It was just a boring drive through the Nevada desert...until the Sonderberg family picked up a beautiful young hitchhiker named Mouse and found themselves on a wild, careening ride down the exit ramp to Hell. It seems the entire universe is doomed unless Mouse, a transdimensional alien, can find and heal the dying cosmic Spinner who controls the very fabric of reality. Suddenly attacked by a demonic gas station attendant, axe-wielding rats and fire-breathing cops, the Sondberg family must become warriors in a now-mystical motor home and battle pangalactic diners, weird worlds, impossible voids, and brain-bending realms of madness. They're driving into a fantastic nightmare to save all creation at the Vanishing Point on the Cosmic Road...which happens to be U.S. Interstate 40!

Joel Richards is a storyteller of both stage and page. He holds an MA in Storytelling, BFA in Acting and a BA English. He has acted OffBroadway as well as regionally around the US. Audiobooks are a natural combination of his skills and he has narrated dozens of audiobooks as well as hundreds of e-learning and shorter non-fiction works. So far his voice has helped plant trees, expand airports, teach yoga, and even prank call himself.
Picking up a hitchhiker changes the Las Vegas-bound vacation of sporting-goods executive Frank Sonderberg and family into yet another of Foster's ( Into the Out Of ) quests to save the world. Their guest is a slight, lavender-eyed woman called "Mouse" who claims to be 4000 years old and is on her way to the Vanishing Point, where she must regulate the spinner that weaves the fabric of existence. If she fails, evil and chaos will reign supreme. The Sonderbergs get a glimpse of the possible result when their mobile home wanders into such alternate worlds as a postholocaust Utah, a fire-and-brimstone burg called "Hades Junction" and alien Pass Regulusa glitzy but incomprehensible version of Las Vegas. The noble Sonderbergs are a dull bunch, but Foster keeps this jaunt entertaining with his fantasy exaggerations of road stops at unknown towns, intriguing turnoffs and dubious diners.
