Stories And Music, Baby. That's What It's All About

Posted 28 Mar 2019

If you haven't heard the exciting conclusion of the special two-parter episode of Ace Tucker Space Trucker, what the hell are you waiting for? Take a listen, yo!

It's really good. I swear. But it might make more sense to listen to the first part first. I dunno. I'm not gonna tell you what to do. You do you.

The next new episode is in the works!

I can't nail down an exact date yet but it's in the works and will drop in March. And it's gonna be awesome.

Shiny Objects!

If you've been following this little newsletter for any amount of time you know that I jump around from project to project.

A lot.

A lot, a lot.

So, I think I'm going to start having a little section at the end of each email that lists out what projects are active, what's stalled, what I'm pondering, where I'm going to be, etc. Kind of a TL;DR to keep you up to date (and ME on task!).

So, here goes:

Active Projects *

On Hold Projects

  • Red Hot Rebellion album #3
  • Creativity podcast (replacement for Idiots With Instruments)
  • Y/A "superhero" novel
  • Vikings vs. Unicorns comic book
  • Vikings vs. Unicorns card game
  • Non-Fiction book: the only self-help book you'll ever need to read

Places I'll Be

  • March 17. 10 PM. Blind Bob's. Dayton Ohio. Red Hot Rebellion St. Patrick's Day ROCK SHOW
  • April 27, 28. 10 AM - 5 PM Gem City Comic Con. Dayton, Ohio. Exhibiting.

* Hold onto your hats. This section is going to have stuff flying on and off it like jelly beans on a trampoline.

Speaking of making awesome stuff.

I've always called the Ace Tucker audio fiction a "comic book for your ears." I really want it to be a real comic book too!
I think it'd be super rad to have each episode come with a corresponding comic book. So, if you know any GREAT comic artists that love truckers and Russian cyborg chimps, send 'em my way!

I just wanted to send you a quick little note to let you know there's a new free episode of Ace Tucker Space Trucker for your ears' enjoyment. This is part 1 of 2 and is, in my opinion, one of the funniest ones yet. You might disagree but you also might be drunk or high on glue fumes. I mean, hey, I don't hold it against you. You gotta have a hobby, right? You do you.

Anyway, click away and feast your psychoacoustic receptors on the majesty that is: EL CHUPACABRA!

In this amazing episode of Ace Tucker Space Trucker, April Massey and Hank the Basset Hound are on their own! That's right. It's a classic April and Hank mess around! When Ace and Ivan disappear it's up to April and Hank to track them down. But their investigation takes an unexpected turn when they seek out the evil and mysterious...CHUPACABRA!



  • Red Hot Rebellion
  • Creativity podcast - getting closer to becoming active
  • Vikings vs. Unicorns comic and game card

Listen to Ace Tucker Space Trucker

Ace Tucker Space Trucker is a serial science fiction comedy adventure podcast written, recorded, voiced, scored and edited by James R. Tramontana.

After Ace Tucker and his best friend (a Russian cyborg chimpanzee named Ivan Chimpanov) met Elvis Presley at a party, their fates became intertwined with a conspiracy that brought them to Earth in search of a super secret time machine built into Elvis’s prized 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz. With the help of a spitfire KFC cashier named April Massey and Hank, the foul-mouthed talking Basset Hound, Ace and Ivan traveled across space and time (and at least one alternate universe) to defeat an evil Andromedan alien called the Shiny Man. Their victory ensured Elvis Presley lived on to become the leader of the galaxy in the far distant future. As if that wasn’t unexpected enough, Ace and the gang also got a sweet new gig working for the Temporal Continuity Bureau (T.C.B.), the Galactic Union’s very own time-traveling police force. However, before the crew could get into the thick of it as fully licensed, bonded, and insured T.C.B. agents, they had some dues to pay...
