Buddy Holly is Alive and Well on Ganymede

Posted by LiveFor on August 15, 2009

buddyhollyBoing Boing have the news that Bradley Denton‘s comic sf novel Buddy Holly is Alive and Well on Ganymede is being made into a movie directed and written by Robert Rugan.

Buddy Holly is the story of Oliver Vale, whose mother was obsessed with Buddy Holly, and who one day discovers that Buddy Holly is on the TV, on every TV, on every station, with a guitar around his neck, standing in a bubble on the surface of Ganymede, disoriented, musical, and periodically reading out a sign saying that further information is available from Oliver, and supplying his home address.

The entire world chases Oliver at this point: cops, radio cops, televangelists and their flocks, aliens — you name it. And Oliver begins a road-trip across America to Lubbock, Texas, there to exhume Buddy Holly’s corpse and verify for himself that the famous musician is not on a distant, airless moon.
