiki King from the Author: Stacy Tintocalis. A Lebanese housewife, a former horror-film maker, and a cantankerous Russian librarian are among the inhabitants of the offbeat world found in this impressive debut collection. Stacy Tintocalis’s stories take us from a defunct women’s shelter off a Missouri country road to the streets of low-income Hollywood, where her characters yearn for the love that is always just out of reach. The title story explores the conflicted emotions an adolescent boy feels toward a father who obsessively returns to his childhood home. In “Too Bad about Howie,” a divorced poet finds comfort in stolen moments with his ex-wife’s dog. Despite their longing for connection, these characters are victims of their own foibles, trapped in terrifying moments of psychic violence that risk driving away the very people they love.

Sam Slick Lizard Detective from the Author: Tiki King. One fine morning in 1986, Sam Slick slithered out from the imagination of Tiki King. (He wasn't called Tiki King back then, but that is a different story) He lit a smoke, poured a drink, and then set out on the adventures you will find in this book.(after finishing his drink, of course) Sam was created as an insert to some letters to a friend, was supposed to run four or five strips, and then depart as mysteriously as he appeared. Sam however, had other ideas. He just kept going, and even came out with his own line of Tee-shirts, stickers and buttons. Among those who knew him, Sam was a hit. Then with out a word, Sam disappeared. He surfaced briefly in 1989, but then dropped from sight, possibly never to return. Calls went unanswered, mail came back marked return to sender but now, almost 20 years after it all began, there is a light on in the office. Sam is back, alive and well, having new adventures, and probably watching you right now...In this first edition is the story that started it all "Bunny business" and the second story "Chicken Town" Available for the first time complete and in book form, beautifully type-set in comic sans! Sure to be a collectors item! (Provided you collect lizard detective comic novels)In a recent interview, author Tiki King said: "Can you really put a price on genius? I don't know, but the book is ten bucks. A bargain for people who usually spend twice as much..." Oh, yeah, and even though it is a comic book, it ain't for the kids! It's got violence, cigarettes, excessive drinking, innuendo, ukuleles, angry flies with machine guns...
