Robert Weinberg Presents
Self Storage Audiobook
by Jay Bonansinga
Read by Nick Santa Maria. Liner Notes by Robert Weinberg
He’s John Fitzgerald, an underground comic artist, a minor cult figure, and he’s on his way home for Christmas. A late addition was his six-year-old son Jake, pushed on him at the last minute by his ex-wife, Sarah. Despite all of his protests, John really didn’t mind. He loved his son and the week-long break would give him some time to counter all the religious fervor his “holy, holy, holy” ex has been pouring into Jake’s mind. Once upon a time, John and Sarah had been a married pair of wild, sexually liberated atheists who believed in nothing other than having a good time. Then Jake had been born, and Sarah turned to religion. And turned and turned and turned. Leaving John hooked on heroin and all alone - except for visiting rights. And this Christmas weekend surprise.
There was only one minor glitch in the plan. John had just delivered some art for an underground comic and the editor had been less than impressed. Thinking back, John remembered a similar assignment from years ago that had been censored so badly it had never been published. Which made it perfect for this X-rated rag. All he had to do was pick up the originals which he had wisely stored away in his self-storage locker up near the airport and bring them to the editor on the Monday following. Easy enough. Or so it seemed.
At six, Jake was filled with the incredible curiosity of a child. He found the massive self-storage center where John’s unit was located fascinating. The huge elevator that took them to the right floor was amazing. He thought the long halls with their multitude of locked doors incredible. And he thought that John’s room-sized space was the neatest place on Earth. That was, until he accidentally stumbled into the inside door control and locked him and John into the self-storage unit with no way to get out. Trapped in an underground chamber, with no one on the premises, and no food or drink. Caught like bugs in a jar with the lid closed tight. Doomed. And then, things started getting really bad….

He has written numerous bestselling horror and thrillers novels including the immenseiy successful, The Walking Dead series which has been on the New York Times bestsellers list. About his work, The Chicago Tribune raved, “His twisting narratives make the work of his contemporaries look tame.” Read by Nick Santa Maria.
