Today I’m very happy to introduce our latest author at Venture Press, A C Weisbecker.
Venture Press are republishing Allan’s book Cosmic Banditos in ebook format. It’s a rip-roaring tale, filled with frolics, fun, and physics!
“Outrageous … an absurd and highly entertaining comic romp.” — Booklist
Allan C. Weisbecker has three books in print: A cult-hit autobiographical novel, Cosmic Banditos, and two memoirs, In Search of Captain Zero; A Surfer’s Road Trip Beyond the End of the Road, and Can’t You Get Along With Anyone? A Writer’s Memoir and a Tale of a Lost Surfer’s Paradise. The first two have been bought for the movies, by John Cusack (with New Crime Productions) and Sean Penn (with Radar Pictures) respectively. In both deals Allan was hired on as screenwriter.
Allan was a ‘Hollywood writer’ for over twenty years. He was one of the initial staff writers on Miami Vice; he was also on staff for Crime Story, Michael Mann’s follow up TV series. He went on to write the screenplay for Beer, a Robert Chartoff (Rocky, The Right Stuff, Raging Bull, etc, etc) production, from his original idea, a comedy about a beer advertising campaign that gets out of hand.
Allan made a good living in Hollywood right into the mid 1990s, then, for personal, aesthetic reasons, he decided to get back to living life, and to make a film completely on his own. Water Time; Surf Travel Diary of a MadMan can be viewed via his website, Banditobooks.com.
Allan lives on the road with his dog Gus and is making Part Two of Water Time.
