Road returns home…

“It’s best about now to get back home,” says Road…

Having toured London & the British Isles for several months, Road of Road’s Cannon, the first of two short novels by Rawclyde, is returning home to the United States.

“I squeezed that rock as dry as its going to get and its time to return for the presidential campaign,” says young American Road.  And that campaign will be going full throttle soon.

Road considers visiting London to have been an outstanding adventure, especially when he met the ghosts of Winston Churchill and Mahatma Gandhi at Trafalgar Square.  “At the time it was hard to believe it was really happening,” says Road, whose garb has changed a bit since his visit to the British Isles.

Being as he’s a fictional character and such characters tend to get lost in time, Road doesn’t mind now as much as he once did if people don’t take him too seriously.  The antihero of the short-novel spoof that backed American prison reform in the early ’70s, with a wink reminds us, though, that “there is always the possibilty that fiction will turn into fact any split second.”

Road and I, his creator, decided the model-actor for Road in this update’s photos had to be Steve Reeves of old Italian movie fame, because, well, just because.   “I loved his movies when I was a kid,” says my young dashing altar-ego.  And so did I ~ I, Rawclyde, not Road, well, both of us actually…

Hit the road in a '56 Chevy milk-truck, a "studymobile," filling up notebooks & working as a laborer in the southwest... Practiced the genteel art of fiction for several years in my hometown... Enlisted in the U.S. Army ~ they made me a newsman in Hawaii ~ wrote another column for a while... Attended more courses at SDSU ~ studied novel writing with Professor Charlie Brashers... Sold books out of an '85 Ford one-ton van, a "book mule," in the desert... Did some writing in an old hotel in Prescott AZ... Have written & self-published 9 or so books ~ many of which are hiding out on the cyber highway...

    Thank you for the “like”, Wendy. When Road dropped by to see you in London, I hope it wasn’t unpleasant…
