Bradley Denton's hilarious comic novel Buddy Holly is Alive and Well on Ganymede is becoming a big-budget science fiction movie.
The plot: Oliver Vale, whose Mother truly loved Buddy Holly, is watching a movie delivered by his satellite dish when the transmission is interrupted by a shot of a young Bully Holly stnding in a strange alien world holding a guitar. Holly reads a sign hanging from the camera in front of him, and it says, "For assistance, contact Oliver Vale." And then he reads out Oliver's home address.
At that moment, the Buddy Holly transmission which is originating from Ganymede, one of Jupiter's moons, is playing on every cable, satellite TV and radio station in the world. People get angry when you mess with their TV.
So, Oliver jumps on his vintage motorcycle and sets off on a mission to exhume Holly's body to prove it is still on Earth, and not playing guitar in orbit around Jupiter.
