Metropolisville is more than just a wheelbarrow full of consonants and vowels rubbing up against each other in ways that are dark and dangerous, and hard to pronounce. There are a million stories in this naked city, and at the heart of most of the stranger ones lies Slick Bracer, P.I.! Decoder Ring Theatre is now proud to present Eric Deckers' hard-hitting hero in Slick Bracer and the Giant Nap!
"I don't know how long I sat there... reading the name on the door over and over until my scrambled brain could make sense of it... Drake Finn Investigations..."
Detective Drake Finn is like a lot of hard-boiled, down at the mouth kind of private eyes. Except he lives in a dark and dangerous future where who the Ominframe says you are is exactly who you are and always will be. Until an access protocol that can change all of that is put on the table. Then all bets are off... and a tough guy who's just been poured a sparkling glass of brain damage doesn't have half a chance... does he?
And now, our Showcase presents another adventure with Matt Wallace's Deck Gibson: Far Reach Commander! Years ago Deck left Earth's isolationist Quasar Corps behind him. He traded in his old life, keeping Earth "safe" from a Galaxy of wonder, for the command chair of the Far Reach One. It was not a decision he ever paused to regret. He assumed the Quasar Corps had long forgotten him. He was wrong.
When Far Reach Control intercepts a distress call from members of a mysterious race, there is little time to spare. Only the pilot of the Far Reach 1, the only member of Earth's feared Quasar Corps ever to fly under an alien flag, is close enough to assist. Can Commander Deck Gibson leave the past behind and protect the galaxy of wonder into which he has been thrust?
And now, our Showcase presents The Crasher another chilling tale of suspense from a world just beyond the borders of our own. A young writer looking for a fresh start and a clean slate finds himself in the quiet town of Halfway. The perfect place to finish his novel and get his career back on track. But sometimes life has other plans for us. Another masterful script by Magic of the Movies author Tim Prasil
