Spotted on Craigslist:

  I have written a book based upon one of my plays - "The Story of XYZ" and it is a satire of religion, among other things. It is certainly unique and the best way to describe it would be if Ed Wood had rewritten the story of Moses as a science fiction story. Basically, it is the story of a farmer who is approached by aliens from a far away planet who need his help in finding people to help rebuild their world, which is dying from both war and disease. I can't be too descriptive, for obvious reasons. I have had ideas stolen before, so I have to be careful. Anyway, I am looking for a children's book illustrator to illustrate the book. The shadow of the story is that we are reading the official version of how mankind wound up on this new planet and of course, it is all propaganda. The real story is that mankind has been hoodwinked into going to this new planet and become the slaves of the aliens.
Even though it is a comedy, it should be taken seriously.
I am also looking for someone who has connections in the publishing world - I want to get it published. This spring, I will be mounting a production of the play, along with others plays, including "The Jackie Simon Show!" I am hoping to sell copies of the book at the theater. It should be interesting. I am offering $200 dollars plus 10 percent of any future sales and I would like "Joseph the Wise" to be read by someone in Hollywood. It would make for an interesting movie but one thing at a time, right?
Thank you for your interest.  

BAHAHA, this was too funny.
