Georgia decides to take her boyfriend Bone on a sojourn to Ocracoke Island, North Carolina for a respite from the electric ladyland of sultry city life selling PCP, LSD, morphine and marijuana to radical bikers, stick-up men, prostitutes, gangsters and groupies that make up the social calendar of his day-to-day business. Bone is now burned out, dangerously losing touch with reality.
A short story taken from an upcoming book titled, KING BONE. Georgia and Bone go to Jamaica after receiving a call from their roommate Bobby, who tells Bone Greg Allman of the Allman Brothers Band is hiding out at the Upper Deck Hotel, relaxing from an arduous concert tour. This sets in motion a fantasical adventure of humorous events.

A Cemetery Tale
Saturday morning finds Bobby and Bone hung over from last nights trailed display of defiled debutantes of debauchery, when along comes a fallen angel with the best PCP monkey dope in a Blue Moon--an instant recipe for another raucous party--culminating at a graveyard just across the District line, where lots of wine, luscious babes and good tunes lead to an unexpected twist.
