About this title


It's the year 2520, a time of great importance, as the world's population anticipates the return of Halley's Comet. Beginning at the Park Avenue Amory Antiques show in New York City, and ending at the Hamptons Summer Classic on Long Island, Antique Showtime traces the antics and adventures of a group of antique dealers navigating their way through an increasingly uncertain world. John Meyer, a 25 year veteran of the antique business, offers an incredibly insightful, yet humorous, account of the trade. On top of that, he weaves in a murder mystery, a love story and philosophical Taoist musings. Despite the futuristic setting, Meyer shows that human nature remains the same throughout the ages. Anyone who has ever visited an antique show, or better yet worked at one, will revel in the novel's hilariously eccentric characters and situations, For those who haven't, let John Meyer be your insider guide to the weird and wild world of the antique-show business.

About the Author:

John Meyer was born in Queens, New York in 1954 and spent his early childhood in Indonesia before moving to Wilton, Connecticut. In 1976 he graduated from the University of Oregon with a BA in history. After working several years in historic preservation as a carpenter, he became a full time antique dealer in the 1980's. In the 1990’s he began writing and to date has completed three novels. John now lives with his family on a farm in Western Massachusetts where his interests include Taoism, homesteading, and collecting Balinese woodcarving and Chinese Furniture.
