MHS grad publishes second science fiction book
David Larson has been a big fan of the old science fiction movies from the 1950s and 60s.
His interest in these types of out-of-this-world experiences is furthered with his second book in that realm, “Ghost Saucers in the Sky. It is a follow up to his first book “Shake, Rattle & Rocket.”
It follows the lead character Captain Eddie Atomic and his shipmates, Spunky and Kioko.
“It’s just their adventures in outer space,” Larson said.
Larson, a 1977 Marshalltown High School graduate, moved to Waterloo from Marshalltown in 1992. His mother, current Marshalltown resident Jean Russell Larson, has published several books herself.
“I owe her a tremendous debt for inspiration and ability,” he said.
Through the years, Larson has been very active in writing CD reviews and band profiles in rock magazines and is also a political writer.
Larson is already working on the next book in the science fiction series.
“I just have fun with these characters and I don’t see an end in sight for their adventures,” Larson said.
The book is $10 and available through his blog at www.retroriffbooks.blogspot.com
