About Summer Gothic: --

"Anytime is the right time for a good ghost story, or maybe 22 of them. This you will find in Summer Gothic . . ."

And "Earl and Bubba Save the King":

". . . two beer besotted good old boys, devoted sons of an Elvis fan still grieving the King's death, use the power of their minds (stop laughing) to travel back in time to 1972. It's a simple plan to prevent Elvis' death and 'make Mama happy again.'"
