Frankly Savannah is a marvelous romp through space, time, and oddball characters. The story centers around a Father/Daughter satellite repair company, a job they take investigating a gold coin, and a lost WWI pilot who discovers a time portal. The US Government dissolves; the Earth shifts on its access; an AI known as Elon Musk wants to create a race of super Tesla bots, and Amazon Alexa runs us all. Mix all that with a touch of female domination, quirky characters, unique restaurants, torture, revenge, and gold, and you have a masterful parody of what business and life could be like in the future.

Frankly Savannah Reviews:
This extravagantly playful science-fiction satire imagines a 22nd century in which current trends have run amok...
McManus’s epic does have a plot, a time-hopping pulp lulu that finds a World War I pilot crashing in the Alps in 1918 with a cargo that grows more precious as centuries past, though it’s the fun speculative elements—and Frank’s warmly crabby relationship with his daughter Savannah—that give the novel its quirky kick.
Takeaway: A mad science-fiction spree into an Alexa and Musk-ruled 22nd century.
