Record store owner Chris leaves his shop in the hands of a good friend while he heads to Elaine, a small town in upper Michigan, to meet his girlfriend, Agnes, for her recently deceased mother’s funeral.

Strangely, a single train is the only way into town. Even stranger, Agnes is nowhere to be found there. As Chris searches for her, more and more questions come up. Why is he suddenly having recurring nightmares? What’s the deal with the fire-and-brimstone preacher on the local TV station? Why is almost every woman in town named Elaine?

And why can’t he leave?

There is a non-corporeal parasite in your brain. It latches onto your thoughts, wriggles into the ears of passersby, and gestates in their minds. Any coherent idea is a new disease, so you weave small bytes of information together in non-sequitur patterns, creating data strain vaccines. You splice the data strains into VHS tapes from the local rental store. But the entire world is already infected, and the only antibody with any hope of destroying the disease is your misery. You know what you must do:

Befriend the Robitussin vulture. Join its cult.

Fall in love with a pock-faced Toyota Prius.

Shit your pants in front of your neighbor Mrs. Hendrick.

Give birth to a daycare facility.

Exude Schauss pink purity foam from every pore in your body.

Save the world, one puddle of purity foam at a time.

Every day, it’s another rotting giraffe.The police and neighbors all think the father, Richard, is to blame. He is, after all, walking around with his dead wife’s urn, talking to it like she can hear him. Lacey isn’t so sure. She knows her dad might be losing it, but thinks the weird, old lady who’s always warning about the zombie apocalypse could be involved. Together, Lacey and Richard need to figure out how to make this rain of giraffe carcasses stop before the strain of this surreal nightmare shatters whatever hope they have left.

There is a light and there is a darkness. There is, also, a space in between. Homer Antumbra inhabited this no-man’s-land. In his flickering flame of a life, he shined the light and lived with the darkness. His life and work changed the craft of songwriting, both showing what a song could be and hinting at where it could go. His work redefined a genre before shattering any attempts at categorization. Shining the Light is the first in-depth look into the man, the myth, the music of Homer Antumbra, ensuring the light still shines.
