Tales From the Wild Blue Yonder Trilogy Available as e-Books


After nearly 30 years of flight, veteran hang glider and trike pilot John “Ole” Olson has published a “thrillogy” of flying adventure books, Tales From the Wild Blue Yonder, which are now available as downloadable e-books. Each paperback book of adventures and misadventures is $19.95 on his website www.TalesFromTheWildBlueYonder.com. The Kindle version is $5.95, and the downloadable PDF version is only $3.99. Visit his Lulu store, click around at Kindle, or go to www.MobiPocket.com to read them on your smartphone.

For those who can’t abide the notion of buying anything on the Internet, just call the author at 425-280-4198 and he’ll take care of your order in person. The first book in the series, Recipes for Disaster, is 247 pages of incredible and amazing flying stories with titles such as “Jake the Human Cannonball,” “Prop Stopped Over Four Corners,” and “Hammer Bound for Hell.” For the price of a little more than one gallon of fuel, you get 30 easy-to-read short stories.

The reader is treated to 85 compelling episodes in the complete set. The author says he hopes his readers will move their lips as they read along, and he will personally refund your money if not satisfied. The e-books include many color photographs. His second book is Living Dangerously, and the third, Taking Mexico Flying, expands on a common theme of airborne adventures and misadventures, many traveling south of the border and beyond. “It ain’t always pretty,” explains the writer. “We were not choirboys down in Mexico, and these stories contain some adult language and situations.”

Listen to an audio file of one of his stories, “Ants in His Pants, or Terror in the Sky,” here, and see the author in person in this video demonstrating the setup of a trike wing. John also has a blog that chronicles his travels. Enjoy!
