Curiosity Quills Press Prepares to Launch New “Kulture Vultures” Serialized Novella by NYC Journalist William Vitka and Radio Personality Bill Vitka
New York City, NY (PRWEB) January 30, 2012
Fans of Douglas Adams – and weekly serialized novellas – will be tuning in on February 21, 2012, as New York City-based author and journalist, William Vitka, and award-winning radio personality Bill Vitka, launch their “Kulture Vultures And The Plot To Steal The Universe”, a quirky science fiction adventure celebrating everything that is weird and wonderful about humanity.
In “Kulture Vultures”, an intergalactic cab driver named Zel must join some unlikely allies of questionable loyalties on a quest to resurrect Earths greatest pulp writers and scientists. It’s their one-in-a-million shot at stopping the Combine, a soulless media empire set on destroying everybody’s favorite source for pirated Earthling entertainment. After all, there’s simply no other culture like human monkey culture – the biggest threat to the Combine’s terrible sitcom lineup, defeating which will take the sort of creative craziness that hasn’t been seen in centuries.
The novella’s slogan tells it like it is: “Only five people can save the world. But theres a problem. Theyre dead.”
William Vitka had this to say about the launch:
“I’m grateful for the opportunity Curiosity Quills has given me. And I’m thrilled to be able to unleash something as ridiculous as Kulture Vultures. It’s going to be a blast. An over-the-top tribute to pulp and wonderful, filthy human monkeys.”
And he’s not the only one that’s excited:
“Kulture Vultures satisfies my love of adventure and tickles my funnybone, all while answering my frustrations with mass entertainment,” confesses Curiosity Quills Press Marketing Director, Lisa Gus. “It makes me appreciate my fellow human monkeys all the more. Not a lot of books can do that.”
“Kulture Vultures And The Plot To Steal The Universe” will begin serializing every Tuesday, starting from February 21, at the Curiosity Quills Press website. A stand-alone novella will be announced once serialization is complete.
