Illustrated by Brad ‘Tiki Shark’ Parker
The modern Battle of the Gods with epic fights against mutated demons starts when this pig wanders into a bar; well, not quite, but…
Hawai’i, 1946. The goddess Pele need a hero. But why did she choose an alcoholic, war-wounded ex-U.S. naval commander, Hunter Hopewell, to battle fire-breathing dragons and evil gods and save the world? Maybe, because he’s changing… but changing into what? Meanwhile, attractive, young Tommi Chen, once a Japanese student and spy, now successful in the black market, but not what she seems, is seeking revenge and has decided to steal an atomic bomb… before it explodes.
Atomic Dreams at the Red Tiki Lounge is a fast-paced historical fantasy, featuring a transoceanic chase, a race against the countdown, battles against war gods, and Godzilla-like sea creatures for control over earth and the heavens.
Award-winning author S.P. Grogan introduces the reader to a post-World War II watering hole, the Red Tiki Lounge and Bar, a Pacific oasis of dreams and visions, located in Honolulu, Hawai’I, American territory. Famed island pop surrealist artist Brad ‘Tiki Shark’ Parker offers up a colorful collection of his best-known works that captures the exotic world of tiki culture and helps to bridge within Atomic Dreams a truly believable alternate reality.
