They Call Me Nooner — The Novel by Laine Scheliga










Dade Nooner is a brawling Texas drifter skilled with words but quick on the trigger. Joined by a band of loco misfits and carrying a sack of rattlesnakes, Nooner is compelled to embark on an epic search for a lost geological Indian treasure by a mystic hunchbacked Apache. When the band encounters the deranged Roid Brothers, torture and bloodshed carry Nooner and his compadres through the gates of hell itself. “They Call Me Nooner” is an unforgettable black comedy of survival, revenge, and the redemption of a man driven to reluctant violence and reluctant surrender in his search for a place to call home.

Captain Hollywood

Captain Hollywood here! My story is one of adventure, danger, romance, and excitement. Throughout my years in Southern Calilfornia, I have moved silently through Hollywoodland, watched it swell and grow and have traversed the back lots and studios of the movie world. Each new adventure has been sparked by the acquisition of Hollywood treasures: toys, games, curiosities, oddities, and obscura, much of it gilded by the magic and muse of motion pictures; much of it discovered in dark, musty, forgotten places. It started out with eBay, where it was discovered that I had a talent for popular culture rarities and arbitrage. I then moved to Amazon, where boomer movie toys and collectibles reign supreme. Now I offer my own sensational website that joins the many platforms that make up Captain Hollywood's chain of Curiosity Shops. I invite you to explore the possibilities and see what wonders await. Some of the things you'll see will seem a little strange, some startling, some astonishing, and a visit to Captain Weird's Attic will certainly challenge your experience (mind your step as you mount the stairs). I'm Captain Hollywood, navigating the waters of curious excellence, always in search of the funusual. . . . welcome to the shop!
