That's the word from best-selling author Tom Mcguane on the first novel of the Jack Mason Saga, The Rough English Equivalent... And Amazon reviewers say: "I bought it on the strength of Mcguane's endorsement... a HELL of a book!... an Altman movie, SCREAMING to be made!" The Saga's second novel, The Quintessence of Quick , continues to follow Jack's life and loves as he flies with the world-famous hurricane-hunting Storm Chasers. And coming up later this year, the Saga's third book, Time to Climb!
Leaving the Navy in 1964, Jack re-launches FlxAir, moribund after the supposed fatal crash* of the company's Grumman Albatross with a brand-new executive jet, The Lear Jet. The aircraft’s design emerged from the basic structure of a new Swiss fighter aircraft, the P-16. Bill Lear and his team saw it as a good starting point for the development of a business jet. The wing, with its distinctive tip fuel tanks and landing gear, was little changed from that of the fighter prototypes. On
As you can well imagine, Jack'll be flying high in Time to Climb. Join me in the Jack Mason Saga. You'll be in for the ride of your life... and of Jack's!
*The Albatross's "non-crash" was fatal to three of President Kennedy's assassins. Pilot Pete Weller shot them in retaliation for the apparent killing of his co-pilot, Linda Green. Jack, in fifth-millennium time-travel mode, resuscitated her and directed Pete to take up a heading for a third-millennium UFO awaiting them just off the South Carolina coast, where they'll await a safe time, after the orgy of assassination witness homicides is over, to return to Earth.
