About the Author
Once they discovered zines, Mark Todd and Esther Pearl Watson never stopped making them. They've had illustrations in Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly and on CD covers and MTV; they've written and illustrated picture books; their paintings appear in art galleries--and still they keep making zines (and lots of friends while they're at it). They live and work in southern California.

Little Greed Men, book one of the Silverville Saga, is hilariously intriguing as the story of how Silverville turns from a run of the mill mountain community into a hopeful tourist destination unfolds. When UFO’s are sighted in the small Colorado mountain town of Silverville, things get a little crazy. The colorful characters that inhabit this small mountain town and their curious antics lead readers through more plot twists than the curves of a winding mountain pass as events unfold with surprising outcomes. The whole town is turned upside down as believers, skeptics and those who are simply curious flow in. Small town politics come into play when two factions clash, the old-timers, happy with their small town lives and the progressive movers and shakers who want to put Silverville on the map. There’s no end to the things some folks will do to make a quick buck and how far others will go to see things put back to normal. Little Greed Men is a thoroughly enjoyable read that will keep readers chuckling to the last page.
But Buford Price capitalizes on the encounter anyway. The whole town does. Every business it seems is renamed and revamped with a UFO theme. And now the people of Silverville are ready to "go public".
They've built a theme park and hired a UFO specialist from out of town. Earl Bob Jackson.
But while relieving himself outside of his car in a Colorado snowstorm, Earl Bob is hit and killed by Billy Noble. Billy is a con man looking for "The Big One". When Billy realizes that he killed this man, he takes his wallet loaded with cash and his car. The dead man doesn't need them anymore.
When Billy arrives in the next town (Silverville), he's greeted at the local diner by a small group of men who naturally mistake him for Earl Bob. After hearing their plans for the town, Billy thinks this just might be the Big One he's been looking for.
If he only knew what kind of Adventure he's really in for...
