About the Book
Other Duties As Assigned is the story of Marty McCallender, a regular guy who just wants to make it through the work day without falling asleep during a meeting.

------

One day he hears a rumor that the company is planning for the launch of a new product at the field office in the town of Arroyo Desperado.

------

Marty's job has taken him there in the past, and it just so happens that he's been asked to make another trip this week.

------

As he drives through the desert in a battleship-gray company car on a lonely two-lane highway, he remembers the time he dreamed he saw a flying saucer.

------

He had this dream back when he was a kid.

------

Marty and his buddy were exploring an extinct volcano outside of town when they stopped to rest, both falling asleep.

------

The dream was so vivid that, many years later, he remembers every detail.

------

It was a dream, wasn't it?

------

Marty stops for gas in the small town of Cakeville, named for the fine pastries available at a café that closed down years ago.

------

He strikes up a conversation with the reclusive proprietor of the gas station, who lives up in the hills outside of town.

------

He has built a deck where he sits and watches for UFOs, and invites Marty to come and see it on his way back from Arroyo Desperado.

------

When he arrives at the field office, there's not much to be found out.

------

The marketing types arrived in a small charter plane, picked up the manager and left.

------

Back home, Marty is soon asked to make another trip to the field office.

------

He's been told a Miss Green has asked for him specifically to assist in standardizing the office's product ordering and inventory systems.

------

Who is this Miss Green?
