Finders Keepers Official Press Release




Tale of Cosmic Lunacy is Debut Novel

 from Author Russ Colchamiro


Captures Spirit of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett,

Eureka, Quantum Leap, The Big Bang Theory



SANTA CRUZ, C.A., October 11, 2010 – There’s a new tale of cosmic lunacy in town—and its name is Finders Keepers.


Available for purchase from publisher 3 Finger Prints, the debut novel from author Russ Colchamiro is a fast-paced, backpacking romp across Europe, New Zealand and the galactic realm of Eternity.


For fans of goofy science fiction and fantasy classics such as Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy and Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, plus TV shows and movies such as Time Bandits, Quantum Leap, Eureka and The Big Bang Theory, Finders Keepers is a buddy story that mixes comic-book style and chapter-to-chapter cliffhangers with humor, pathos, outrageous characters and time-bending, galaxy-twisting pratfalls.


Caught in that netherworld between college and a career, novice traveler Jason Medley and adventuresome Theo Barnes stumble through hash bars and hangovers; religious zealots and stalkers; food poisoning and thunderstorms; saucy girls; overnight trains—and the specter of adult responsibility!


But when a jar of the Universe’s DNA accidentally falls from Eternity, these new friends find their loyalties put to the test—unaware that a motley crew from another realm is chasing them across the globe, with the fate of the Milky Way hanging in the balance.


“Finders Keepers is goofy fun you just can’t put down,” says 3 Finger Prints president and Finders Keepers cover artist Rich Koslowski. “Russ has fashioned a wacky, character-driven novel that already ranks up with the best in the genre. Russ has a knack for dialogue and brings these two totally different guys, one from the New York suburbs, the other from Auckland, New Zealand—into a cosmic world that makes you care what happens to them both, and laugh out loud along the way.”


Finders Keepers is the first in a planned three-book series.
