The bago boy

He wasn’t always The BAGO Boy. Not yet ten when he began his urban pirate career, Brad’s reputation for bravery rose to lofty heights in the neighborhood when an article about his perilous rescue of another boy appeared in the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin newspaper. Brad agreed to take the other boy with him while he shot movies inside the burned-out hulk of a formally majestic mansion. The other boy fell into the basement and was seriously injured, unable to get out of the cellar. Brad barely got the boy out of the house before it collapsed, filming as he did, and the viewfinder became his movie screen on which he saw himself as a pirate on a vanquished pirate ship, saving an injured crew mate. His pirate dreams became reality, launching his urban pirate career, with surprising results.


The novel chronicles how Supercross was created by Michael Goodwin in 1972, the sport’s growth and how television nurtured it through the 1970s, ‘80s and how it was nearly destroyed. Learn the truth about the Mickey Thompson murders and how that tragic event spelled doom for Supercross.


A story of how the Church of After Life Insurance, a religious Ponzi scheme, developed by guaranteeing participants a red carpet in an afterlife nirvana.
