Suwanee, GA – While Science Fiction and fantasy have long remained staples of the literary world, new emerging writers like Bruce Lee are doing everything they can to get away from that typical “the world is about to end unless a group of unlikely heroes can save it” stereotype….
No, sorry; let’s backtrack. That stereotype is exactly what Lee is trying to play into – intentionally! The difference? Lee has ripped both genres to pieces, thrown their respective rulebooks out of the window and stitched everything back together into a rollicking new series that celebrates the fun and hilarity underpinning it all.
‘The Dam Situation’ is volume one in the ‘Dam Rodents’ series. Don’t expect any kind of convention; it’s a ride through the universe that will leave even the most savage of beasts chortling long into the night.
‘Dam Rodents: The Dam Situation’ is the first book in a new series of hilarious sci-fi/fantasy novels starring a cast of quirky characters charged with saving the world from total destruction.
It all starts at the Suwanee High Institute of Technology (SHIT), where Richard Johnson, a.k.a. Prick, informs his lab partner, Skunky, that he’s given up on developing Richard’s Vitamin Extract. So Skunky leaves the condescending Prick to his fancy electromagnetism and continues working on the beverage.
Fast forward: Prick—now much older—has seen his life spiral downward. And with no help from his grossly incompetent lawyer, Becky, he’s sentenced to hard labor at the Suwanee Dam.
There, the contentious crew gathers: There’s Prick, arrogance fully intact, and the gerbil Peaty, who can’t get no respect. There’s also Becky and her fellow beaver friend, Janelle. Then Skunky, now the rich and famous inventor of Skunky Brew, appears, accompanied by the fierce female feline Kitty.
Believing he’s the chosen one, Prick issues his instructions. The gang is to retrieve six pieces of a meteorite that have scattered to different earthlike planets.
They’ll have to work together, or it’s mission impossible—and the end of the world forever!
“I’m not going to try and get deep or philosophical in some kind of pretentious outpour – these books are about nothing but having heaps of fun and reminding readers to simply enjoy the adventures in life,” explains Lee, who admits to trying to buck the egotistical image many attribute to new authors. “I am a huge Trekkie, have always lived and breathed anything to do with Science Fiction and fantasy – but I just felt that the market needed something totally fresh.”
Continuing, “My way of producing it was to boil up the stereotypes of both genres and allow them to overflow out of the lives of a group of rodents who shouldn’t ever have been included in the story in the first place. It actually results in something very unique.”
Lee is already back at his writing table constructing volume two. With a new exaggerated, insane and incredibly-witty book about to hit the shelves soon, interested readers are urged to get started on volume one without delay.

‘Dam Rodents: The Dam Situation’ is the first volume of a sidesplitting and wholly-unique new sci-fi/fantasy series that intelligently exploits all of the clichés of both genres. But don’t confuse the “imminent total destruction of Earth” storyline with some kind of recycled creative laziness; Lee’s narrative breaks through into the limelight with a cast of unbelievable quirky rodents, an intense brand of wit and a bold reminder that some stories in life were written simply to be enjoyed…
And this is just what the author has to say about his book!
