Legendary Blue Smoke

With a world-vibrating whoosh, a vast saucer-shaped spaceship dipped down through the atmosphere, blotting out the afternoon sun. Ian turned and there she was: Jane, his wife who had passed away 15 years ago…

Once upon a time people wore t-shirts that said “Ian is God.” In this century, though, Ian Better, 1970s guitar god, is old, alone, and about to lose everything he owns. In order to reclaim his life, Ian has to reunite Blue Smoke, his legendary band, and play a few concerts. But then there were flying saucers and dead wives and everything tilted into mythic confusion. On tour in a world where gods, aliens, imaginary friends, dead relatives, and cartoon coyotes are part of everyday life, the aging members of Blue Smoke discover the government's secret archive, history's greatest pot farms, the Land of the Dead, a town without rock'n'roll, and the secrets of time travel. Legendary Blue Smoke is a crazy psychedelic trip through worlds both perplexing and profound.

“Imagination, Insight and the Third I — Irreverence. Phil Farber serves as the hyphen between Science and Fantasy; the 'n' between Rock and Roll. Along with style and wit, the secret ingredient in his prose is magic galore.” — Paul Krassner, author of Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut: Misadventures in the Counterculture
