Ed Holmes - SubHuman: True Tales from Beneath the Sea
In SUBHUMAN, Ed tells true tales of his days as a mechanic aboard a diesel submarine in the Pacific ocean. From a fog-hornd hallucination heard as a child on the shores of Lake Erie to alarm bells in the depths of the blue Pacific, Ed seeks the answer to persistant question: How did I get here?
Caution: contains salty language and slapstick philosophizing.
