2012 Montezuma's Revenge

 Yes, the world as we know it  ended on December 21st, 2012, just like the Mayan calendar predicted, we just didn't know ti.  No, it wasn't  a result of nuclear war or a pandemic of some strange avian flu. The end of the planet won’t be caused by SUVs pouring exhaust into the air, aerosol cans or non-recyclable grocery bags. No space aliens are coming to eat us and the planet isn’t going to reverse its magnetic fields and flip over in space like a big, blue flapjack. We just farted it away.

Church of the Path of Least Resistance

When John Wye receives a cryptic phone call for help from Mike Compari, neither suspects they will encounter bumbling hitmen, a communist-hating old lady who looks like Yoda, or rescue a refugee – and a rare book – from a book burning let alone enlist a group of Civil War reenactors to bring down a cult with nefarious ties to the Federal Government. The truth about John’s ancestor, a Civil War captain, comes to light along with the lost Confederate gold, a lusty piratess, the invention of margaritas, hush puppies, mud wrestling, a treasure hunt and an amorous dolphin.
