Hot Tub Spaceship
Irradiated Thoughts on God, Life, and $#*! like that by Brian A. Pankratz

This is the story of a guy trying to find his way through some tough years, one page at a time. These are the irradiated thoughts of a doubter trying to find some humour and meaning in the midst of a health crisis, a spiritual crisis, and an employment crisis. And this is the gift from a dad trying to find the words to leave behind for his children. Something to remember him by when he's gone.

"No matter where people fall on the faith spectrum, I believe they will listen, because you write as a

man who has nothing to lose." - FriesenPress Editor.

"Endearing as all get-out." - Troy Wilson.

"If brokenness is a gift, maybe it's time for God to stop giving us presents." - Brian Pankratz
