New short story by S.S. Wlson
"Gerro's Giant Grongeduke."
READ S.S. WILSON'S NEW SHORT STORY!
I've always been fascinated by things-that-swarm (like killer bees, army ants or the shriekers in Tremors 2) and I've been avidly following news of the current hatch of millions of 17 year cicadas.So it seems the perfect time to publish a story I've written that is (sort of) a tribute to such creatures -- taken to an extreme sci-fi level.
It's called "Gerro's Giant Grongeduke."I'm putting it up on Amazon and If you like it, don't hesitate to check out my novels: Tucker's Monster and Fraidy Cats.

Tucker’s Monster by S. S. Wilson
Entertaining for ages 12 and up.
In his first novel, veteran screenwriter S. S. Wilson (Tremors, Short Circuit, The Wild Wild West) offers up a rollicking adventure in which wide-eyed Whitney learns about werewolves, mummies, ghosts, and even meets a mad scientist. On a more subtle level, Wilson also pokes ample fun at classic horror movie clichés as he careens toward an unexpected (and Hollywood sized) climax.

Publishers Weekly Review
In this rip-roaring portrait of a man with the money, recklessness, and the tenacity to pursue his single-minded goal of discovering a live dinosaur in the year 1903, mild-mannered scientist Gerard Whitney answers a job ad only to find himself working for wealthy eccentric Harold B. Tucker on his Oklahoma ranch. Most days, Whitney is free to work on his scientific classifications, but when Tucker receives reports of hauntings, monster sightings, or other unexplained activity, Whitney must accompany him on his investigations. Sparing no expense, Tucker, his helpers, and his vast collection of firearms travel to Louisiana, Vermont, and ultimately to Venezuela, and neither Whitney nor Jenny, the Cherokee woman who is Tucker's wife and dinosaur-hunting partner, can persuade him out of threatening and bullying locals and even devastating ecosystems in pursuit of his impossible quarry. That both Tucker's companions and the novel's readers are inclined to forgive the manipulative, volatile dinosaur hunter is a testament to the author's character building. For all his gruffness and his power, Tucker is a man compelled by a tragically unrealizeable dream, and the pathos of his situation is clear. Tense action scenes, including a particularly memorable haunted house, keep the pace moving at a brisk clip. A heartfelt and well-realized tall tale.
S.S. Wilson is busily working on finishing his second novel. Hope he does not get too distracted by all the fun stuff in his office.
