From Hickey’s:

Road Kill  and No Cats, No Chocolate: Authors Alan Russell and Ken Kuhlken met at a mystery convention and soon hit the road to promote their books. Their bizarre adventures make delightful reading for anyone who has considered or dreamed of a career as a writing and for anyone else inclined to laugh at the antics of a couple strange fellows.

Reading Brother Lawrence is a memoir, in which a book and a memory lead the way to the Kingdom of Heaven.
