View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Finders Keepers is a raunchy, sci-fi backpacking adventure -- in the spirit of  The Good Place, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy 

On a backpacking trip through Europe, Jason Medley and Theo Barnes stumble through hash bars and hangovers; religious zealots and stalkers; food poisoning and thunderstorms; cute girls; overnight trains; fever-pitch hallucinations--and the spectre of adult responsibility!

But when a jar containing the Universe's DNA falls from Eternity, these new friends find their loyalties put to the test . . . unaware that a motley crew from another realm is chasing them across the globe, with the fate of the Milky Way hanging in the balance.

Traversing Europe, New Zealand, and the backbone of Eternity, Finders Keepers is a raunchy, sci-fi backpacking comedy that not only tackles friendship, sex, commitment, and desire, but also God, reincarnation--and what really happened to the dinosaurs!

About the Author:

Russ Colchamiro is the author of the raunchy scifi backpacking comedy Finders Keepers, and the pulpy sci-fi adventure Crossline, both from Crazy 8 Press. He claims to be writing the first of two Finders Keepers sequels, but that could just be the galactic delusions talking, given that he was exposed to a jar of the Universe's liquid DNA.

To learn more about Russ and his ongoing tales of cosmic lunacy, you can visit his Web site at, and follow him on Twitter @authorduderuss, Facebook and Goodreads.

Russ is married with two children, and lives in West Orange, New Jersey. But if he suddenly vaporizes before your eyes and reconstitutes in another part of town, don't take it personally. It's just how he is.

From Publishers Weekly:

As the Milky Way Galaxy is being created in Eternity's laboratories, a jar of CBM (cosmic building material) goes missing on Earth (thanks to the on-the-clock "getting' it on" of two employees). Hapless New Zealander Theo Barnes discovers the jar but has no idea what it contains; when the sea creatures start talking, however, even he realizes that it holds great significance. Eager to learn more, he goes on a backpacking trip through Europe, where he meets Jason Medley, an aimless American on a quest of self-discovery. The two meander across the continent, while all around them people search desperately for the CBM, intent on salvaging the scheduled unveiling of the Milky Way. What Colchamiro's unique and funny novel lacks in coherence, it makes up for in style and panache. The author has created the quintessential bumbling duo in Barnes and Medley, two clueless dudes drifting through a rather dense narrative, and most of the large supporting cast from Eternity (from ex-lovers Emma and Lex to the husband-and-wife team of Donald and Danielle, who lost the jar in the first place) are funny and well-drawn. This is a strong debut from a very imaginative writer.
