|Plot Summary of Milky Way Marmalade|
Caffrey Quark is tired of killing exotic alien creatures for the fickle taste buds of his rich, powerful and obnoxious clientele. So he takes a jaunt through space-time and retires to 1960s East Village, NYC to live out his life as a struggling rock star.
But some weird stuff is going on around the Milky Way. Planets are selectively vanishing and the enigmatic and rather narcissistic (and bit of a pervert) android, Poe 33, has become separated from his charge- the Great L'Orange- a wise lump of orange, gelatinous star stuff. As his programming dictates, Poe 33 must track down the blood-line of his maker- Caffrey Quark!
Will Caffrey bow to synchronicity and realize that his new found rock & roll bliss will be short-lived? Will he become the reluctant hero? Can Poe 33, Yin- his beloved West Highland Terrier and his jealous but soft-hearted computer, Angie aid in his adventure to some of the Milky Ways more bizarre ports-of-call? Will Caffrey be able to save his band mates, the galaxy and music itself, from an insane megalomaniac and his Order Determined to Overthrow Reality (O.D.O.R.)?
