LOS ANGELES, Calif., May 30, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Marking the 23rd anniversary of “The Adventures of Ford Fairlane,” the controversial 1990 motion picture released by 20th Century Fox, directed by Renny Harlin, and starring Andrew Dice Clay, indie e-Book publisher Cultmachine is offering Ford Fairlane fans for the first time the original stories on which the movie was based.
“The Adventures of Ford Fairlane” (ISBN: 978-0-9840327-6-1), unavailable since first publication in 1980 as serialized weekly episodes in the New York Rocker and the LA Weekly, the stories were written by journalist and screenwriter Rex Weiner. In the two gritty tales, private eye Ford Fairlane, the music industry’s “rock n roll detective,” solves cases involving the punk rock and new wave scenes in New York City and Los Angeles in the late-1970’s.
The stories are offered at http://www.cultmachine.com/ in a single e-Book edition for $4.99 via Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing.
“The Adventures of Ford Fairlane has become a cult classic with a dedicated fan-base around the world,” said Rex Weiner. “I’m pleased that Cultmachine, in response to many requests, is offering these stories in which I created the character played on the big screen by Andrew Dice Clay.”
