THE ADVENTURES OF FORD FAIRLANE, the 1990 movie starring Andrew Dice, directed by Renny Harlin for 20th Century Fox, has become a worldwide cult classic with a dedicated fanbase around the world. The movie was based on original stories by journalist Rex Weiner, now collected in a new e-Book published by Cultmachine for Kindle and available on Amazon, celebrating the movie's 23rd anniversary.
Unavailable since first publication in 1980 as serialized weekly episodes in the New York Rocker and the LA Weekly, the two gritty tales follow private eye Ford Fairlane, the music industry’s “rock n roll detective,” as he solves cases involving the punk rock and new wave scenes in New York City and Los Angeles in the late-1970’s.
The stories include real musicians of the period such as Jame Chance of the Contortions, and real places such as the Starwood, a Los Angeles rock palace long since demolished, where punk stars such as Darby Crash regularly performed.
“In response to many requests," said Rex Weiner, "I’m pleased that Cultmachine is offering these stories through Kindle Publishing in which I created the character played on the big screen by the Diceman—and there will a new story sequel if enough fans demand it.”
