About this ebook

 This alternative history novel begins with a mouse trying desperately to follow an ambulance occupied by a VIP being transported into a laboratory/clinic. It's Dec. 16, 1966… the day WALT DISNEY’s body supposedly was placed into cryonic suspension. He faces a momentous decision: a contractual provision requires a review, every five years, to assess whether enough medical advances would be feasible for reanimation. Although absent for 50 years, he has not been forgotten, figuratively or literally. This poses questions that each of us may have to answer in our own lives as we measure ourselves against the changes wrought by medical and scientific progress. Moreover, who might enjoy being the first person to be revived to a functioning life more than Walter Elias Disney? This new science fiction and fantasy novel exposes both Disney and curmudgeon mentor, celebrated icon Samuel Clemens, AKA Mark Twain (notorious for his way of yarn spinning) to numerous time travel and enlightening experiences – some predetermined, others not so much - all to ensure a heightened awareness of the possible pitfalls or foibles experienced herein:

• Disney and Clemens experience San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury twice, 20 years apart.

• They are seen by dismayed Mission Control at NASA, while on the moon.

• They listen to famed singer Joan Baez at Woodstock.

• They meet Steve Jobs at a garage sale.

• Twain realizes there is more than one Mark Twain on the Bonanza television set.

• There is a run-in with an Olympic runner and encounter an obnoxious biker with his unruly chick.

• They have a run-in with a bank robber; visit a  nightclub, and an important tool is stolen.

• And of course, they visit both Disneyland and Disneyworld with hilarious and heartwarming outcomes.

• When they interact with modern audiovisual technology and kitchen appliances, anything can and does happen.

• They also experience the dismay of traumatic world-changing events and the pitfalls of not following the dictate.

Very interesting, but strange. Very strange. The story takes the reader along on an expedition crafted for Walt Disney who was cryogenically preserved at death and must make a decision to return to earth or not. What follows from that is a tour of history from his death to the present as Disney is accompanied by a Mark Twain who behaves more like Loki and gets into trouble at every opportunity. Jim Seybert is the very capable narrator. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
