Welcome to Los Alamos, where the big-brained boys and girls are at it again. But atoms have become passe: now its the Higgs boson, which they are using to develop a clean, efficient weapon of mini-destruction, mysteriously dropping bodies and groups of bodies into junior black holes within a fifty mile radius. Moreover, they are accomplishing this perfidy in comic rhyming quatrains. Can an intrepid group of six amateur do-gooders resolve the mystery and prevent the unleashing of this new WMD? With the help of several Doberman pinschers, a vasifactive Kentucky writer and his vivacious muse, Herr Morguemeister, and Verdis Otello, a resolution seems just possible.

Author Biography

Joe Taylor has had two previous novels, both with mouthfuls for titles: Oldcat & Ms. Puss: A Book of Days for You and Me, plus LET THERE BE LITE, OR, HOW I CAME TO KNOW AND LOVE GODEL'S INCOMPLETENESS PROOF (Livingston Press, 2014). So PINEAPPLE (Sagging Meniscus Press, 2017) presents vast streamlining. He's also published three story collections, edited several anthologies, and directed Livingston Press at the University of West Alabama for nearly 25 years. He walks the woods in lovely and rural Coatopa, Alabama, Native American for "wounded panther"--often enough apropos of his emotional state.
