Publishers Weekly Hails ‘Finders Keepers’

Calls Sci-Fi Backpacking Romp ‘Unique and Funny … with ‘Style and Panache’

        –Adventurous Buddy Story from Author Russ Colchamiro   
                  Captures Spirit of Vonnegut, Adams, Pratchett–
SANTA CRUZ, C.A., January 12, 2011 – There’s a new galactic buddy story in town—and its name is Finders Keepers.
Available to booksellers through publisher 3 Finger Prints, the hilarious debut novel from author Russ Colchamiro is getting rave reviews:
“Unique and funny [with] … style and panache. … [Finders Keepers is] a strong debut from a very imaginative writer.” — Publishers Weekly

“A rollicking novel.” — Science Fiction & Fantasy Association of New Zealand

“Funny and adventurous … A great reminder to live life to the fullest!” — Rob Magnotti, Comedian, Late Show with David Letterman

“Fantasia in print!” — Thomas O’Callaghan, international best-selling author of Bone Thief and The Screaming Room
For fans of hilarious 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, The Big Bang Theory and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Finders Keepers is a character-driven adventure that mixes chapter-to-chapter cliffhangers with humor, pathos 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.
