ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., March 29, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Daniel P. Douglas announces his script, "Richter's War," has won best short screenplay at the February 2016 Los Angeles CineFest. The science fiction World War II hardboiled detective story has previously won or placed in multiple contests during 2015 and 2016.

"Richter's War" is a 22-page script that embodies the essence of an old "Twilight Zone" episode. The science fiction screenplay holds feature film development potential and tells the story of hard-boiled Los Angeles detective of German heritage, Karol Eugen Richter, aka Geno Richter.

Richter is used to taking down Nazis for the War Department, but during one late night in February 1942, circumstances sweep him into unexpected wartime action involving something much more than the typical Nazi conspirators.

"Richter's War" draws on the mystique of hard-boiled detectives and the strangeness of the rumored enemy attack and anti-aircraft artillery barrage known as "The Great Los Angeles Air Raid." The story integrates themes of racism, government, war, society, and human nature amidst science fiction action, suspense, humor, Nazis, and an alien.

Geno Richter is a tough hero -- he must be in order to take on Nazi spies and an apparent alien invasion of Los Angeles. But he's also tough enough to take a stand against the U.S. Government's internment of people of Japanese ancestry during World War II. This dreadful episode is a key ingredient of Richter's War, and Geno rises to the occasion in his own special way.

The Richter's War short script is adapted from one of Douglas's science fiction short stories, which is published by Geminid Press, LLC and available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CXNVPOG/) as the eBook "Richter's War: Case of the Japanese Alien."
