From Brad Warner, author of Hardcore Zen and Sex Sin And Zen.
When Bob Morningstar started working for Nakajima Productions, Tokyo's leading producer of trashy man-in-a-rubber-costume monster-on-the-loose movies he had no idea the job would involve danger, international espionage and the possible destruction of planet Earth. Bob has a problem. It seems he sent Death To All Monsters, the legendary “lost” film starring Gorezolla, Emperor of Monsters, to Shanghai by mistake.
What’s the big deal? Death To All Monsters, like every other Nakajima Productions movie, is a juvenile fantasy about the giant monster Gorezolla battling it out with one of his warty rubber enemies. But it’s a very big deal to Bob’s boss, Junichi “Jackie” Satsuma, chain-smoking, dirty joking veteran of the Japanese Imperial Army. He treats the only surviving print of the legendary “lost film” like it was the sort of classified document he used to deal with during the war against the Yankee pigs. And it’s a big deal to the Joe Tortelli, president and CEO of Great Destruction Productions, Nakajima Productions’ LA based US distribution arm, a man with shady connections to the secret services. And it’s a matter of major importance to Charlie Lo, thoroughly sleazy self-styled Ted Turner of Hong Kong in whose hands the missing movie has mysteriously ended up. How exactly did that happen? And just what is in this movie that makes it so damned valuable to everybody?
Then there’s the little matter of Bob’s close encounters with a certain “alien being” who just happens to resemble a man in a cheap rubber costume. The alien tells Bob that Death To All Monsters contains secrets of cosmic importance, secrets that could lead to mankind’s total destruction.
Now Bob must undertake a journey through the wilds of Hollywood, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Calcutta to get the movie back and save his girlfriend… Or die trying.
