—————- Now playing: Manic Street Preachers – So Why So Sad via FoxyTunesPosted March 20th, 2008 by DennisIn emailing back and forth with Chuck earlier this week, I asked him what he’s been up to. I might have been feeling him out for what he’s been working on a little. But it wasn’t my primary intention. Still, little did I know he’d be willing to reveal this much, about his follow-up book to ‘Snuff’. The book is called ‘Pygmy‘, and it’s already written! Read on below for the plot:I’ve just finished the first draft of a novel called “Pygmy,” a dark comedy about terrorism and racism. The lead character is a 13-year-old foreign exchange student sent to live with a suburban, white, middle-class family. Oh, and they’re Christians. The visit is for six months, and he’s one of a dozen similar kids, all shipped to America to live with typical families. The secret truth is that Pygmy is a terrorist, trained since infancy in martial arts, chemistry and radical hatred of the United States. He has six months to build a prize-winning project for the National Science Fair. If he succeeds, he and his project will go to Washington, D.C. for the finals competition — where the project will explode, killing millions.So far, Gerry Howard says it’s the best book I’ve done. Fingers crossed for luck.
