In other news…
There’s a great new “noir detective fiction with post-WWII history” book called ‘The Man From Mittelwerk’ written by M. Z. Urlocker (twin brothers Michael & Zach) out now. It was very neat to read a fictionalized version of our side project, The Del Fi’s and myself as characters in this novel.
I remember a few years ago, they had mentioned that a few tunes from my 2017 double album Nonsense and Heartache had acted as some inspiration for a book they were working on. As a companion to the novel, they have created a Spotify playlist, which includes these songs.

‘The Man From Mittelwerk’ is available via Audible, Chapters, selected local book stores and Amazon: https://amzn.to/3L5qCff
1950. The Cold War simmers, and ex-GI Jack Waters is called in to investigate a fatal accident at a research lab in California.
When Waters recognizes the victim, he realizes he must revisit his hidden past in World War II to solve a murder and prevent Nazi scientists from creating a terrible, new weapon in America.
Blending noir detective fiction with post-WWII history, The Man from Mittelwerk builds from the facts of Operation Paperclip, the U.S. government’s secret recruitment of 1,600 top Nazi scientists, to pose a dark what-if scenario.
