9781492121800: Walter Stickle and the Galactic Rangers (The Adventures of Walter Stickle) (Volume 1)

Walter Stickle is a creature of consistency: from the time he gets up, to the clothes he wears, the food he eats, the way he works, how he spends his free time . . . He does everything the same way. Every day. Boring? Maybe, but he likes his routine. It's normal. But Walter also likes the Galactic Rangers. He reads the comic strip. He collects the action figures. He goes to the ComicCons. He is obsessed with them. Why? Because despite the sense of security he finds in being normal, Walter has always dreamed of going to the stars. Just once, he would like an adventure. Just once, he would like to be the hero. If only he had the chance . . .Our story begins with an ordinary man, an anomalous pair of mismatched socks, and a comic strip. It ends with the adventure of a lifetime.

About the Author:

Larry Enright is the son of Irish immigrants, born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He attended Kenyon College and graduated Magna Cum Laude with an A.B. in Philosophy and minors in Art and English Literature.

After college, he moved to the East Coast where he filled his life with many careers including teacher, professional musician, computer programmer, and researcher. He wrote his first novel in 1980, and penned two more "bookend efforts" before "Four Years from Home," was published in 2010. That book went on to be a top 100 U.S. Kindle best seller for three consecutive weeks and a category best seller for nine months. He has since written "A King in a Court of Fools," a serial novel read by thousands online weekly for over a year until published in book form, "Buffalo Nickel Christmas," a Christmas fantasy set in the 1950s, "12|21|12," a short piece of alternative science fiction, "A Cape May Diamond," a story of mystery and redemption, "The Adventures of Walter Stickle," a 3-book series of science fiction about an ordinary man with extraordinary adventures, "The Blacker Death," a thriller that pits one man against the mob and a deadly disease, and "Transcriber," a story of timeless love and unnatural hate. 

Larry lives on a small farm with his wife and two sons where he writes full time and supports other authors in their efforts to fulfill their dreams.

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 203 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. One ordinary man, one extraordinary adventure. Universal Encyclopedia (713th edition, page 32,603, heading - Galactic History) On Sidereal 1031.42, as time came to be measured, our galaxy s five central worlds formed the first Congress of Planets. Headquartered in the city of Jandu on the planet Argon, they were tasked with governing relations between the known worlds. Walter Stickle knows all about this because it happens to be the backstory of his favorite comic strip, The Galactic Rangers. (entry continued.) On that date, Congress enacted the Articles, a comprehensive system of laws regulating trade, civil, and interplanetary matters. These Articles have existed for over a thousand sidereals. And though Walter could recite many of these Articles from memory, he feels no particular compunction to obey any of them because they only exist in the world of his favorite comic. (entry continued.) To uphold these laws, the First Congress of Planets formed the Galactic Rangers, guardians of peace in the galaxy. (See related entry, page 45,984, subheading - Galactic Rangers) Walter could also tell you that, for over a thousand sidereals, the Galactic Rangers have faithfully carried out their mission to maintain order throughout the known systems. Their deeds are legendary and their devotion to duty and the law unshakable, but he only knows this because it s all good sci-fi fun. Universal Encyclopedia (713th edition, page 158,129, heading - Unresolved Mission Logs, subheading - Beta Sector, Sol System, Third Planet) Entry date - Sidereal 2153.65. Scout Ship Iota: Mission - Survey. Status - Classified. Entry - Redacted. Or is it all just good sci-fi fun? Walter Stickle s story begins with an ordinary man, a pair of mismatched socks, a woman with the ugliest glasses on Earth, and a comic strip. When a series of unusual events blurs the line between the normal and the extraordinary, between the real and the unreal, and between science fiction and science fact, it ends with the adventure of a lifetime.
