The Headless Dog
and Other Far-Fetched Extraordinary True Tales
of
Central Pennsylvania
Willis
Crackpot, inventor, curbside philosopher, wheeler, dealer,
a man with a plan, a dreamer.
 This is the story of Albert Willis, an
old man posed at the edge of a hole six feet deep, with a message and an
invention he believes will benefit all mankind.  His invention is a group of
turning wheels, flashing lights and fancy decals.  He calls it a computer.  It’
s not.  The message that he has to deliver is a mixed up jumble of thoughts
hidden in lines of poetry painstakingly penned, and put into a manual that
repeats, repeats, repeats the same warning over and over again.
Following a chance meeting, Betty, a young woman, fresh out of art school
with dreams of her own, becomes his reluctant disciple.  She chooses to
help Willis fulfill his dream of getting his message to the world.  She keeps
any skepticism to herself because after all, it’s his dream, not hers, so
what does it matter what he thinks?  Until the end.  Sometimes those
dreams that seem the craziest make the most sense, when we come to
understand the source.

A futuristic historical existential pastoral road poem thriller mystery.


In the year 1997, junk cites are ruled by behemoth corporations and an elite of
governmental, professional, and similar special interest organizations,
socioeconomic inequality, social strife, and overconsumption (to name just a few ills)
run rampant, and the bulk of people, if they can afford it, scurry about on crowded
highways in high-powered vehicles, for which the state readily grants licenses for
their legal operation.
But two renegade women, known collectively as TZB-1003, Tizsa and Brocolee
respectively, depart from the city late one October night and travel in their car up the
central Susquehanna River valley, through the Appalachian Mountains, and into the
Genesee River valley, areas of the country only sporadically touched by civilization.  
Their erratic movements arouse the attention of several ghosts from the region’s
past, including John Harris, father of the founder of Harrisburg, and his former slave,
Hercules; John Mason, the Hermit of Blue Hill; Indian chiefs Shikellamy and
Sasoonan; and lumber baron Peter Herdic and his community of admirers.   Along
the way the women pick up several hitchhikers, one of whom in a former life was
Regina Shultz, friend of fellow “Native abductee” Mary Jemison, the White Woman of
the Genesee.
Also, from the outset of their trip, Tizsa and Brocolee are followed by another car –
and it is not at all clear why.
No one knows exactly where Tizsa and Brocolee are going, and from what anybody
can tell, they probably don’t know exactly where they’re going either.
