In near-future Charlottesville, Virginia, slacker extraordinaire Josef Meddleson lives happily with very little. Jif peanut butter and loose older women pretty much covers it. He's rather smug about not being a cog in the new kind of hyper-active, barbaric world of commercialism. But Josef is about to get sucked in to the madness in ways he couldn't dream of. And speaking of dreams, why is he suddenly experiencing lurid waking nightmares? This and other grisly events have spun his life out of control. The most startling of these has Founding Father and home town hero Thomas Jefferson trying to pummel him to death. Has TJ somehow reanimated back to life, or has Josef lost his mind? Or both?As life's grim absurdities pile up like a three-day old Las Vegas buffet, it becomes clear to Josef dreaming and reality are two sides of the same nickel. He understands escaping Jefferson's murderous advances will be the most heroic thing he will ever do... even if he's not certain it's really happening.'Souls for Sale' is a brash, satiric, and cryptic look at the insanity of global advertising, and the hilarity of trying to live a life of integrity in this world. If you've ever wondered, "Hey! You know what? I'd like to read a comical yet kind of creepy story about what the future of corporate advertising might look like," then this book is for you.

Mik and his wife Susan moved to the Shenandoah Valley in 2004. There he miraculously found his 'writers voice', his genre of choice (new absurdism), and a USC wine glass in an old box he thought he'd lost forever. 'Souls for Sale' is his first novel. He's also just completed a short story collection called 'Frying On This Rock', available on Amazon soon, and is working on a new novel. He writes and writes and rewrites amidst the beautiful surroundings of the valley in constant pursuit of 'The Dark Punchline.' He has no pets with cute, clever names.
